Jonathon Cooper talks about receiving an offer from Ohio State

Central Ohio star Jonathon Cooper talks about getting an offer from Ohio State.

Many of the state of Ohio's top players in the 2016 class were in attendance for Friday Night Lights camp last night and one of them walked away from the camp with a scholarship offer from the Buckeyes in Gahanna (OH) Lincoln defensive end/linebacker Jonathon Cooper.

The Central Ohio star already held offers from Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, and Toledo heading into the night, but received the one he wanted most after a solid camp performance.

"They offered me," Cooper said with a smile after the camp. "I did not commit. I'm going to take my time and will probably decide at the end of my junior season or the beginning of my senior season."

Cooper learned that he had an offer from Ohio State defensive line coach Larry Johnson.

"Coach Johnson offered me at the end of camp," he continued. "I told him I was really excited and happy."

While he thought he performed well, he was a little surprised he got offered last night.

"I was kind of surprised," he admitted. "I thought I did a good job at the camp, but overall, I'm just really excited to get the offer."

Overall, Cooper said he had an enjoyable experience performing under the lights at Ohio Stadium last night.

"It was an amazing experience for me," he stated. "Just being around the coaches and getting a workout in. It was just great."

Cooper worked out as a linebacker and defensive end, but Ohio State is recruiting him as an end right now. He spoke to Luke Fickell after the camp, who had some good things to say about his performance.

"I worked out as a linebacker, then afterwards went over and did some 1-on-1's  with the defensive line," he continued. "Coach Fickell talked to me afterwards and said I did an amazing job and really likes what I did."
