DT Darian Cooper selects Iowa over Michigan, GT

Posted by Adam Jacobi

Darian Cooper, a 6'1", 290-pound defensive tackle from DeMatha High School, just gave Iowa's recruiting class a boost by committing to the Hawkeyes this morning. Cooper was expected to select between Iowa, Michigan, and Georgia Tech. The story was first reported by Washington Post reporter Josh Barr. 

Cooper was one of our three uncommitted players to watch in the Big Ten, considering the amount of help both Iowa and Michigan need on their respective defensive lines. Cooper should have a good shot to play as a true freshman, though his physical similarity to top returning DT Mike Daniels means that barring injury to Daniels, Cooper shouldn't expect to start in 2011. Still, he's got a bright future in Iowa City and Iowa coaches are undoubtedly thrilled to have this late addition to the class.
