Terrell Cooper signs with TCU: National Signing Day 2017

The DE from Lindale adds beef to TCU’s trenches.

NCAA Football: Kansas at Texas Christian Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

TCU added Terrell Cooper to the #CarterBoys17 on National Signing Day when he faxed in his National Letter of Intent to the Frogs. Cooper, a sleeper prospect from Lindale, Texas, is a 6-2, 258 pound defensive end that adds some edge beef to TCU’s growing defensive trenches.

TCU was Cooper’s only P5 offer, so the Frogs were battling with the likes of Memphis, North Texas, Texas State and SFA for the defensive end’s services.

As TCU tries to get bigger on the defensive line, they’re looking to add size to the edge of the line as well. We all know about the big bodies inside, like Bethley, Ellis, and Tu’ua, but Cooper, at 258 pounds, is now the heaviest defensive end on TCU’s roster.

He’s got a great motor, uses his leverage well, and is s-t-r-o-n-g. He’ll be a beast on the edge in Patterson’s defense.

Cooper gives TCU two defensive ends in this class, joining Dennis Collins, as TCU makes a concerted effort to bolster their trenches.
