Copeland reflects on WVU

Port St. Lucie (Fla.) three-star athlete Travares Copeland hit the road this past weekend for his second official visit. He made his way to West Virginia.
"The visit was really good," Copeland said of his time in Morgantown. "It was perfect. It was wonderful."
While the 5-foot-11, 175-pound athlete had a great time, he did not commit.
"No, I didn't commit," Copeland said. "I didn't really consider it (committing) because it is really only my second visit. I did really like it, but I want to see more places."
During the visit, Copeland had a chance to sit down and speak at length with head coach Dana Holgorsen as well as other members of his staff.
"They told me that they want me as a slot (receiver) and that they would get me the ball a lot and let me do something with it," Copeland said. "That is the position I would prefer to play."
Copeland said that he wasn't really hosted by just one player, but instead the entire group of wideouts on the roster.
"I spent time mostly with the slots and outside receivers," Copeland said. "They said that the offense is exciting and fun, that they get you the ball a lot, and of you work hard you are rewarded."
With the visit now concluded, Copeland says that he definitely feels as though West Virginia could be the right place for him when his recruitment comes to a resolution.
"What stood out is that I could see myself being there for four years," Copeland said.
Copeland's only prior official visit was to Rutgers, a week prior. He says that it is tough to compare the two universities he has taken official visits to.
"They are different places," Copeland said. "There are mountains out here (at West Virginia) and Rutgers is in the city. So they are different. I liked them both."
This coming weekend Copeland doesn't expect to take a visit. He intends to officially visit Kentucky and Florida International in January, but dates have yet to be scheduled. As for a leader, the Treasure Coast prospect isn't set to put anyone on top.
"I haven't named anyone yet," Copeland said.
Over his four-year career, Copeland was 246-for-480 passing for 4,028 yards and 44 touchdowns. He also rushed 262 times for 1,142 yards and 14 touchdowns. As a receiver, a position he rarely played, he had 17 receptions for 161 yards and a touchdown.
