It has been a journey, but I have found my home. God has shown me the way and I could not be more grateful. GO COUGS!! @BYUfootball @SanMarcosFBall pic.twitter.com/4R5DvrLb4z— Cooper McMullin (@McmullinCooper) June 19, 2021
McMullin is a 6-foot-6 305 pound tackle that prepped at San Marcos High School (San Marcos, California). As a senior he lined up at left tackle and also spent a little time on defense. He hasn’t been rated and is a late addition to the Cougars class of 2021 as a preferred walk-on.
I caught up with McMullin to ask him about his recruiting.
BYU Insider: Why did you choose BYU?
McMullin: I’ve always had my eye on BYU because my dad played there. When I went up for a camp recently I really fell in love with the program and its culture. After meeting all the coaches I knew I had found my home.
BYU Insider: What are some of your favorites?
McMullin: I listen to rock and Hawaiian music
BYU Insider: What is one of your greatest accomplishment in sports?
McMullin: I also love to play rugby, and winning a championship following an undefeated rugby seasons was definitely a high point.
BYU Insider: What is the best advice you’ve ever received?
McMullin: The recruiting process was challenging in California because the state is so strict on COVID and the football season came so late. I was advised to be patient and leave it in God’s hands. So I did what I could to continue to grind and get better. Eventually God led me to BYU and I could not be more grateful. Go Cougars!
BYU Insider: Who is a current player that you seek to emulate on the field?
McMullin: I love what John Denney did in his NFL career (BYU defensive end, Miami Dolphins long snapper 2005-2018)Tweets by McmullinCooper
