Penn State Baseball’s Tyson Cooper Transfers To Nova Southeastern University

Penn State baseball catcher Tyson Cooper announced his new destination Wednesday via Instagram after spending four years with his father, former head coach Rob Cooper, and the Nittany Lions.

Cooper will head south to Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, for his final year of eligibility.

“To my Penn State fam, thank you for these last four years,” Cooper said on Instagram. “To my teammates specifically, thank you for letting it all hang out for the program regardless of what the odds looked like.”

Cooper was recruited to Penn State by his former head coach and father from the Class of 2019 but medically redshirted his freshman season in 2020.

In the 2021 season as a redshirt freshman, Cooper appeared in 11 games and started in three. He registered two hits, two RBI, two runs, six walks, and a stolen base en route to an 18-24 overall season.

The following season, Cooper received more time behind home plate and appeared in 19 games with 10 starts. His stats also increased and the redshirt sophomore recorded four hits and three runs while drawing six walks.

The catcher’s redshirt junior season put all of his abilities on full display. Cooper appeared in 26 games and put up his best numbers in his college career including nine runs, 12 hits, and nine RBI.

Cooper will arrive at Nova Southeastern as it rolls off a 36-17 overall record in the Division II Sunshine State conference.
