Jay Johnson is building his first team at LSU with some key pieces from Arizona, including one of the Wildcats’ most reliable relief pitchers.
Freshman Riley Cooper, a left-handed pitcher, announced Friday he was transferring to LSU after one season with the UA. He becomes the third ex-Wildcat to follow Johnson to Baton Rouge, following slugger Jacob Berry and righty Bryce Collins.
After much thought and consideration I have decided to further my education and play baseball at LSU. I’m thankful for my time at Arizona and especially my teammates, I wish you all the best.
