Cope-Fitzpatrick is nation's top tight end 

January, 19, 2012
After checking in as the No. 2 tight end for much of the process, USC commit Jalen Cope-Fitzpatrick (Rocklin, Calif./Whitney) leapt 15 spots in the final ESPNU 150 and grabbed the No. 1 spot away from Florida commit Colin Thompson (Warminster, Pa./Archbishop Wood).

Cope-Fitzpatrick had a tremendous showing during practices for the Under Armour All-America Game and impressed during the game as well, hauling in several passes, including a touchdown.
