College career[edit | edit source]
Freshman year[edit | edit source]
Copeland played in all 33 games as a freshman, making 11 starts, and earned a spot on the All-Big East Rookie Team. A three-time Big East Rookie of the Week, Copeland averaged 6.8 points and 3.8 rebounds per game. He reached double figures 11 times, including a season-high 20-point, eight-rebound effort at Seton Hall. 
Sophomore year[edit | edit source]
Copeland started all 33 games for the Hoyas, averaging 11.1 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per games. He reached double figures 20 times, highlighted by a career-high 32-point, nine-rebound effort at Marquette.
Junior year[edit | edit source]
Following a successful sophomore campaign, Copeland was expected to be a major contributor in 2016-17. Copeland suffered a herniated disc in his back prior to the 2016-17 season, and played in only seven games for the Hoyas before shutting it down and announcing his intention to transfer after the fall semester.  On January 2, 2017, Copeland announced he would be transferring to Nebraska. 
Copeland applied for a medical hardship waiver for the games he played at Georgetown during the 2017-17 season. Since he played in less than 10 games, he was eligible to be awarded the 2016-17 season as his redshirt year, meaning he would have two full seasons at his next school. On September 12, 2017, the NCAA granted his waiver, allowing him two full seasons of eligibility at Nebraska.
