This was a huge commitment. Washington State really needed something to bump up this class. By Tyler committing to Wazzu earlier today they bumped up 15 spots on Scout.com to #57 in the nation with only 3 commits so far.
We are in pretty good hands at QB for the next several years, I really like Austin Apodaca and the competition between those two will be something to watch for. I can see either of them beating out Cody Clements who could even transfer possibly, who knows as of now… still very early.
Yes we all know the average fan will be like… “He hasn’t signed a NLI yet, so I don’t care”.
That isn’t how you should think because ASU is out for sure now that they picked up a QB commitment right after Tyler committed. Bruggman’s coach said he believes he’ll stay committed because he never has gone back on his word and doesn’t plan on it. Tyler just needs to add a little weight on him and he’ll be good to go. Really accurate guy like all of Leach’s prior QB’s. He isn’t the most mobile QB, which he needs to improve on but he’s still got plenty of time before he heads up to the Palouse in over a year.
Here are some highlights of Tyler Bruggman:
Just for fun, found this on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=R8kM9d84E8c

We aren’t the only ones who are excited about this news, current WSU S Commit Trevor Walker tweeted this when he saw the news via Twitter.
“YESSIR WE GOT THAT QB !!! EVERYBODY BETTER LOOKOUT FOR
Very nice pick-up from Coach Leach! I’m very excited for this upcoming season and this recruiting class!
Great to be a Coug!
