The Washington State coaching staff has been shut down for the holidays, but the Cougars are still hoping for some late presents in the form of recruiting commits. Of course the national recruiting “dead period” began earlier this week and runs through January 3rd, but recruits can still call coaches if they so choose. It looks like Mike Leach is not yet satisfied with his receiving class, so we have news as to who a few WR recruits are that the Cougs are hoping will jump on board from here to Feb. 6, which is National Signing Day.
WR Taj Williams is a 6’3″ 195 lbs, 4-star out of Florida and has whittled it down to four, including WSU. Williams has put it out there that he might want to be part of the renewal of competition for Pac-12 titles at Wazzu, but also has a strong trio of other schools in the framework. Alabama, Florida State and Louisville are the three and each is coming off of a strong season with particularly better resumes. Williams is the #45 receiving prospect.
WR Darren Andrews is a 5’10″ 160 lbs, 3-star from Cali and is currently committed to UCLA. However Andrews is intrigued by Leach’s offense and has a scheduled visit to Pullman on the 11th of January. He has said that WSU and UCLA are the two with the opportunity to land him and he is not necessarily 100% to the Bruins just yet.
WR Tatum Taylor out of Seattle is another 5’10″ 160 lbs kid who is looking into Arizona State, Washington State and Oregon State, respectively. He really enjoyed his trip to Pullman earlier this month and is high on the Cougs. Taylor brings a rocket booster strapped to him, sizzling a 40 yard dash in 4.2 seconds. That speed gives him a real shot at being a special teams returner, but also has Oregon looking at him for a track scholly as well.
