WSU continues to host recruits this weekend as the final dash for commits is on. This is potentially the final big recruiting weekend as visitors are concerned before signing day. Here are our thoughts on the prep players attending Pullman over the weekend:

- Cole Madison is a fine looking athlete but it’s likely he’s got some growing to do in order to compete at this level. Played DE/TE in high school so he has tremendous feet and good hand/eye but tends to stand tall when approaching a run block. Despite being a highly rated G, he hasn’t been heavily recruited because his versatility in the pass game didn’t allow him to show consistent blocking mechanics and he wasn’t really an elite pass catcher. Madison will be really good eventually but he’s a prime redshirt candidate. Easily the smallest OL going onto the roster but has tremendous upside and can’t wait to see him hopefully blossom into a starting candidate by rs sophomore or junior season.
- Matt Meyer is a kid with all of the size and tools to challenge for major PT as early as right now. Very consistent in pass protection and a better than avg puller for draws and traps as LT. Another guy that wasn’t heavily recruited, but that’s not uncommon for linemen in WA, even the better ones. In my estimation is going to be really, really good. I see him challenging for a spot as a freshman in 2013, but ultimately I think the Cougs have enough to let this kid redshirt. I hope that’s the case, anyway. If it’s not and he is forced into action I like what he brings to the table.
- Jamal Morrow is another solidly committed Coug and has the physical tools and patience to excel in any offensive scheme. With the exciting Gerard Wicks now favoring UCLA if they offer him this weekend during his visit there and little to no word from Olito Thompson, Morrow figures to be the stand-alone gem from RB in this class. Ran for over 2,000 and 15 tds as a senior and I cannot wait to see him become the feature back in 2-3 seasons.
- We know very little Charleston White, to be quite frank. He’s making the trip to be with his boy Montrel Meander, who we’ll feature in the morning. Interesting prospect with not a whole lot of fanfare but offers from Tulsa, Colorado State, New Mexico, Washington State and others. He’s being recruited now as an inside receiver but his offer might be contingent on a couple other receivers still deciding.
Not much news being that these guys are all committed (save for White). The offense isn’t nearly as exciting as the defensive prospects coming in this weekend and we’ll recap those in the morning.
