Darren Andrews is still committed to UCLA after his visit to Washington State last week. However, he’s been an interesting story over the past 2 weeks in particular because it’s being speculated that he is a late squeeze-out in the Bruins class. Interestingly enough, Andrews’ uncle is the WR’s coach for the Bruins, so you would think there would be a place for him there.
Still, the rumors that he will be “replaced” by a better prospect are out there, so it’s possible even his uncle is weighing in on PT or other factors the Bruins might have issue with. We might not know till signing day. He did say that he was pleasantly surprised with what WSU had to offer and that they are a close 2nd at the moment. He is going to talk to his parents and hash it out.
Many Coug fans feel like the Bruins would be missing the boat on Andrews and would be ecstatic if he flipped Crimson. We’ll try to get you Andrews’ decision as soon as he makes it over the next couple of weeks.

CB Kevin King hasn’t kindled any type of flame towards WSU. In fact, the Husky commit was ordered not to attend his official visit to Pullman, with the threat of the Huskies pulling his scholarship offer. This dirty and ultimately cowardly recruiting tactic by Sark and friends kept King from his destination last week and in my opinion puts the Dawgs on the hot seat for playing King early. Maybe not 2013 early, but early enough that it makes it worth the trouble for a young man who had some options and apparently doesn’t anymore.
OL Dwayne Johnson is probably a no-go at this point as well. He’s set visits for Nebraska, Oklahoma and Arkansas so his recruitment has picked up and I think he wants to be closer to home.
