Washington State Football Recruiting Nuggets: Late Coug Considerations

As LOI Day closes in on us (only two Wednesdays from now), the Cougs have a mostly full class of verbal commits. However there are some yet a few undecided hopefuls that are still figuring out their college choice and it may come down to a school receiving a fax before we know who it is.

To save some time, they all enjoyed their trips to Washington State and were pleasantly surprised with their experiences. Here’s an idea of where they stand, as of now.

  • CB Chidobe Awuzie: We thought he might commit during his visit, but he is taking his decision to the mat. Chidobe in our estimation would be a huge pluck for the Cougar secondary, giving the Cougs two strong candidates for a starting freshman spot in the defensive backfield. Two others remain in the chase though, SJSU and Colorado. Leach and Mastro to visit and try to seal the deal next week.
  • DL Zelt Minor: Still has officials this weekend and next with his other two schools, Texas Tech and SMU. Can’t say that I like our chances much in my ‘gut feeling’. Few would add to the name-game like a Zelt would though, and we could use even more D-line help.
  • DE Malik Jenkins: Decommitted and has stated he is looking to stay closer to home at smaller schools, unless the real urge to play in a top conference taps his shoulder at the last second.
  • WR Sabastian LaRue: Seems to be a different story every day. A&M is the big time player at this point but with 6 other receivers and 35 known recruits already going to College Station, WSU remains a dark-horse for a last second decision. Leach was just in his home last night.
  • CB Darius Allensworth: Committed to Cal but Jamal Morrow is trying hard to get his high school teammate in Crimson and Allensworth is considering it.
  • CB Marcellus Pippens: Committed to Utah but has left the door open for a change of heart to Wazzu.
  • DE Takkarist McKinley: Also committed to Cal but WSU closed the gap enough for serious consideration after his official visit.
