But the issue can be peacefully put to rest now, thanks to a few straight forward comments from Coug commit Gerard Wicks himself, via this report from the incredibly credible Braulio Perez of CougFan.com.
As stated in last night’s article on the matter, Mr. Wicks has been looking around the pond since his commitment to Washington State way back in June, 2012, testing the waters of some other schools and most recently actually verbally lauding UCLA to give him an offer that he might not be able to refuse.
After claiming a day or two ago that he hasn’t been and won’t be offered by the Bruins, his escapades pretty officially came to a thrilling conclusion for all Cougar fans Tuesday evening, as Wicks vehemently denied the UW reports’ validity and promised the Coug-faithful a lil’ somethin’ somethin’ (citing the Perez report):
The coaching staff at WSU has been there for me since day one and I know they are the best school for me. I know they’ve had their struggles in the past, but I promise you that once I get there, WSU will be coming up in the Pac-12.
So no you ask where did this erroneous information come from? A three sentence report from the UW site Dawgman.com had cited that Wicks would be tripping Seattle this weekend. Oh what I wouldn’t give away to be a misinformed Husky!
