We have a couple updates for you this Monday morning, in addition to the Barry Ware commit news that went down late yesterday. First, 3-star Washington State target DE Patrick Choudja has taken the Cougars out of the running for his services, according to Boise sports director and WSU alum Jay Tust on twitter:

So one in the coup and another out, now the Cougs turn their focus to big 6’8, 270 pound defensive end prospect Jalen Canty as he gets ready to announce his decision sometime today to make a collegiate career for himself in either Salt Lake and Pullman.
This by far is going to be the hardest decision

My top two now are wazzu and Utah — Jalen Canty (@Mr_Nodaysoff23) January 27, 2014
That means Canty has dropped offers from Washington, Oregon and Boise State off of the side of a cliff, or these offers no longer exist. Either way it’s big news for either of these programs as they seek a tall, athletic game changer at defensive end to add to their front for 2014. He just got done tripping to Utah and loved the steak, but he had a great time in Pullman just a week ago as well.
After the Choudja news and for no particular reason, feeling pretty good about the Wazzu chances right now. (Am I just Mr. Obvious or what?! It’s 50/50!)
We may also soon get word from 3-star ILB Xavier Ulutu as he just finished up his trip to Pullman. Let’s hope for a big day.
