Washington State is on the board in the 2014 men’s basketball recruiting game, as Tremaine Isabell out of Garfield High in Seattle signed his letter of intent today. As you can see in the Cougfan photo above, he and his family and friends were All Coug’d Up for the signing.

Isabell is a 6’1, 170 pound combo guard that has a pretty solid skill set. He is quick and can create his own shot off the dribble while being a solid passer. He is also a decent defender, which the Washington State coaching staff will look to develop with him.

The Cougars have three open spots for the 2014 class as it stands. D.J. Shelton and Will DiIorio are seniors and 2013 signee Danny Lawhorn failed to even make it to midnight madness after being dismissed for breaking school rules. Chances are the Cougs will be looking for a couple big men to replace the other two spots.

It’s a safe bet the Cougs won’t be using those two spots up until the regular signing period in April. Isabell was originally committed to sign in 2015 after a year of development, but the Lawhorn dismissal has sped up the need for another guard.
