WSU Football Recruiting: Ronald Monroe Wants to Play QB, Decommits from Washington State


The Washington State football team is full-up on quarterbacks at the moment, so when they offered 6’3, 180 lbs QB Ronald Monroe out of Sugar Land, TX, they did so as a wide receiver.

At the time the Texas native was ecstatic about the move, committing and saying he had no intention of changing his mind. Of course, that was after having been committed to Texas State, WSU was a big-time leap. He was also the fourth and final receiver the Cougars were looking for this recruiting cycle, but all that has changed with the additions of Barry Ware and Sebastian LaRue.

After taking a few visits, Monroe has now opted to move on for the second time. We don’t know if Mike Leach and Co. asked him to be willing to delay enrollment due to a high yield of receivers, or if he simply couldn’t refrain from the itch to play quarterback in college. After all he was a dandy in high school, throwing for over 3,300 yards while throwing 42 touchdowns and just 5 interceptions. He is currently looking at the options of SJSU, Utah State and just got an intriguing offer from Vanderbilt. If I were guessing, I’d say he’s headed to the SEC.

The decommit, for now, takes the Cougs back to 25 verbals which constitutes a full class. There is still movement being made though, and you can see more updates on the class in motion HERE.
