WSU Football Recruiting: Cougs Still Searching for 2014 Addition, Offer Big Cali WR


Mike Leach and Washington State are apparently not done recruiting for their 2014 class, which has one spot left to fill if they are so inclined. Santa Fe Springs wide receiver Alec Dana received his first FBS offer from the Cougars on Wednesday.

Dana is a big kid, standing 6’3″ and weighing in at 190 lbs. While the current roster is pretty stacked from a height-standpoint, the Cougs could certainly use more tall kids in their young, future receiving corps.

Dana had taken a year off from football to get his grades in order, and after suffering a broken collarbone during his senior season at St. Paul high school there has been little interest in his services. But this past month, after he had proven his academic eligibility, his recruiting has picked up, receiving more and more interest from teams that are looking to add to their ’14 class after coming up a little short on signing day.

USC, UCLA, Fresno State, Utah and others are still in the hunt, though they haven’t offered yet. Since he wasn’t in school full time this past year, Dana will go into his college of choice just as any true freshman would, with a five year clock to play four.

It remains to be seen if Dana is the final offer for WSU in this class, or he may be the first of a couple if he doesn’t commit and sign. Obviously the Cougs can only offer one at a time at this point and options are slim-to-none, but they are actively searching to fill that final slot.

WSU has five receiver commits in their 2014 class, Texas A&M transfer Sebastian LaRue, Barry Ware, Calvin Green,  Keith Harrington and Zaire Andre.
