***Porter was recruited by former UCLA Rb coach Jim Mastro, who came on board with Mike Leach to WSU. He tried to bring Porter’s commitment with him but to no avail. Looks like the uniting just needed a couple years, as Mastro finally gets his man.

  • ESPN #45 CB Darrien Molton *** (VERBAL)

5’10”, 165 lbs – Chaparrel HS – Temecula, CA

*Other Notable Offers: Duke, Nevada, Colorado, Cal

**Considered by many to be one of the top cover-corners in the state of California, but Scout only rated him 95th on their board to this point.

  • Scout #100 WR Deontay Burnett *** (VERBAL)

5’11”, 160 lbs – Junipero HS – Gardena, CA

*Other Notable Offers: Colorado State, Miami, Utah

**Burnett brings more excitement to the receiving corps at WSU, not overly fast but a fairly good athlete and apparently well-recruited with Miami liking what they saw.

  • Scout #43 WR Dominic Davis **** (VERBAL)

5’10”, 175 lbs – Bishop Alemany HS – Mission Hills, CA

*Other Notable Offers: BYU, Colorado State, Fresno State, Oregon State, SDSU, SMU, UCLA, USC, Washington

**Davis is highly-touted and brings a ton of speed along with him. He may prove to be the fastest player in all of California in his division, as he is expected to win his track-and-field championships.

***Davis signifies the fourth 4-star athlete for WSU in the 2015 class.

  • ESPN #104 OG Cedric Bigge-Duren *** (VERBAL)

6’6″, 295lbs – Oceanside HS – Oceanside, CA

*Other Notable Offers: Montana, Nevada, San Jose State

**Bigge-Duren brings more size to the O-line at WSU. He’s been under-evaluated at Scout, but at ESPN checks in as a solid OG.

  • Chris Sailer Kicking #15 K Matt Abramo *** (VERBAL)

6’2″, 170 lbs – Casa Grande HS – Petaluma, CA

*Other Notable Offers: San Jose State, Air Force, Yale

**Abramo has perhaps the strongest leg in all the land, according to Chris Sailer kicking academy. However his accuracy is a slight question mark, which is why he is not even top-10. Still, he ranks out as a perfect 6-of-6 stars for Chris Sailer.

  • Scout #91 OG Noah Myers *** (VERBAL)

6’5″, 300 lbs – Oceanside HS – Oceanside, CA

*Other Notable Offers: Montana, Weber State

**Myers is another big guard prospect for WSU and brings size and a good tape.
