RECRUITING CONNECTIONS are always fascinating to study. But few of them go back this far. The Cougs are recruiting hard 4-star QB prospect Cammon Cooper out of Lehi, Utah, this spring. And Cooper’s head coach in high school and one WSU assistant go back more than 30 years.

PULLMAN — Surprised? Hardly, says B.J. Salmonson. The fifth-year senior came into the spring at the top of the depth chart at right guard but highly touted transfer Robert Valencia, who arrived in January, was right on his heels.

WAY BACK IN 2001, when Steve Gleason had just started his NFL career, his mom Gail Gleason penned this classic about the draft. It was before Gleason's famous blocked punt heard 'round the world, and before he became world famous for his battle against amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). But Gail's diary of her son's trials and tribulations during the 2000 draft still resonates to this day.

IT IS AN April morning in 2008 and my phone rings. It promises to be a milestone day -- you wake up and your NFL dream is about to become a reality. Nine years later, for Cougars Gabe Marks, Shalom Luani, River Cracraft, Riley Sorenson and others, I wonder if their NFL draft experiences will be similar to my own.

WHEN IT COMES to the recruitment of 4-star quarterback Cammon Cooper, the WSU coaches have made it quite clear where they stand with the touted signal caller. They want him in crimson and in Pullman in 2018. Cooper has had the Cougars among his top schools for quite some time, and a move by WSU on Wednesday definitely stood out to him.

PULLMAN —Washington State's Nnamdi Oguayo (6-3, 229) always wanted to be a wide receiver, and for one reason in particular. But in wrapping up this spring session at WSU, the third-year sophomore defensive end is brimming with confidence about his role on D. “I’m not going to let someone take my spot right now,” he told CF.C with a smile.

EARLIER THIS MONTH the WSU coaches were busy as ever hosting recruits for unofficial visits. Cougfan subscribers just read about 4-star prospect Reggie Hughes, but there was another star out of California who was recently blown away by his Pullman experience. The 6-4, 235-pounder told CF.C that trip is still fresh in his mind, and WSU is among his leaders. Could a decision be coming soon?

PULLMAN — Spring football at Washington State ended Tuesday with a final practice that showed the same trends that have been apparent all April – senior quarterback Luke Falk will have plenty of weapons in the Air Raid’s receiving corps and Alex Grinch’s defense is going to be able to make some plays.

SPOKANE – The tone for Washington State’s spring game was set early, before even the first play from scrimmage, during WSU’s bull in the ring drill. A starting o-lineman clashed with a starting d-lineman, and a helmet went flying. Photographer James Snook was at the game shooting for Cougfan.com.

SPOKANE -- What a difference a year makes. Last spring at Washington State's Crimson and Gray game, Trey Tinsley was in Albi Stadium wearing blue jeans and a sweatshirt. The Fullerton College quarterback was watching old El Toro High battery mate Kaleb Fossum and entertaining the idea of walking on in Cougarville.

REGGIE HUGHES, a 4-star linebacker prospect out of Calabasas, Calif., who is ranked among the top 300 recruits in the nation, spent this past weekend at Washington State. It’s safe to say he came away impressed.

TO UNDERSTAND the true depth of the grin on Keith Harrington's face Saturday in Spokane following the final scrimmage of Washington State's spring season, you must revisit 2016, when the rising fourth-year junior touched the ball exactly four times -- on two rushes and two receptions -- for a grand total of 26 yards.
