WULFF, WSU WIN PAC10 RECRUITING BATTLE ROYALE

PAUL WULFF AND HIS STAFF continued their 2011 recruiting run on Sunday – the second verbal commitment of the day came in the form of a sought DE/DT with Pac-10 offers from USC, UCLA, Washington, Stanford, Arizona State and Oregon State. His stock has soared this recruiting cycle, such are his skills and potential in the eyes of college programs. As he tells CF.C, he'll be wearing crimson in '11.

Stephan Nembot (6-7, 270) is a Coug.

"I just felt Washington State was the right place for me," said Nembot. "It was everything about it. The people, the reception I had there, I didn't have in other places. They are like family, not just a football team."

Nembot is originally from Cameroon, and first started playing the sport of football only a year ago. He's certainly been making up for lost time ever since.

"His best football is still ahead of him," said Scout.com West Recruiting Manager Brandon Huffman. "And if he keeps learning at the pace he's picked up the game in just over the year he's played it, the sky is the limit."

Nembot could be a defensive end, defensive tackle or offensive tackle at the next level given his athleticism and skills set, but Washington State likes him on defense, either on the outside or on the interior. He is currently classified by Scout.com as an o-tackle, and ranks three stars.

He has absolutely huge hands, one of the reasons Huffman projected him as an offensive tackle.

"He's a basketball player so he's got the athleticism. He's a nice, long athlete," said Huffman.

In addition to Washington State, his Scout.com page lists offers from Arizona State, Oregon State, Stanford, UCLA, USC and Washington.

NOTABLE NOTE:
Washington State also landed Dominique Williams, a 6-4 wide receiver out of Pomona, Calif., see the front page of CF.C for more.
