ESPN reported on Wednesday morning that Ian Knight, a junior college linebacker from Butler CC in Kansas had signed with Washington State, but the school in their official release this evening made no mention of Knight. Stay tuned, the junior college signing period for mid-year transfers runs from Dec. 15 - Jan. 15.
Rico Forbes, who Washington State lists at 6-4, 260 pounds, has spent the past two seasons at Navarro College in Corsicana, Texas. He verbally committed to WSU back in September. A native of the Bahamas, Forbes is close friends with Devard Darling. He prepped at St. Pius High School in Houston, Texas, and originally signed with Baylor before attending Navarro.
"We are very excited to have Rico joining our program," said Paul Wulff in the release. "He is a very athletic, bright young man who is going to have the opportunity to get right into the mix this spring. He brings a great deal of size and athletic ability to our offensive front and has a great upside."
Taylor Meighen, a 6-3, 285-pound center from Beaumont, Texas, can also play guard for Washington State. Out of Kilgore College in Texas, about two hours outside of Dallas, Meighen this past season was named first-team SWJCFC all conference. He was a full qualifier coming out of Kelly High.
"Taylor is going to bring excellent toughness and great leadership qualities to our team," said Wulff. "He has played all five positions on the offensive line though we envision him playing guard and center. He is going to get a lot of quality time this spring."
