Ian Knight (6-2, 244) is a very fast defensive end coming off the edge. He had 14.5 tackles-for-loss this season for Butler CC, who was runner-up in the NJCCA national title game.
"They're definitely going to use me as a defensive end which is my natural position – more of a speed rusher, which is perfectly fine with me," said Knight. "I have a really great chance of coming in and playing early.
"I signed with Washington State earlier today," said Knight. "When I went up for my visit last weekend I got to spend a lot of time around the guys and coach (Chris) Ball. And it all just clicked."
Knight according to the official NJCAA stats was third on the team with 56 tackles (34 solo) in 2010, with 14.5 tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks, 2 pass break ups, 4 QB hurries and a forced fumble. Knight was named honorable mention All-Jayhawk Conference this past season.
Knight, originally from Wichita Heights, Kan., has three to play two for WSU. He will enroll in January and go through spring ball in Pullman. He chose WSU over Ohio, Kansas, Rutgers, Purdue and others.
I know a lot of schools came in late but I had already had this visit to Washington State scheduled for a really long time and I was committed to sticking with them. I just want to give a big thanks out to Butler County Community College for doing so much to help you, and a big thanks to coach Wulff, coach Ball and coach (Malik) Robertson. I'm really looking forward to playing for them this upcoming year.
