BREAKING: Oh Canada! Cougs land dynamic RB

HE WAS UNDER the radar when he came to Washington State's camp earlier this month – and Canadian players have a harder time winning schools over in the recruiting wars. But his blend of power and size struck a chord and turned some heads in Pullman. Not long after that, he went crimson.

The primary concern in recruiting Canadian players is that they are seen as playing against lesser competition. Terrell Davis (6-0, 215, 4.6) out of Victoria's Mt. Douglas Secondary, however, earned his offer with his performance at WSU's summer youth camp.

He's already pretty well put together headed into his senior season – with 215 pounds spread across a 6-foot frame.

He's a back that can run both inside and outside, and said the WSU coaches also complimented him on his hands coming out of the backfield. He doesn't have blazing top-end speed, but while out on the Palouse he was dynamic with the ball in his hands.

"I committed to Washington State…They liked my size and speed, they said they really liked how I can run guys over or run around them," said Davis.

Davis was seeing recruiting interest from Oregon, Oregon State, Washington, Arkansas, Idaho and others. He was named a BC AAA all-star after last season, his third straight with over 1,000 yards rushing.

"I just sat down with my family and we talked about how Washington state would be the best fit for me. Definitely, the coaches were a big part of my decision. And then the campus had a great college town atmosphere that I really liked," said Davis.

Davis is the sixth known verbal commitment in the 2012 class, joining S Taylor Taliulu, QB Austin Apodaca, MLB Jordan Pulu, S David Bucannon and WR Dalen Jones. The Cougs are projected to take 18-20 in the 2012 class when Signing Day arrives in February.
