"For me, I like the cold weather. I'm really looking forward to it," said Johnny Stuart out of Westlake Village, Calif, about 45 minutes out of Los Angeles.
Stuart could play at either d-end or tight end at the next level. The Cougs like him at defensive end.
"I like sacking the quarterback. I just want to see how it looks out there, how it feels, how the coaches treat the players, how well I would fit in at Washington State," said Stuart.
Complete stats were unavailable at press time but Stuart appears to be on his way to earning first team all-league honors for the second straight year.
"Washington State said they liked how I control the line, that I keep running backs from getting to the outside of me and because I use my hands well. I have some pass rushing moves," said Stuart.
HE'S BUILT A solid relationship with area recruiter Chris Tormey, and he likes what he sees going on at WSU.
"I know they're rebuilding, I know their team is getting better every year," said Stuart. "And they've been really close in most games, they played UCLA well, a lot of teams well. Their coaching staff is doing a good job, and in a year or two, they could be great."
Stuart took an official to Colorado in September. He will probably take officials to Colorado State and Fresno State a couple weeks after his season ends. Westlake High is 9-0 and the top-ranked team in the Southern Section Northern Division with one more game in their regular season before the playoffs begin.
