COMMIT: New Leach verbal from Miami wraps up

SAY THIS ABOUT the Cougs' newest verbal commitment – he knows how to tackle. Of his 88 tackles headed into the state title game, 81 of them were solo.

Feddie Davey (5-11, 190) helped lead Norland High to a state title this past weekend. He hopes to capture more of the same success at Washington State next year.

"I know the coaches and my coaches know the coaches, they thought it would be a nice fit for me and to have a chance to play early there," said Davey.

Davey will also become a father in January but said the distance from Miami to Pullman wasn't a factor.

"I'm not concerned at all with that. I'm very moveable about the field, too, I can play a lot of positions, I play very aggressive and I can play special teams," said Davey.

DAVEY FIGURES to get his first look at safety at Washington State though he has good enough hip turn to also play corner.

Davey, says the Miami Herald, doesn't have blazing speed or imposing size. But he just made plays, and was considered the glue on Norland High defense that won the Class 5A state championship game this past week. He held offers from WSU, Florida Atlantic, Southern, Howard, North Carolina Central, and Northern Colorado.

He plans to trip to WSU on Jan. 20, but said he still planned on officially visiting FAU and Southern as well.

"Right now, I'm taking all my visits. They give you five and I'd like to take them all," said Davey.

As for his ability to wrap up, with 80-some solo tackles this season, Davey is succinct.

"I play in the box (at Norland) so it shouldn't be that hard to tackle," he said.
