Sale, a 6-3, 300-pound offensive lineman, said he enjoyed his official visit to Pullman. "It was fun, I liked it a lot because all the coaches came to pick us up at the airport and it made me feel at home," said Sale. "It could be my home for next two years, my running back (WSU verbal commit Theron West) was there with me and I want to stick together."
Sale was sold on the town as well as the family culture around the program.
"The team felt good because it is a family," said Sale. "The new staff got to me because I could relate to them easily. I told them I was really liking it but I am taking one more trip to make sure WSU is the right place."
Sale's other trip will be to Arizona State, a program that he has been interested in for some time.
"Those are my two, I have broken it down," said Sale. "This week or next week I will visit ASU. If I still feel the same way I will call coach Simmons and commit."
The Washington State coaching staff plans on playing Sale at guard and have told him he can compete for a spot right away.
"That's what really got me too," said Sale. "Also there were seven other guys from LA. We all bonded real well, we clicked with all the other guys. I don't really see snow, which got us too. It is small town feel and everywhere you go everything is WSU."
Sale, from Los Alamitos, was recruited out of high school by several Pac-12 schools, but was unable to qualify and headed to LA Harbor College a year ago, where he immediately earned all-conference recognition. He had initially verablled to ASU in this recruiting cycle but reopened his search with the Devils' coaching change.
