Ten commits remain from the 19 on board when Mike Leach became the head coach at Washington State. Leach has re-filled those slots plus three more with 3 linebackers, 1 safety, 4 WRs, 1 K, 1 RB, 1 OG and 1 DT. Three of them, Ioane Gauta, Niu Sale and Mike Bowlin, are from the JC ranks.
With the 12 new commits under Leach, Washington State has 22 known commitments in the fold.
*Scout lists Keith Ewing as a d-end but he'll be coming to WSU as a linebacker.
Four star CB Cedric Dozier out of Lakes High, a report on a California fan site said Tuesday, is sticking with his commitment to Cal. But the Tacoma News Tribune and Seattle Tims reported Dozier was to have an in-home with Mike Leach on Tuesday night, implying things weren't settled just yet. Dozier has been rethinking his Cal pledge in the wake of the coaching staff changes in Berkeley and officially tripped to WSU this past weekend.
It looks to be a two-horse Pac-12 race for Kenny Lawler between Washington State and Oregon State…maybe. Cal is said to be trying to get Lawler to visit this last weekend and could be a darkhorse candidate according to the internet scuttlebutt out there. Oklahoma State is out of the running after recently landing two receivers according to Lawler's parents twitter page.
Teko Powell, who visited last week, told CF.C that he enjoyed everything about his visit to Washington State but he sees himself sticking with his commitment to Illinois. Powell also said he plans on taking an official visit to West Virginia this weekend.
Jaydon Mickens is scheduled to visit WSU on the final recruiting weekend or the 2012 class before Signing Day. Mickens, a 4-star receiver out of Dorsey High, is down to four – Washington State, Washington, Okie State and Oregon though an official trip to Eugene was cancelled last week.
Jeremiah Allison, the 3-star linebacker out of Dorsey, has recruiting on the back burner at the moment with a family member in the hospital. Washington State, UCLA, Duke and Nevada are the quartet he's looking at most.
Alphonso Marsh said Washington State, Washington and Utah are all tied with one week to go. Washington State is scheduled to make an in-home today with Marsh and family.
Raymond Ford and Stephen Buckley are among others who remain in the Cougar orbit, as well as a junior college DT and OL, plus a few others, all of whom CF.C is continuing to track down.
