"It was a lot of fun at Washington State," said Mead High prospect Danny Mattingly (6-5, 225). "I talked with Coach leach for, it must have been at least a half hour, me and my dad…We just talked about the reasons to come to Washington State, what I would be doing if I did come there. All the coaches and staff, everyone was awesome."
Mattingly doesn't want to put his hand down. And neither does WSU.
"It would be a mixture of a stand up d-end and outside linebacker, their "Buck" linebacker position," said Mattingly. "My dad thought it was pretty cool, it's a really good school."
MATTINGLY WAS LATE arriving to the junior day event because of the road conditions between Spokane and Pullman.
"I spent most of my time with Coach Leach. And I talked with the linebackers coaches. Coach (Jeff) Choate, I thought he was a cool guy, full of energy. He would be a good guy to play for. And Coach (Paul) Volero, I actually liked him a lot, he had a great personality," said Mattingly.
Although lost the basketball game, the atmosphere was striking, said Mattingly.
"Seeing all the students there. The students are crazy, it was great. My sister goes to WSU and knows a lot of people there. But the students, they're crazy there. That was a lot of fun," said Mattingly.
Mattingly plans on taking an unofficial to UW when his schedule allows in the coming months, and he plans to also go to UCLA this spring. Washington State, though, will also be getting more unofficials.
"I had a blast down at WSU, I'll probably take a lot more trips down there this year," said Mattingly."
