Ever lose your cell phone? It can turn your world upside-down. But for Sagote (6-2, 225, 4.6) the fax machine at least was working just fine.
"I sent it in probably about 2-3 weeks ago," said Sagote of his signed LOI to Washington State. "I lost my phone, just got a new one and just got (previous messages and texts). In my conversations with Coach (Jeff) Choate, when I get up there I'll just start learning the playbook because everyone is going to be a few practices ahead of me."
SAGOTE SAID HE is scheduled to graduate in May with his AA degree, with plans to join WSU shortly thereafter.
Sagote, who comes from a 3-4 defense at CSM and played several linebackers spots, said that Choate has told him he could play either inside or outside, (WIL, MIK, SAM) at Washington State. He has three to play two for the Cougs.
"I have to take a couple more classes and then I'll be basically be done in May, and then I'll be up there at Washington State. After I get into the system, learn the playbook and get more comfortable, then they'll start putting me in spots in fall camp," said Sagote.
SAGOTE POSTED 39 tackles this past season, with 4.5 tackles for loss, two sacks and an interception while playing mainly as an outside linebacker.
As a freshman playing mainly on the inside, he logged 45 tackles, 10.5 tackles-for-loss, three sacks and one fumble recovery. Inside or outside, he said he hopes to make an immediate impact at Wazzu.
"I can't wait to get there," said Sagote.
