Roof, from East Valley High, made his commitment to Coach Bill Doba and the Cougars on Monday. Andy chose the Cougars over the Oregon Ducks.
"The bottom line is that it felt like home," Roof told TheInsiders.com Tuesday. "At Washington State, it's a great campus and they have a
great coaching staff. And school is only 40 miles from family in Clarkston and 70 miles from my home in Spokane. It was a perfect fit."
Roof was torn between the Cougs and Ducks. "It was a tough decision for me," he said. "If I didn't want to stay close to home, I would have
gone to Oregon. The coaches at Oregon are great, but the coaches at Wazzu are as good or better. And they are just great people too. They made it feel just like family."
Roof made his verbal commitment to Coach Doba during Washington State's team camp. "He just gave me a big hug and said 'Welcome to the family'," Andy said. "Washington State is where I want to be."
Roof is the third early verbal for WSU's 2004 recruiting class. Besides Hamill, quarterback Gary Rogers also has cast his lot with the Cougars.
