Abens Cajuste, who has used his redshirt, has 2-to-play-2 at the next level. He is on pace to graduate in December with his AA.
WSU is the second Pac-12 school to offer, with Arizona putting a full ride on the table in March.
He also holds offers from Florida International, Indiana, Rutgers and New Mexico.
Official school stats show Cajuste posted 14 tackles in six games as a redshirt freshman. His numbers, however, may go up this season -- particularly sacks.
"We played mainly 3-4 last year, so I played the nose, but this year we're going to be running out of a 4-3, so I'll be at the D-tackle spot and I think I'll get a lot more opportunities for sacks," Cajuste said recently. "I'm good at taking up double and even triple-teams, but I want to get quicker so I can get to the quarterback more. This offseason all I've done is work on my pass-rush and that's the area I want to improve most on."
Indiana and Rutgers are thought to have the early lead for Cajuste.
He plans on narrowing things down at the start of the season and then making his decision after he graduates with his AA.
