Bruggman himself is helping fuel the crimson fire. Three-star offensive lineman Poasi Moala of Moreno Valley, Calif., told Annabel Stephan of FoxSportsNext.com yesterday that Bruggman has been making the case to him for WSU.
"I've been talking to them a lot lately. Tyler Bruggman, the quarterback that committed there, is trying to convince me to go there. He was just telling me how he's heard a lot about me and that he wants Demorea Stringfellow and I to hop on board with him and be a Cougar. I feel pretty good about WSU," Moala said.
Stringfellow, by the way, is a receiver. Two of the eight prospects that have verbally committed to the Cougs this month also are receivers: Demarcus Ayers of Lancaster, Texas, and River Cracraft of Santa Margarita, Calif. Their two pledges would suggest that the Stringfellow, Seattle's Tatum Taylor and others may need to act fast if they're going to join the Air Raid.
By our count, the Cougars are nearly full at receiver for the 2013 class.
CF.C right now projects WSU taking a 2013 class of 21. Looking at the current depth chart and then factoring the wideouts arriving in the 2012 class, that suggests room for no more than three receivers in the this next class.
BUT BACK TO THE JUNE NUMBERS. As bountiful as this month has been to WSU, it has a long way to go to become the most prolific month at WSU since 2002. The single-most plentiful month on record is January 2008, when brand new head coach Paul Wulff secured pledges from 18 recruits. Three of them figure to play prominent roles for the Cougs this season: fifth-year seniors Andrei Lintz, Anthony Laurenzi and Tyree Toomer.
Here's how the other six-most impressive single-month hauls break down:
