Cougfan.com has been unable to reach linebacker Justin Sagote by phone but a WSU source says he'll arrive on campus next week when voluntary workouts resume after a break this week.
Sagote didn't arrive in Pullman last week due to junior college paperwork working its way through the system but that has since been resolved.
Robert Lewis has also been difficult to reach but another source with direct knowledge of the situation says that, as expected, Lewis will grayshirt.
Lewis has put on weight since last fall (about 12 pounds) but he's still only about 152 pounds – he's expected to use the coming months to climb out of the welterweight class by the time he arrives at WSU in January.
Note: CF.C is also attempting to track down Jacob Tuivaiave for news on his status. It is unclear at present if he is also grayshirting
The other non-arrivals this summer, as previously reported, are three offensive linemen -- Sam Jones, Alex Mitchell and B.J. Salmonson.
Jones, a signing-day surprise out of Pima CC back in February, failed to qualify in time. Mitchell is going the junior college route after telling CF.C he didn't take the right classes this past term in order to meet qualification standards. Salmonson (6-5, 265) will arrive in January along with Lewis – Salmonson is also expected to use the coming months to bulk up.
Despite the trio not making it to Pullman, WSU still brought in five offensive linemen this class -- Eduardo Middleton, Sam Flor, Pierson Villarrubia and Niu Sale arrived in recent days, joining Denzell Dotson, who enrolled in January after graduating early from high school.
Dotson was one of four January arrivals to WSU, along with K Mike Bowlin, WR Rahmel Dockery and RB Teondray Caldwell.
NOTE: After going crimson yesterday, the last member of the 2012 class will arrive just prior to fall camp. Cornerback Brandon Bagley (5-10, 165, 4.40) from College of the Sequoias tells CF.C he'll be arriving at Wazzu on Aug. 1 -- with 4-to-play-3.
A few short years ago, an entire incoming recruiting class, not just one player, would arrive a few days before fall camp opens in August. Now, virtually the entire group of new Cougs comes to Washington State in mid-June, starts classes, joins the team and takes part in voluntary summer workouts. How things have changed...
