Cougs' 4-star QB commit keeping busy

THINGS HAVE CALMED down for future Cougar Tyler Bruggman (6-2, 202) since the 4-star QB from Arizona made his verbal pledge to Washington State. But that doesn't mean he hasn't been keeping busy.

Summer passing leagues, 7on7 tournaments – all of that pretty much came to a close at the end of June for Phoenix's Bruggman. But he's found something else to occupy his time.


"We get July off for the most part, and I've been in contact with a lot of recruits since I committed," said Bruggman, rated the No. 26 QB prospect in the nation and the No. 1 QB recruit in the state of Arizona.

BRUGGMAN HAS ALSO been keeping in touch with his future Washington State position and head coach Mike Leach, plus Eric Morris and Clay McGuire.

"I probably talk to them once a week. I talked with Coach Leach last week… we talk about football, how the summer (at WSU) is going. And I've also talked quite a bit with Coach Morris and then with Coach McGuire on Facebook a little bit, too," said Bruggman.

Bruggman, who was down in San Diego on a family outing on Tuesday, said his fall camp at Brophy College Prep gets underway in a couple weeks.

Other schools who were charging hard a month ago after the sought QB prospect have left him alone since he verballed to Wazzu, Bruggman said.

"I really haven't heard from any of the schools after I talked to them and told them where I was going," said Bruggman.

BRUGGMAN CHOSE Washington State over more than a dozen other scholarship offers, including rides from ASU, UCLA, Arizona, Arkansas, BYU, Michigan State and Purdue.

As a junior, he completed 156 of 259 passes (60.2 percent) for 2,497 yards and 37 TDs. Named the Arizona Republic Phoenix Metro Player of the Year in 2011, as well as to several first team All-State squads, he threw only two interceptions all season.
