Paulo Lepua (6-2, 255) out of Harbor City, Calif. is up to six Pac-12 offers, including one from WSU.
"It's a good school, a good program, one of the coaches there was recruiting me when he was at Arizona (Joe Salave'a) I've known him a little bit since I was a sophomore," said Lepua, who has been turning more and more heads at Narbonne High this season.
LEPUA SAID he has not yet set in stone any official visit dates, says he probably won't make his decision until right around Signing Day and has no leader. He said schools, including Washington State, love his motor.
"They like that I just keep going," said Lepua.
Scout.com's Biggins says Lepua is extremely quick, strong, athletic and dominates up front -- and his closing speed is what really stands out. Brandon Huffman adds that he "has a non-stop motor, quick hands and plays with good leverage."
LEPUA IS RATED three stars and the No. 47 prep DE prospect in the land by Scout.com. He said all schools including WSU are talking to him about defensive end.
Scout.com says he has a frame that could easily accommodate more mass – it's not hard at all to project him as a 270-280 pound college d-end in a 3-4.
Lepua's family came to the US nine years ago from Samoa and Lepua could add to the Cougs' growing roster of Polynesian players.
"Polynesians make such great athletes because we are from a line of warriors," Lepua told Poly Wide Sports this summer.
