Bruggman's position coach will be Mike Leach but after a game with Cal where the Cougs left a lot of opportunities on the table, the message was the same from the entire WSU staff.
"I talked to all the coaches really, and all the coaches stressed that they are just a few plays away," said Bruggman. "That they just need (us) to come in and help."
Bruggman, out of Phoenix's Brophy College Prep, came to Pullman with his good friend Jake Roh, a receiver out Scottsdale's Chaparral High.
"I think he liked it a lot… Hopefully we can make him a Coug," said Bruggman.
BRUGGMAN SAID THE loss didn't put a damper on the weekend for him and the other recruits in attendance.
"It was a great, great trip," said Bruggman. "I just had a really good time overall.. I spent a good amount of time with the other recruits... it was really the whole thing that stood out -- the press box and stadium looks great, it definitely didn't look like this in the spring.
"I got to see a lot more of the campus of this time. All the players seem like real good guys, and all the freshmen are ready to win."
BRUGGMAN WAS HOSTED by Brett Bartolone, who had a layout touchdown grab in the game.
‘He's a heckuva player. I'm looking forward to playing with him in the coming years," said Bruggman.
BRUGGMAN, RANKED 4 STARS and the No. 28 quarterback prospect in the nation was unofficially 13-for-21 for 209 yards and 4 TDs on Friday night before coming out to WSU this weekend.
On the season, he is 91-for-184 for 1,454 yards with 15TDs against six interceptions.
Future Coug Bruggman has ‘great, great trip'
