Who's on 2014 kicking/punting radar for Cougs

WASHINGTON STATE HAS said they may use two scholarship spots this class for a kicker and punter. That would be unprecedented at Washington State and shows the ever-growing importance of special teams in the college game. Who figures to be on the radar?

California kicking guru Chris Sailer tells CF.C Washington State is looking at a number of 2014 kicking prospects from all over the country.

Among them is Mick Ellis (5-9, 182) out of Lovejoy High in Lucas, Texas just north of Dallas.

Ellis was named first team All-state, all-district and all-county after a junior season where he went 13-17 on field goals and had 41 touchbacks.

An intriguing prospect is J.K. Scott out of Mullen High in Colorado. He's tall, standing 6-4, 185.

His best position at the next level may be as a punter, but he also has a strong kicking leg.

Others in the mix include Gary Wunderlich out of Memphis, Tennessee, (offers from Virginia, Texas A&M), Michael Knoll from Akron, Ohio (a consistent lefty) and James Sherman from Alabama.
