At least as far as elite talent goes.
And last year was considered a down year.
Just two Evergreen State players make Scout's top 300 list --- Bellevue S Budda Baker at No. 42 and Tacoma OL Kaleb McGary at No. 239.
Both have offers from the Cougs though Baker trimmed his list recently and WSU wasn't in his thinking. McGary has been in close contact with WSU ever since he attended a junior day event in Pullman in February.
Last year, the state of Washington also produced only two amongst Scout's Top 300 – Skyline's Max Browne and Bellevue's Myles Jack.
The year before, five in-state players were on Scout.com's top 300 --- Josh Garnett, Zach Banner, Jeff Lindquist, Keivarae Russell and Cedric Dozier.
Among the recruits on this year's top 300, OLB Marquis Ware out of Los Angeles, Alex Van Dyke from Elk Grove, Calif., OT Tyus Barrett from Dallas, RB Demario Richard out of Palmdale, Calif., C Connor Mayes from Van Alstyne, Texas, MLB Michael Lazarus from Berkeley, Calif. are among those who list WSU offers.
WSU's coaches are currently out on the road for the May Evaluation period. It runs from April 15 - May 31, with schools using four of the available six weeks, excluding Memorial Day and Sundays, to visit high schools and evaluate prep prospects.
