IT'S BEEN A busy start to the May evaluation period for the Washington State coaches and there are no signs of things slowing down. Out on the 2014 recruiting trail, the Cougs extended several offers recently and are paying visits to even more prospects' high school coaches. One of the latest crimson targets hails from an area the Cougs spot recruit - SEC country. Here's our latest roundup.

The latest known high school junior to pick up an offer from Washington State was Louisiana product Terrance Alexander.

Washington State doesn't generally dip into Louisiana a whole lot but David Yost, who will mainly recruit SoCal and Arizona for the Cougs, built ties to the region during his 12-year tenure at Missouri.

The 5-10, 178-pound Alexander, out of River Ridge High, is a three star prospect who holds nearly 20 offers.

"Washington State has been talking to me for a week," Alexander told's Mike Coppage on Thursday. "They basically said I can go play early, and that it's a small town, a football town, where the players are like celebrities."

Alexander holds full rides from Arizona, Arizona State, Arkansas, Mississippi, Mississippi State, Nebraska and several others in addition to Washington State. He's rated the 68th best CB in the land by

• Another CB who recently picked up an offer from Washington State this week is Corona, Calif. athlete John Plattenburg. The 5-11, 187-pounder is also rated three stars by and also holds double-digit offers. This includes Arizona State, Boise State, California, Nevada, Utah, Washington and several others. CF.C has a call in for Plattenburg.

• Plattenburg's prep teammate at Centennial High, Tre Watson, also picked up an offer from Washington State. The power running back checks in at 5-10, 180 pounds and could also play cornerback or safety at the next level. As a junior in 2012, Watson carried the ball 163 times for 1,483 yards and 22 touchdowns. He added two more receiving touchdowns. In addition to WSU, Watson holds offers from BYU, Nevada and Utah.

• San Marcos, Calif. linebacker and BYU commit Fred Warner also landed a scholie offer from the Cougs this week. The 6-3, 210-pounder racked up 30 tackles, four sacks and an interception in 2012 for Mission Hills High. The three-star prospect committed to BYU back in early April and is LDS.

Kammy Delp, a 6-4, 305-pounds Diamond Ranch High lineman, has seen his college recruitment pick up over the last few weeks. Wazzu offered him in mid-April and the two sides remain in constant contact, said Delp. WSU area recruiter Ken Wilson stopped by Diamond Ranch on Monday. Next Thursday, Wilson will be back and this time he will bring defensive line coach Joe Salave'a, Delp said.

• We had a story yesterday on Denzel Fisher and it's clear there's a strong mutual interest between the Cougar coaches and the three-star cornerback. After the story was published, Fisher let CF.C know yesterday evening that defensive coordinator Mike Breske and wide receivers coach Dennis Simmons were by his prep school on Thursday. Here's the story we had on Fisher:

• The Washington State coaches also recently offered three-star safety Jahshawn Johnson. The Ennis, Texas product told CF.C on Thursday that he is scheduled to take an unofficial visit to Washington on June 27 and he is currently trying to set up a separate trip to Pullman for that weekend. Johnson, ranked three stars by, totaled 72 tackles, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and nine passes defenses in 2012.

• Another prospect Cougar fans might want to keep their eyes on is 6-4, 220-pound defensive end Charles Wright. The Irvine, Calif. prospect, who doesn't hold a Cougar offer yet, said that WSU assistant David Yost was by on Thursday afternoon to talk with his prep coaches.

"Coach Yost said I was extremely explosive and I looked good on my film," Wright said. "He likes that I'm tall and lean. He stayed for a while and said he's going to come down again to see me during spring ball."

Wright currently holds an offer from San Jose State and has been receiving increasing interest from WSU, Miami, Boise State and Fresno State.
