Cali OL plans WSU summer visit

CHECKING IN AT 6-5, 295-pounds, the recruiting attention is starting to perk for a physical hoss from Riverside, Calif. He holds an offer from Washington State and tells CF.C he'll be in Pullman later this summer for an unofficial visit. He also says the electric energy surrounding the program has him very intrigued by the Cougs. Meanwhile, his tape is chock full of pancake blocks.

Martin Luther King High offensive lineman Sean Krepsz made a name for himself dominating defensive lineman for the Wolves at left tackle in 2012. It's led to four offers this recruiting cycle from WSU, San Jose State, San Diego State and Fresno State, the last of which he picked up on Tuesday.

As for his interest in Washington State, Krepsz said there's one thing in particular that has him eyeing the Cougs.

"I just really like the direction they're going and the positivity there is around everything," Krepsz said. "It's kind of cool knowing that if you were to go to WSU, you'd be part of a group that really gets the program going. They've had their struggles over the years, but I think they'll be on the rise soon.

"It would be exciting to be a part of the new generation for Washington State football."

THE COUGAR COACHES have been in contact with Krepsz throughout the spring, with outside linebackers coach Ken Wilson running the point on his recruitment.

"I got the offer from Washington State in early April and they were my second offer," Krepsz said. "They were my first offer from the Pac-12, though, and that was exciting. I'm thankful and obviously I'm also humbled. Coach Ken Wilson recruits my area and I've talked with him a few times about the changes they're making up there. He's a good guy."

In addition to Wilson, the senior-to-be remains in contact with WSU offensive line coach Clay McGuire and added that he's spoken several times on the telephone with Cougar head man Mike Leach.

The Washington State staff are recruiting Krepsz as both a tackle and guard.

"I've spoken with Coach McGuire and he said there are some things about my style of play that stick out," Krepsz said. "He and the rest of my coaches liked my tape and how well I move on the line. I've got some nastiness and aggressiveness to my game. I can finish blocks and I like to run people over."

KREPSZ SAID has no leader at this time and all four of the schools that have offered him thus far are being considered. In addition to his four offers, Krepsz is also receiving plenty of interest from Cal, USC, Stanford, ASU, Colorado and several other schools.

"I'm planning on taking my time with my recruitment," Krepsz said. "I'd like to see Washington State in person and some other schools as well before I make any kind of decision. I'll pull the trigger when I'm ready too. In the end, I'll make the call when everything kind of clicks."

Krepsz added that he's planning to trip to Pullman in late July to check out the WSU campus and that he's also hoping to take a road trip through Texas to visit TCU, Texas Tech, Texas A&M and Texas around that time.
