What's this, a TE interested in the Cougs?

SEATTLE - Mike Leach's Air Raid offense isn't known for using a tight end, but all might not be as it appears. WSU is after a highly touted three-star tight end prospect from a prep powerhouse. He told CF.C at the Barton Football Battle in Seattle on Sunday that he remains in close contact with the WSU staff -- and there's one thing in particular that sticks out to him about Washington State.

Jesuit High tight end Henry Mondeaux, who was offered by the Cougs last week, has seen his recruitment take off. The 6-4, 224-pounder has picked up offers from Washington State, UW, Oregon, Oregon State, ASU, Nebraska and others.

At the Battle in Seattle at Foster High (near Southcenter) he showcased exactly why college recruiters like him.

MONDEAUX, A VERY fluid athlete, displayed quick speed off the line and good hands throughout the tournament with his Oregon Elite team.

Mondeaux also ran crisp routes and caught pretty much any pass that was thrown in his direction, easily shielding his body from defenders.

Mondeaux says he doesn't have a leader and won't start to narrow things down until later this summer.

BUT A tight end?

For the Cougs?

In the Air Raid?

In a video interview Sunday with CF.C, the three-star prospect, who is also getting looked at as a defensive end by some college programs, said he's interested in Washington State -- and that there's a particular reason for that.
