Is 3-star CB with WSU offer on the verge?

THREE-STAR CORNERBACK Denzel Fisher loves WSU – that becomes apparent shortly into a conversation with the 6-2, 170-pounder out of Compton, Calif. With eight offers in hand including one from the Cougars, Fisher has choices aplenty. But it's the Cougs who more and more are standing out. Indeed, the 6-2, 170-pounder says he recently almost pulled the trigger and committed to Wazzu... again.

"Washington State is on me hard and I'm loving it," Fisher said. "But I'm feeling it all out, taking it slow."

But taking it slow for Fisher, who preps at Centennial High, is a tougher task than you might think. He said the Cougs, far and away, are sending him the most letters and recruiting love his way, and it's made putting off his decision harder and harder.

"I was close to committing but had to rethink," Fisher said. "I have to see the school before I make a decision."

This, said Fischer, marks the second or third time Fisher he has had to pull back on the reins on committing to WSU.

The Washington State coaches have made it a point to get him on campus as soon as he's able to visit and allow him to take in all that is Cougar football.

Fisher, ranked nationally as a Top 50 cornerback prospect, will be taking his official visit to Pullman the weekend of September 20 to watch the Cougs take on Idaho in front of what many expect to be a packed house on Homecoming.

BUT THE DECISION will not be ultimately be all about football.

"I just want to make sure it's a right fit for me, the campus and all," he said. "I need to check out the education system as well."

Fisher plans to get his degree in kinesiology, a good fit for Washington State where athletic training, physical therapy and general kinesiology are all very strong fields of study.

Fisher also has crimson ties.

His godbrother Daquawn Brown will be lacing em' up for the Cougs this fall at cornerback, and has long been in his ear about coming to the Palouse and tag-teaming the secondary for years to come.

Fisher tending to that secondary with Brown is an intriguing thought…

"Fisher is a long cornerback, at about 6-2, and still pretty lean," said National Recruiting Analyst Brandon Huffman. "(Fisher has) long arms that get in on passes. He's also got very good top-end speed to stay with the receivers and he closes quick breaks on the ball really well."

From the Pac-12, Fisher also holds an offer from Utah and plans on officially visiting Salt Lake City this fall, he said.

Fisher also said before his final decision is made, he'll sit down with his parents and they'll decide as a family what the best college option is for him.
