Three-star OL with WSU offer talks Cougs

RATED THREE STARS and the 18th best offensive guard prospect in the nation, a Pomona, Calif. hoss has seen the offers roll in this spring. Seven of those schollies have come from the Pac-12, including one from Washington State. CF.C caught up with the 6-4, 305-pounder to talk recruiting, visits and more.

When CF.C first spoke with Diamond Ranch High o-lineman Kammy Delp in early April, he had two offers. Since then, Delp has added 12 more for a total of 14. He's been in close contact with the WSU staff since the Cougs offered him around the end of March.

"I talk with Coach Ken Wilson quite a bit and he keeps me updated about the improvements they're making up there at Washington State," Delp said. "Another coach I've been in contact with is Joe Salave'a. He's Polynesian and he came down to see me during the spring.

"The Inland Empire isn't Coach Salave'a's recruiting area, but he's still made the effort... We talk a lot about family and what it means to be Samoan. We also talked a lot of different football stuff."

DELP, WHO RECENTLY participated in The Opening, was expected to release his top five a couple of weeks ago but he's decided to hold off on that. Delp added that he'll probably wait until the middle of his senior season to trim his list. He said ASU and UW are sticking out "a little bit."

"I've been talking with their coaching staffs quite a bit," he said.

As for Washington State?

"They're high up there as well, just like some of the other schools who are recruiting me," Delp said. "I think I like WSU, though, because I know a lot of people who have gone up there in the last few years. Justin Sagote (linebacker) just got up there and Marcus Mason (junior running back) is a friend of mine.

"When I was a freshman and Marcus was a senior, he kind of knew my recruiting would blow up and since I got that offer from Wazzu, he's been in contact with me. He's 'recruiting' me quite a bit."

Another guy in Delp's ear has been future Cougar and DL commit Marcus Griffin out of Bellevue. The two hung out together in Beaverton at The Opening, which featured some of the top 2014 prospects in the country.

"He kept telling me how great the program is and how excited he is for the future," Delp said. "We talked several times and he was always talking up the Cougs."

DELP HOLDS OFFERS, in addition to WSU, from from Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, Colorado, Nevada, Oregon State, Utah, Washington and others. He said his focus is on his upcoming senior season, but he is also trying to schedule some official visits.

He plans on taking a trip to Pullman, but said he might not use one of his officials.

"I have family that lives up in Washington, so it would be easy for us to drive to the UW and WSU campus," Delp said. "I'm still kind of figuring everything out, though, but if I were to do that, it would save me a couple of my official visits and I could check out other schools."

Delp added that he is planning on taking his time with his recruitment and will make his final decision right around Signing Day the first week in February. He's gotten much of his prep acclaim for his work on defense but projects at offensive guard at the next level.
