"Frank Luvu committed to WSU today," Brandon Smart, the Executive Director Field House 100, tells CF.C.
Luvu is Salavea's fifth verbal commit to Washington State since joining the staff in December 2011, joining Robert Barber, Destiny Vaeao, Daniel Ekuale and Emmitt Su'a-Kalio.
Smart said having those players from American Samoa at Wazzu, as well as 15 total players of Polynesian descent on the WSU roster, made it a comfortable decision for Luvu.
Luvu checks in at 6-2, 215-pounds and projects to plays at around 225-230 at the college level. He's been a strong safety at Tafuna High but WSU likes him at 'backer.
Washington State likes that he should be able to add weight and keep his speed, Smart told CF.C earlier.
Luvu was seeing increasing interest from Iowa State, New Mexico, Northern Illinois and others.
In addition to Also of Polynesian descent on the WSU roster are another 11 Cougs -- LB Justin Sagote, NT Ioane Gauta, NT Toni Pole, LB Cyrus Coen, DE Paulo Lepua, S Taylor Taliulu, LB Tana Pritchard, LB Chester Sua, DL Darryl Paulo, DL Lyman Faoliu and RB Jeremiah Laufasa.
