Three-star hoss will finally get to see WSU

OFFENSIVE LINEMAN Sean Krepsz has had Washington State at the top of his list for quite some time. But the 6-5, 295-pounder has yet to see in person what WSU is all about. This weekend, when the Cougs take on Idaho in a Homecoming matchup, the three-star prospect will get the chance to do just that.

It's been a long time coming for Krepsz, but after a long summer of trying to work out the details, he'll arrive on the Palouse Saturday.

"I just can't wait to get up there and check out the campus," Krepsz told CF.C. "I know I've said it to you before, but they're my number one choice right now and I've been wanting to see the school and see what the campus life is like."

THE BIG HOSS holds offers from WSU, Colorado State, Fresno State, San Diego State, Utah State and a few others, but has long said the Cougs are his leader.

His relationship with the coaches, coupled with the rise of the program, he said, is why. And the win over Southern Cal added more grist to the mix.

"Right now, I like everything they have to offer," Krepsz said. "They don't have much depth on the offensive line and if I were to go up there, I know I'd be competing against guys right around my age.

"I like talking to the staff and where things are going. I saw that win against USC and you can tell that Washington State is headed in the right direction."

Krepsz added that he speaks with area recruiter Ken Wilson and offensive line coach Clay McGuire frequently.

"They're looking for guys to come in and compete and I know they want me to be a Cougar," Krepsz said. "I'm looking forward to this visit to speak with the coaches and see what everything and everyone is like. I want to see if Pullman is a place I could see myself living for the next four years."

Krepsz added he's also had the opportunity to speak with head man Mike Leach.

"Coach Leach is known for more long term coaching rather than skipping around," Krepsz said. "I like that a lot because I know that if I go there, he'll be my coach for my time playing."

SO WHAT IS Krepsz hoping to see during his first official visit?

"I'm just looking for kind of a college town feel," he said. "I like the idea of an entire town shutting down for a football game. The staff has sent me a bunch of photos too of the new dorms and new facilities that are being constructed. They both look pretty sweet and I think it will be cool to take that all in."

Krepsz said he had no other official visits planned, but is considering taking trips to Fresno State and Colorado State. He added that he has already taken unofficial visits to San Diego State and San Jose State.

The Riverside, Calif. product is rated three stars by and the 98th best prep offensive tackle prospect in the country.
