BREAKING: Three-star hoss commits to WSU

FOLLOWING HIS OFFICIAL to Washington State this weekend, offensive lineman Sean Krepsz said he wanted to take some time to think about how he felt about the Cougar program post visit. On Tuesday evening, the Riverside, Calif. product decided that he saw everything he needed to see while out on the Palouse and told CF.C he will don a WSU uniform next season.

"Yes I committed to Washington State," Krepsz said. "It feels pretty relieving right now. It's nice getting it off of my chest. I've always liked everything about Washington State. The fact that they were one of my first offers was pretty big for me too. I talked to them week in and week out, and we developed a good relationship."

Sean Krepsz junior highlights:

Krepsz added that the opportunity to play for head man Mike Leach was something he didn't want to turn down.

"He's done a lot of great things with programs and I like how he and his staff build little dynasties. That's what he did at Texas Tech and I think we can do that here (WSU). He's known for staying at programs for a long time and I like to think that this staff who recruited me will coach me for the next five years.

"I called Coach Clay McGuire tonight and then he put me on the phone with Coach Leach. They were both really excited and welcomed me to the family. They said they couldn't wait to get me into a Cougar uniform."

The Martin Luther King High School senior becomes the 13th known commit to Washington State and the third offensive tackle. Krepsz (6-5, 295-pounds) joins Jordan Rose and Braden Eggert as edge lineman who have given their verbals to the Cougs.

Following his official visit, Krepsz said he wanted to take some before making a decision, but said after further discussion with his parents, he knew WSU was in his heart.

"My parents were on board with it and it just felt right," he said. "The only struggle with my decision was that it's a little farther away from home from the other schools recruiting me. We addressed that though and realized that whether I'm an hour away or 12 hours away by car, it's still going to be hard to see them because I'll be so busy, especially during the season."

Krepsz, rated three-stars and the 98th best OT in the land by Scout.com, chose WSU over offers from Fresno State, Colorado State, Utah State, San Diego State and San Jose State.

"My commitment is solid to Washington State right now," Krepsz said. "There are some schools who might make me think a little bit, but it would be really tough for me to change my mind."

Krepsz added a special message for WSU fans.

"Keep believing and be ready for next year and the years to come," Krepsz said. "It's going to be fun at Washington State."
