O-lineman no longer a future Cougar

A 6-6, 305-POUND offensive lineman who verbally committed to Washington State in August no longer has a scholarship offer from the Cougars following an off-the-field incident, multiple independent sources with knowledge of the situation have told Cougfan.com over the last week.

Jordan Rose, a two-star prospect out of Freeman High, a Class 1A school just outside Spokane, won't be part of Mike Leach's 2014 signing class, according to the sources, all of whom asked not to be identified for this story. None of the sources offered clear details on what the off-the-field incident entailed, just that it prompted the WSU coaching staff to rethink its offer.

However, two sources said, the door is believed to have been left open for Rose to work his way back into good graces but as an invited walk on.

Calls to Rose were not returned as of press time.

"I'm not going to comment on that right now," Freeman coach Jim Wood said when reached by CF.C's Braulio Perez.

Rose earned a WSU offer following an excellent performance at Washington State's youth camp this past summer. He had an offer from Idaho and interest from Arizona State and Cal at the time of his verbal commitment.

Last month, the Seattle Times picked him to its preseason all-classifications all-state team. He was an all-league selection last season at offensive tackle and defensive tackle.

With Rose off the board, there are 13 known verbals in Leach's 2014 class -- 1 QB, 3 WRs, 2 OL, 1 DL, 3 LBs, 2 CBs, 1 K. The WSU verbal commit list can be found HERE.
