Intriguing o-lineman talks WSU official visit

IS IT STILL possible in this day and age to find off-the-radar Pac-12 level recruits so close to Signing Day? Absolutely, as evidenced by an o-lineman the Cougs had in this weekend absent from many recruiting site databases. He's big, athletic and has very long arms – just what Mike Leach likes in his wide-split, Air Raid offense. Cougfan.com talked to him about his WSU visit and more..

Brandon Evers (6-7, 290) out of Enterprise High in Redding, Calif. got lots of quality face time with o-line coach Clay McGuire over the weekend in Pullman.

"It went great," said Evers. "I hung out with a bunch of their players and I met a lot with Coach McGuire – I love how Coach McGuire coaches his boys. It's a program I can really see myself being part off."

EVERS SAID he planned on talking things over with his parents in the coming days, and a decision could come sometime this month or it could go on into the New Year. He has two offers, from Washington State and SDSU and Washington and others have been in the mix, his head coach said. Evers said he "loves the location" of SDSU and staying closer to home is a real possibility.

He also loved watching the Cougs practice this weekend.

"That was great. They're really devoted to the younger players, and with them going to a bowl they're taking the opportunity to improve their (younger guys') skills," said Evers.

Evers had in-homes this past week with Washington State and SDSU. The Cougs, he said, offered him about a month ago.

"They like my athleticism, that I'm tall, have long arms and athletic so I fit what they need," said Evers, who also plays basketball for Enterprise. "And I'm good at pass blocking."

EVERS AND ENTERPRISE are flying high this season, they're 12-0 and won the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section Division 2 title. They were selected yesterday to play Manteca in the NorCal bowl this coming Saturday.

"He's a very consistent, solid kid," said Enterprise head man Darren Trueblood. He's smart in the classroom (4.3 GPA) and on the football field, a real no-nonsense type of kid who has done great for us."

Evers said the academic presentations and the honors college were also among the highlights of his trip.

Evers also plays defense for Enterprise and has 35 tackles (14 solo) with 1.5 sacks and two TFL.

NOTABLE NOTE:
The other visitor this weekend was Ronald Monroe, a safety prospect out of Sugar Land, Texas. Attempts to reach Monroe Sunday and today have thus far proven unsuccessful but we're hopeful to reach him soon and will bring you his thoughts on his visit to WSU as soon as we are able to touch base.
