Add 1 more to WSU's bountiful week of verbals

A RECRUITING week that has already produced a bounty of linemen for Washington State's football today yielded someone for those hosses to block for. Running back Squally Canada, in Pullman this weekend on an official visit, moments ago tweeted the following, along with the photo of himself in a WSU sweatshirt:

Out of Milpitas, Calif., Canada has rushed for 1,879 yards this season, smashing the previous Milpitas High program record, after rushing for more than 900 hashes a year ago.

Canada, a three-star prospect, told last week he had build a strong relationship with area recruiter and fellow Milpitas product Jim Mastro - the Cougs' running backs coach.

"He's a great coach," says Canada.

Once a Boise State verbal commit, he had since narrowed his college list to WSU, Colorado, Colorado State, Houston and San Jose State and had been offered by Oregon State earlier this cycle.

Canada also told CF.C he plans on working non-stop to become a great receiver coming out of the backfield in WSU's Air Raid. Milpitas doesn't throw much to their backs -- understandable given his crooked rushing numbers -- Canada had five receptions this season, but Canada is said to have good hands and had a 57-yard catch-and-run this season.

Senior highlights:

  • Canada's first name is actually Bryant but Squally is the nickname that stuck after it was given to him by his father. On the way home from the hospital the day he was born, his dad started calling him Boo-Squally. Shortly after, it just became Squally.
