That's because a quarterback with a WSU offer will be out on the Palouse.
Tyler Hilinski will travel to Spokane late Wednesday night, travel down to Pullman on Thursday morning and will be visiting with the Cougar coaches on Friday, too.
"Washington State is a great school... I really want to see what the university is like, I love the coaches. I've been talking to Coach Ken Wilson a lot, I've had several phone calls with Coach Leach... I can't wait to see everything up there," said Hilinski.
The 6-3, 200-pounder is rated three stars and is one of two known uncommitted QBs (Brady White is the other one) who have been offered by Mike Leach.
"They I remind them a lot of their current starter, Connor Halliday," said Hilinski. "They thought I had a really quick release, good decision-making, some intangibles they've been talking to my coach about... (Leach) said he really liked my tape, loved my footwork in the pocket."
Hilinski has offers from WSU, Utah State and Penn, with Arizona State, Cal, Colorado, Pitt and Michigan State all showing interest.
Hilinski threw for 3,053 yards and 34 touchdowns as a junior. He rushed for 334 yards and four more scores as well.
Hilinski, out of Upland, Calif., "does a very nice job of anticipating his throws and throwing with great accuracy. He's a clutch performer who never looks rattled, is very poised and is a natural leader who can rally a team," says Scout.com.
