Russell was joined at Tukwila's Starfire Academy by fellow WSU coaches Mike Breske and David Yost, and a pair of WSU graduate assistants.
"You're seeing ability levels at all levels from the Northwest, not just the state of Washington, but Idaho kids are here, Oregon kids (are here) and it's just kind of good to see in one spot," said Breske, the Cougars' defensive coordinator.

"That was my goal coming in, I just said ‘hey I want to get MVP at linebackers' and I was one of the three (selected) so you can't complain," said Tobeck, a two-way standout at Cascade Christian in Puyallup, and the son of former WSU and Seahawks standout Robbie Tobeck.
"I get lots of mail from them (WSU), I talk to the coaching staff a lot, I try (to talk with them) once a week," Tobeck said of his status in the eyes of the Cougars.
He plans to visit WSU this summer along with several other schools. Colorado State, Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana State have all offered scholarships to the 6-3, 215-pound Tobeck. The Cascade Christian linebacker racked up 100 tackles including seven sacks in 2013.
Tobeck said he's working his "butt off" seven days a week. He lifts weights in the morning and works on agility after school. He was all-league last season on offense and defense and first-team Associated Press 1A All-State.
Another player on the Cougars radar for the 2015 recruiting cycle is Bothell wideout Jackson Keimig (above, center), who won the camp's MVP award at receiver.
"I think I had a great camp day, I had fun competing out there," said the 6-3, 205-pound Keimig. "It felt great (to take home the MVP award). I came out here last year, didn't quite get it (the MVP award), but I'm happy to get it this year."
He said he's received letters from WSU and has talked with the coaching staff briefly over Facebook. He plans to visit a couple Ivy League schools over the summer and attend the Stanford and Washington football camps.
He has offers from Air Force, Idaho, Columbia, Dartmouth, Montana State, Montana, and Pennsylvania and interest from Utah.
Alex Neale (6-3, 270) from Eastside Catholic High in Sammamish won the MVP award for the offensive linemen. "I didn't lose very many reps during one-on-one (drills), so I felt pretty good," the second-team All-State center (pictured above, right) told CF.C.
He said he hasn't received any offers yet, but is being contacted by multiple Ivy League schools and that WSU has also been in contact. He said he plans to attend the Nike Football Training Camp in Eugene this weekend, and summer camps at Oregon, Oregon State and Montana.
