UPDATED: Top-flight cover corner to WSU

DARRIEN MOLTON, one of the best cover corners in the state of California this recruiting cycle, was determined to hold off on a verbal commitment until he found the right school. On Monday, he found it. Cougfan.com spoke with the newest member of Washington State's 2014 recruiting class.

Molton (5-10, 165) out of Temecula, Calif., has gone crimson, he told Cougfan.com.

"I really like Coach (Ken) Wilson and I like their defense, he did a really good job recruiting me and I was blessed to have a scholarship offer from them. It just felt like the best fit... it just felt perfect for me so I made the decision to commit now," said Molton.

Molton said he'll take an unofficial visit up to Washington State soon, possibly in mid-July.

Washington State under Mike Breske has leaned towards tall corners 6-foot or better, so when they go after a guy who's shorter than that it's something worth noticing.

"They just think I'm a great cover corner and they like that I'm a balanced corner, that I can tackle too, but they said I'm excellent when it comes to covering," said Molton. Molton is one of the top cover corners in the state, says Scout.com recruiting expert Greg Biggins.

The Chaparral High product chose Washington State over offers from California, Utah, Colorado, Duke and San Diego.
