Cali hoss in Pullman for WSU visit

IT’S BEEN A BUSY 24 hours for WSU recruiting. Two prospects made verbal commits Thursday, while two uncommitted prospects are in Pullman right now for unofficial visits. One is kicker Matt Abramo, who has been high on the Cougs for some time, while the other is 6-5, 315-pound hoss Noah Myers, who also has Washington State high on his board.

Myers arrived in Spokane last night and made the trip to Pullman earlier this morning. It’s a visit he’s had planned for nearly a month, and one he’s very much excited about.

“I’ve seen all the videos on the WSU website of all their new facilities and I’ve been talking with the coaches on the phone and on Twitter,” Myers said. “You hear so many great things, but to be able to see everything in person will be a great experience.

“I’ve been talking with Coach (Clay) McGuire about this visit for a weeks now and I know he and the rest of the coaches are excited to show me around.”

MYERS SAID HIS relationship with McGuire is a strong one.

“We talk on Twitter a lot and we spoke on the phone last week,” Myers said. “He was just filling me in on the program and letting me know about the changes that are going on around campus. I had a lot of questions and he filled me in on a lot of stuff.

“We have a good relationship and both him and Coach (Mike) Leach have told me that they’re building something special up in Pullman right now. They believe they’re rebuilding the program and they want to get back to the Rose Bowl.”

IN ADDITION TO WSU, the offensive guard prospect also holds offers from Montana and Weber State. Myers is also receiving interest from Cal, Arizona State, UCLA and UW, where he’ll be taking an unofficial visit to on Saturday.

“I don’t have a favorite school right now,” Myers said on the cusp of his trip. "I don’t have a lot of offers and am waiting to see who else might come in. Washington State, Cal, UCLA and ASU are sticking out to me early, though.

“I’m not going to rush a decision. I’m going to talk it over with my family and probably pick a school in the middle of my senior season.” NOTABLE NOTE:
Abramo told me this week WSU remains his top school. The 6-3, 185-pounder had 52 touchbacks out of 65 kickoffs last season as a junior. In case you missed it, CLICK HERE. Also in town this weekend is Cougar commit and 4-star prospect Austin Joyner.
