Three-star CB high on WSU, official visit set

RECRUITS AND FANS very often see wins and losses quite differently. Take Los Angeles cornerback Cameron Haney. The three-star prospect will trip to WSU later this month and tells CF.C that the Cougs’ slow start has actually raised his interest in the program.

The WSU staff has been recruiting Cathedral High's Haney for quite some time and last week outside wide receivers coach Dennis Simmons and Haney put the finishing touches on his official visit plans to the Palouse.

“I’ll be going out there on Sept. 20 for my visit,” Haney said. “I spoke with Coach Simmons about it and we worked it out for that day. They play Oregon that weekend so it should be a good game. That’s kind of why I picked that date too. To see WSU play them.

“I’m really excited to get up there. I want to meet all of the coaches and get the chance to see the fans at the game. I want to see what the atmosphere is like and also take a look at the new facilities that they have.”

AND AS FOR WSU’S disappointing start to the season?

“It doesn’t change my opinion on them at all,” Haney said. “It actually makes me more eager to get out there, if I pick them, and help them get more victories. I could go up there and lock receivers down.

“It makes me want to go there more because now they might not be the team that’s favored to win, but they’re still going to go out there and battle and surprise people.”

Haney said there’s another reason why he has WSU among his top three schools.

“I just like their competitiveness and how they’re always willing to fight,” Haney said. “I like the head coach, Mike Leach, a lot too. He’s a great coach and I know they play a lot of young guys on defense. That sticks out.”

MOVING FORWARD, the 6-0 170-pounder said he plans on taking all five of his official visits before making his decision. He added that WSU, ASU and Washington are his top three, while Boise State and Nevada round out his top five. He has offers from all those schools.

He’ll be taking visits to all of those schools before making a decision.

As for his performance on the field, Haney recorded five tackles and two pass deflections for Cathedral over the weekend. He added a touchdown catch on offense.
