WSU football: '14 class holdover signs FAA

THE LATEST ON Pasco's Deion Singleton: he's scheduled to arrive at Washington State in January and participate in spring ball. Singleton, a 6-1, 175-pound corner/safety who originally signed as part of WSU's 2014 class but did not qualify in time, has signed a Financial Aid Agreement with WSU, the school said in a release. Lionel Singleton, Deion's brother, says Deion has been busy this offseason.

Deion Singleton's brother Lionel, who played for Florida International and the Tri-Cities Fever of the Indoor Football League, told CF.C on Thursday night his younger brother faxed in the signed FAA paperwork to WSU today. Lioneal and Deion have been working out together frequently this fall.

"I'm just trying to give him some of the tools I learned later on in my career and just try to pass them to him early on so he can have that edge going in as a rookie... He's really excited... Both of us are motivated for the upcoming season," said Lionel.

Lionel said Deion has one more online class he's waiting for a grade to come in before submitting final paperwork to the NCAA.

"WSU has been with him since the beginning... WSU has been patient with the whole deal and stuck with with him the whole time," said the elder Singleton.

A two-way starter at receiver and defensive back for Chiawana in 2013, Singleton was named league MVP, All-Area Player of the Year by the Tri-City Herald, All-Classifications All-State by the Seattle Times and Tacoma News Tribune. He was also named Associated Press Class 4A All-State after catching 45 passes for 838 yards and nine touchdowns, with four picks on defense.

He was also one of only five Northwest Nuggets named by the Tacoma News Tribune, making him, in their eyes, one of the five best prospects in the region comprising WA, OR, ID and AK.

Before moving to Washington, Singleton had a phalanx of offers, including rides from South Carolina, LSU, Florida, Auburn, Georgia, Arkansas, Louisville and others but his academic situation ultimately led to those schools looking elsewhere. He signed with WSU this past February.
