City College of San Francisco safety Shalom Luani is a Coug.
“He flipped from Oregon State to Washington State last night,” Brandon Smart at FieldHouse100 told Cougfan.com.
Luani, who checks in at 6-1, 200-pounds, took an official visit to Washington State on Dec. 5. In addition to his WSU and Oregon State offers, the newest Coug also had offers from Washington and Illinois.
WITH LUANI GOING CRIMSON, the Cougs continued their hot streak of adding verbal commits. WSU has five known commits in the last five days, with Luani, Dillon Faamatau, Eddie Rudinski, Hunter Mattox and Davis Perrott all giving the WSU staff their verbals.
Luani is a hard-hitting defensive back (see highlights above) with excellent speed. In a recent interview with the San Francisco Examiner, CCSF head man George Rush said Luani was a freak athlete. This season, Luani, named the Bay 6 Conference Defensive Player of the Year, recorded more than 60 tackles, forced two fumbles and had four interceptions.
"And with the way he runs with the ball after those interceptions, he'd be our best running back if he didn't play defense," Rush told Matthew Snyder.
Luani becomes the third four-star recruit to commit to Washington State, joining defensive tackle Thomas Toki and defensive back Kameron Powell.
