MORE BREAKING: Cougs land American Samoa duo

WASHINGTON STATE’s recruiting class is growing by leaps and bounds. On Monday, WSU chief of staff Dave Emerick said on Cougar Calls with Bill Moos that Mike Leach has 21 verbal commitments. And now has confirmed who the missing two on our commit list were -- OLB/ATH Logan Tago and OL Amosa Sakaria.

Tago (6-4, 205) and Sakaria (6-3, 280) have actually been verbally committed for some time to Washington State - they solidified their verbal pledges this past weekend on an official visit to Washington State, Brian Smart of FieldHouse100 tells

“Logan is a big, athletic kid who can play defense, he can play offense,” Smart said. “…I think Washington State likes him on both sides and it’ll be one of those things where they’ll bring him in and then decide then… because he is so tall and explosive.

“Amosa is just powerful, he just dominated people at the line of scrimmage… I know he’s going to be an inside guy for them at guard… he’s a real aggressive guy and a smart kid. He’s also a real humble kid, going to do exactly what he’s coached to do.”

Tago (on the right in the picture above) held offers from Washington, Colorado and Hawaii, while Oregon was trying to get him in for a visit. Sakaria (pictured left) held an offer from Hawaii.

Both Tago and Sakaria are solid to Washington State with no more trips on the schedule, Smart said.

And from this chair, that’s due in large part to WSU area recruiter and d-line coach Joe Salave’a rock star status in American Samoa. As has been the case in his time at Washington State out on the American Samoa recruiting trail, when Big Joe decides he wants ‘em, he gets ‘em.

  • Tago and Sakaria bring the tally to 22 known verbal commitments in the WSU class, joining S Shalom Luani, DT Dillon Faamatau, LB Eddie Rudinski, DL Hunter Mattox, OT Davis Perrott, DE Jonah Moi, DE Jeremiah Mitchell, CB Treshon Broughton, WR Kyrin Priester, OT Austin Maihen, OG Noah Myers, K Matt Abramo, OT Cedric Bigge-Duren, WR Deontay Burnett, CB Darrien Molton, LB Aaron Porter, RB James Williams, S Kameron Powell, QB Tyler Hilinski and DT Thomas Toki.
