WSU Signing Day Primer: Part V

FIRST OF ALL, happy Super Bowl Sunday CougFans! With that out of the way, in this edition of our Washington State Signing Day Primer, four who are either solid or already on board with WSU. While their positions are varied, their minds are all on the same crimson track.

Sunday's collection includes Noah Myers, Logan Tago, Jeremiah Mitchell (pictured above) and Matt Abramo. Check back tomorrow to see the latest on four more WSU verbal commits in CF.C's daily primer leading up to Signing Day.

The three-star offensive lineman from Las Lomas High has been committed to the Cougars since August, even before he visited the school in September.

Myers' Twitter account shows a heading on the account reads "'15 WSU Football Commit." He tweeted a picture of him with some of the WSU coaches, saying that he had an "amazing" in-home visit with the Cougars' coaching staff that day.

Last week, Cal contacted Myers. Had Cal offered him back in the summer, he'd be a Bear -- he grew up rooting for Cal over the years and many family members have gone there. But even if Cal were to offer now, Myers told CF.C, he's told them thanks but no thanks. The reason why, he says, is because he gave his word to Washington State. And he's a man of his word.



The 6-4, 205-pound linebacker knows how it feels to have a school pursue him late in the recruiting game. Oregon State targeted the linebacker out of American Samoa, and Tago visited there last weekend. He may have taken a trip to Hawaii this weekend. But a source close to the Tago family told Cougfan.com that Tago, while seeing what else is out there, remains solid to Washington State.

Tago has a strong relationship with Joe Salave'a and has been playing sports with some of the Polynesian players at WSU since elementary school.

Tago is ranked as the top outside linebacker in American Samoa, and is rated three stars by Scout.com. He has received offers from WSU, OSU, Colorado, Hawaii and Washington.



Mitchell (6-5, 260) is another WSU junior college commit out of Riverside (Treshon Broughton, Jonah Moi). WSU announced Mitchell's signing as a mid-year junior college transfer in a Dec. 17 release. Mitchell was a big get for the Cougs and could need less of a transition period than you normally see with a good deal of speed for his size.

The defensive end made 43 total tackles for Riverside this season, including 13.5 tackles-for-loss. He also recorded six sacks, second-most on the team. Mitchell is rated four stars and No. 28 nationally among all junior college prospects by Scout.com.



Abramo is a three-star kicker out of Casa Grande High, standing at 6-2 and weighing 170 pounds. He'll get the opportunity to compete for the kicking job against soon-to-be teammates Quentin Breshears, Erik Powell and Jordan Dascalo.

This season 42 of his 54 kickoffs went for touchbacks, and 21 of his 59 punts were downed inside the 20-yard line. Abramo was 23 of 24 on extra points, and he made 10 of his 12 field goal attempts. His longest successful field goal attempt was a 46-yarder.

Abramo verbally committed to WSU during his unofficial visit in July, and his official visit made him even more sure he wanted to become a Cougar. He told CF.C's Braulio Perez that he enjoyed seeing the coaches and players again, and that he loves to work out, so WSU's facilities are perfect for continuing one of his favorite hobbies.

Abramo chose WSU over San Jose State, Yale, Cornell, Brown and Air Force.
