WSU Daily Recruiting Notebook: New commit

AS COUGAR FANS have learned, anything can change with recruiting leading up to National Signing Day. WSU lost two verbal commits on Monday, but quickly filled those spots hours later. Linebacker Nnamdi Oguayo was the first to pull the trigger and commit to the Cougs, while JUCO WR C.J. Dimry got a late offer last night and wasted no time in giving the staff his verbal.

C.J. Dimry took his official visit to Washington State over the weekend and was hoping a Cougar offer would come his way shortly after.

On Monday night, wide receiver commit Dahu Green flipped his verbal from WSU to Oklahoma, opening up a spot for another receiver. Dimry received his offer from the Cougs at around 10 p.m. and committed about 30 minutes later.

“I just committed,” Dimry texted CF.C on Monday night.

ENTERING HIS OFFICIAL visit, Dimry said he knew he needed to be patient with WSU and understood that he would have to wait and see if a verbal commit ended up flipping or not.

“Basically the coaches said they liked what they saw on my film and really want me to come out and check out the school,” Dimry said late last week. “I’m interested in them as well because of the offense they run. They throw the ball a ton and every wide receiver wants to catch as many balls as possible.”

We were unable to connect with Dimry for a full interview last night, but hope to speak with him later today.



SOME OTHER GOOD NEWS for WSU recruiting fans is that it appears three-star wide receiver Deontay Burnett will be sticking with his pledge to WSU after all.

On Monday night, Scout.com National Recruiting Analyst Greg Biggins posted in the Luxury Suites that the Serra High standout is planning on inking with the Cougs tomorrow.

“From a source close to Burnett, he plans to sign with WSU on Wednesday,” Biggins said. “There were obviously some things that needed to be smoothed over after he visited Michigan, but it appears they have and things are solid between the two party's.

It's a good fit for both sides, Burnett will thrive in that offense and WSU is getting a very good player who I think could have played for either USC or UCLA this year.”

Burnett tripped to Michigan over the weekend and was also rumored to be considering a late tender from Arizona State.

HERE ARE SOME more recruiting nuggets:

• As most of you know by now, Kyahva Tezino also decommitted from WSU on Monday. The four-star linebacker told CF.C last week that he was solid with the Cougs and he was planning on signing with them. Things change quickly in recruiting, though. Tezino’s spot was quickly filled by Oguayo, who tripped to WSU on Friday.

• Two WSU targets are set to announce on National Signing day. Defensive end Mufi Hunt has WSU in his top five and will make his decision at 10 a.m. Wide receiver George Wilson has WSU in his top three and will make his decision at around 11:30 a.m.

• With WSU’s recent shake up with commits, the Cougars now hold the No. 33 class in the nation according to Scout.com. Last week, WSU was tied with Oregon for No. 24.

• ICYMI, On National Signing Day, ol’ Cougar corner Jason David is going to be hosting a special event for southern California Cougs. David owns the Stars SoCal facility in Anaheim, where training and sports medicine is practiced. On Feb. 4, Davis has invited all SoCal WSU commits, and fans, to a special signing day party. This includes Kameron Powell, Kyle Sweet, James Williams, Treshon Broughton, Taeon Mason and Darrien Molton. Others are also being reached out to.
