WSU Signing Day Primer: The final entry

WITH SIGNING DAY kicking off in less than 24 hours, final and furious machinations are still taking place on the Washington State commit list. There has been movement on two Cougar WR verbals, Deontay Burnett and Dahu Green. One has solidified his Washington State pledge while the other looks to be staying close to home. Keep in mind, nothing is final until they sign tomorrow.

This is the final installment in the Signing Day primer series. We will cover Darrien Molton and Amosa Sakaria but also, a look at the latest on Dahu Green and Deontay Burnett (pictured above), who both came forward with big news Monday.

Burnett received a late offer from Michigan and took an official visit there this weekend. But on Monday night, Scout.com National Recruiting Analyst Greg Biggins citing a source posted in the Cougfan.com Luxury Suites that the the 5-11, 170-pounder is planning on inking with the Cougs tomorrow.

There were multiple reports over the weekend that Burnett had committed to Michigan but those turned out to be incorrect. Burnett has also received a late offer from Arizona State and the Sun Devils continue to try and get him to flip.

Burnett made 27 catches for 545 yards and five touchdowns during his senior season at Junipero Serra High. Ranked as the No. 14 receiver in California, Burnett earned the MVP award in the West Coast Bowl, hauling in two touchdowns passes.



Green has flipped to Oklahoma, announcing his decision Monday night on twitter. The 6-3, 185-pound wide receiver was offered by Oklahoma just last week. The Oklahoma native was first verbally committed to Louisville, then Washington State and now Oklahoma. He officially visited WSU in October. Green plans a Signing Day ceremony at 9:30 a.m. CST at Westmoore High.



Molton (5-10, 165) is a cornerback out of Chaparral High who committed to WSU in late June. He visited Pullman at the beginning of December after his high school season was done. Molton said back in June when he verbally pledged to the Cougars that he appreciated how well Ken Wilson recruited him.

Last week, Molton received an in-home visit from Wilson, Mike Leach, Alex Grinch and Roy Manning.

The cover corner has offers from Cal, Utah, Colorado and others. He is ranked the No. 21 cornerback in California, and the No. 24 CB in the West region by Scout.com.



The 6-3, 280-pound offensive lineman out of American Samoa is rated two stars by scout.com. Sakaria also has received an offer from Hawaii during this recruiting cycle. The Tafuna High product visited WSU with fellow future Cougar Logan Tago (LB) in mid-December. Joe Salave'a continues to haul in recruits from American Samoa for WSU.
