WSU Recruiting: New Leach offer to 4-star QB

THURSDAY TURNED OUT to be a busy day for Washington State head man Mike Leach . After offering four-star Glendora, Calif., prospect Matt Fink earlier in the day, Leach and WSU sent out another QB offer Thursday night, with four-star signal caller Devon Modster adding a crimson scholarship to his list.

Checking in at 6-2, 215-pounds, Devon Modster has the size, arm and speed Mike Leach is looking for in his quarterback for the 2016 class. The Las Flores, Calif., signal caller, who was offered by Leach and his staff late Thursday evening, has impressive film to prove that.

As a junior in 2014, the four-star quarterback threw for 2,602 yards and 24 touchdowns, while rushing 133 times for 680 yards and 12 more scores.

In addition to Washington State, the Tesoro High standout also holds offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, Boise State, Kansas and Fresno State. Shortly after his offer was announced, National Recruiting Analyst Greg Biggins provided this update for CF.C subscribers in the Luxury Suites.

"Las Flores (Calif) Tesoro '16 QB Devon Modster was very excited by the offer from the Cougs and said he has high interest," Biggins said. "His older brother Sean plays WR at Boise State and they just offered earlier in the week. UCLA is high on his list as well but has yet to offer. I think this offer puts WSU right in his top 3 and he's going to try and get out for a visit in the spring for sure.

Modster is rated the No. 15 quarterback nationally and the No. 234 prospect overall in the 2016 class by

He's also rated the No. 3 QB in California and the No. 4 signal caller in the West.

"Modster has a stocky frame that makes him look shorter than he is but he's probably about 6-1.5 to 6-2 and 215 pounds," Biggins recently wrote on Modster. "He shows off a strong, down-field arm and can put the ball in tight windows. He shows poise in the pocket and has an even keel mentality and won't be easily rattled. He's also a plus athlete who has very good mobility in the pocket, the strength to shrug off would be tacklers and the ability to run for positive yards."
