Utah leads the second tier with eight known Cougar offers. (Hawaii has seven, Washington has five. California has 49).
Here’s what really interesting about the Beehive State and Wazzu recruiting -- only one player on the WSU roster this spring is from Utah. And he originally walked on – quarterback Luke Falk.
Another Utah product will arrive later this summer, defensive end T.J. Fehoko out of Cottonwood High, a last minute crimson win this past February on Signing Day. Still, that will make for all of two players on the WSU roster from Utah.
The Cougs, obviously for the 2016 class, are looking to change that.
Joe Salave’a is the Cougs’ point man on recruiting Utah and the 2016 crop looks like a particularly good one. (And don't discount this factoid when it comes to recruiting weekends either - Salt Lake City to Lewiston is a non-stop flight).
There’s a pair of Scout.com 300 prospects out of Utah who have been offered by the Cougs and the other six prospects with crimson offers are all rated three-star prospects.
Here’s a look at them in action during their junior seasons.
DE Pookie Maka, Woods Cross High, (6-4, 200)

DE Fua Pututau, Cottonwood, (6-3, 230)
LB Keenan Pili, Timpview High, (6-2, 200)

WR Simi Fehoko, Brighton High, (6-4, 183)
DE Maxs Tupai, (Murray High, (6-3, 250)
