Video: New WSU offers extended by Mike Leach

A THREE-STAR prospect’s recruitment had been going along pretty well – he’d picked up a number of smaller school offers over the past several months. But things took a big turn this week and he is off the radar no more after landing a Pac-12 offer from Washington State.

Not much has been written about Skyler Thomas this recruiting season, despite his being named second team All-CIF as a junior after posting 87 tackles with an eye-opening seven forced fumbles along with one interception.

The 5-11, 170-pounder out of Citrus Hill High in Perris, Calif. is listed by Scout.com as a safety prospect, while others see him as a cornerback at the next level.

"Thomas is built like a lot of the more modern safeties - a little undersized, but playing much bigger than they are. He’ll knock your head off, he closes really well and has a good nose for the ball, despite not having ideal safety size," says Scout.com's Brandon Huffman.

Here’s Thomas' highlight reel:



Also picking up a known WSU offer this week is Trey Udoffia out of Del Oro High in Loomis.

A 6-1, 170-pound wideout, Udoffia is also ranked three stars on Scout.com.

"The first thing that stands out about Udoffia is his versatility - he’s been recruited as a receiver, corner and safety. I think his best position right now is receiver- he’s explosive with good burst and catches the ball well. But I can see why schools like him as a corner, he’s fluid, a good athlete, surprisingly physical with good ball skills," said Huffman.



Washington State has 112 known offers out to uncommitted prospects.
