Will it be WSU for three-star WR Porter?

AND THEN THERE were three for Upland, Calif., wide receiver Grant Porter. The three-star product will announce his college decision Wednesday night. He told CF.C on Tuesday afternoon that the Cougs are among the three schools he’ll chose between. And after a conversation with the speedy receiver, it looks like the Cougs are in a good spot.

“I’m announcing tomorrow night,” Grant Porter informed CF.C moments ago. “It’s between Utah, Washington State and Boise State.”

Throughout his recruitment, Porter (pictured above) has spoken very highly of the Washington State coaches and the Air Raid offense. Inside linebackers coach Ken Wilson is the point man on Porter’s recruitment.

“My relationship with the coaches is great,” Porter said. “I’ve been talking to them a lot lately. Probably more than any other coaching staff. We’ve been talking about the offense and what I’d be able to do over there.

“I recently spoke with Coach Wilson and he was just telling me how much he’d love to have me up there. I’d be a good fit for the program and he said I’d be missing out if I didn’t commit to them.”

WILSON AND THE WSU coaches aren’t the only ones recruiting the 6-0, 175-pounder. Former Upland teammates Tyler Hilinski and Kameron Powell, both WSU true freshman, played with Porter in 2014 and have been in his ear about going crimson.

“That’s really part of the reason I like WSU so much,” Porter said. “I’ve been talking with those guys (Hilinski and Powell) and they’ve told me WSU is the place to be. They’re enjoying everything up there and they keep telling me how great the program is.

“It’s a place where you can go out and succeed. They’re having a lot of fun at Washington State right now.”

Throughout his recruitment process, Porter picked up offers from WSU, Utah, Boise State, Kansas, Colorado State, San Diego State and San Jose State.

“I’m still talking things over with my parents right now,” he said. “I’m not quite sure where I’ll be going yet. I’ll be announcing that tomorrow night for sure.”

Mike Leach has developed a strong recruiting pipeline to Upland High, with Hilinski, Powell and second-year cornerback Jeff Farrar on the Washington State roster.
