Ryan earned a WSU offer way back in the summer after a satellite camp in Redlands worked by Mike Leach and the WSU staff.
He has long arms, great feet and a big frame and room to pack on the bulk. The La Verne, Calif., product was the starting center on Damien High's state championship basketball team as a junior.
Rated two stars by Scout.com, the o-tackle prospect pledged WSU over offers from Nevada, San Diego State, UNLV and others.
Ryan is still on his official visit, but we'll touch base with him tomorrow for more on his decision to go crimson.
Ryan becomes the 23rd known verbal commitment in WSU's 2016 class, joining DE Lyric Bartley, S Robert Taylor, RB Romello Harris, OL Christian Haangana, OL Jaelen Lewis, OL Keenen King, CB Marcus Strong, ATH Justus Rogers DE Mason Vinyard, CB Isaiah Love, LB Derek Moore, LB Chima Onyeukwu, QB Cody Brewer, WR Grant Porter, CB/Nickel Skyler Thomas, OL Joshua Watson, WR Josiah Westbrook, WR/CB D'Jimon Jones, WR Stephen Houston, CB Jalen Thompson, WR/CB Renard Bell and LB Jihad Woods.
