Mele was racking up the miles in California earlier this week, and the Cougs' special teams coach was back in Western Washington making the rounds on Wednesday.
A home-grown DT put out this tweet earlier today:
It is believed Washington State is looking at Tialavea as a preferred walk on.
WSU LB verbal commit Derek Moore is among those visiting WSU this weekend. He had an in-home with Leach and Mele this week.
Future Cougar WR Grant Porter is also headed to Pullman this weekend on his official and hosted Leach, Wilson and Nichol this week on an in-home.
WSU coaches were also at Calabasas, Calif., where 2017 class 4-star QB Tristan Gebbia holds a WSU offer.
Meanwhile, off the recruiting trail … Washington State under Mike Leach does not comment on off-field incidents like the recent one involving running back Jamal Morrow, who was arrested for DUI over the weekend. But the Cougar running back did, and in 15 words on twitter put up a message that strongly resonated with CougFans, garnering 102 likes and 28 retweets at last count.
