Future Coug OL’s new highlight reel a blast

CHRISTIAN HAANGANA at 6-foot-6, 347-pounds is a veritable mountain out on the gridiron. A mountain with a nasty streak that can get out and move – as the future Washington State o-lineman’s new highlight reel captures quite nicely.

Out of Milipitas, Calif., three-star prospect Haangana finishes his blocks, and then some. 

He is rated in the top 100 nationally at offensive guard by and the No. 11 offensive guard out West.

On the video below (includes both pass blocking and run blocking sections) Haangana holds onto his blocks exceedingly well. Often, he's seen either driving many of his opponents downfield, planting his man on his wallet, or both.  He takes his official visit to Washington State this weekend.


--Haangana is nicknamed "The Chef" for his culinary talents. He could gain another nickname when he gets to WSU: "Country Strong."  He already benches 400 pounds.

--Haangana verbally committed to Washington State sight unseen, telling CF.C back in November the catalyst was he Cougar caoching staff led by WSU area recruiter and Milpitas native Jim Mastro, with an assist by Cougar defensive assistant David Lose.

--Haangana, of Polynesian descent, chose Washington State over offers from Utah, Oregon State and San Jose State.

--He first came onto the WSU radar after his sophomore season when Mike Leach and Co. worked a satellite camp in California.
