WSU Recruiting: Could one of these 4 be Leach's next QB?

WITH QUENTIN DAVIS telling CF.C he decommitted from Washington State on Friday, Mike Leach has an interesting choice to make. With but 12 days to go before Signing Day, does Leach forego a QB in this recruiting class? Or, if he does sign a QB, what’s left at this late stage in the uncommitted cupboard? Here are four top uncommitted prep QB prospects out West still available.
