WSU DL target tells CF.C when he’ll announce

THREE-STAR defensive end prospect Curtis Weaver out of Long Beach, Calif., has an idea of where he’s headed but tells CF.C he’s “still weighing some things.” He is absolutely certain, however, about when he’ll make his announcement, and what the single most important factor will be in his decision.

Cougar fans will probably have to wait until Wednesday to find out if Weaver (6-2, 245) is headed to Washington State or Boise State.

“I’m announcing on February 3, on Signing Day,” said Weaver. “I’ll have my decision before that, but that’s when my announcement is.”

CF.C did not talk with Weaver long but there’s an old recruiting adage that says when it comes to trying to predict recruiting, no one's opinion counts more than mom's. 

That’s the case here.

‘My mom, she’s been there my whole football career, so she has a big say in it,” said Curtis when asked for the No. 1 thing that will decide it for him.

Weaver said he has a strong connection with both the WSU and BSU staffs.

“Both of them, I’m really comfortable with the coaches and that’s why they’re, like, the final choices,” said Weaver. “With WSU, it’s a college town, all the people there are friendly… down to earth.”

Weaver pulled in double-digit offers this recruiting cycle, including rides from Wisconsin, Duke, Boston College and others.

Missouri came in on Weaver a couple weeks ago and looked to be a real darkhorse candidate, but that might not be the case any longer. Missouri’s emergence was based on former USC d-line coach Chris Wilson, with whom Curtis had built a relationship with when Wilson was in L.A. Wilson was named Missouri’s new d-line coach a little over a month ago but on Wednesday left Mizzou to join the Philadelphia Eagles’ staff.
