WSU recruiting: One less name on the board

WASHINGTON STATE, in the final days before letters of intent are signed on Wednesday, is doing anything but standing pat when it comes to its recruiting board.

And then there were four.

Two reliable prep sources tell CF.C that defensive end prospect Curtis Weaver out of Long Beach, Calif. no longer holds a WSU offer.

The sources declined to speak in-depth on the reason but one said Weaver (6-2, 245) may have been a victim of waiting too long to decide.

Weaver is now expected to sign with Boise State on Wednesday.

Weaver no long having a crimson offer means there are four (known) uncommitted prospects Washington State is believed to be pursuing to cap off its signing class: OL Frederick Mauigoa, ATH Tayler Hawkins, RB/ATH Zion Echols and DT Wayne Kirby.

The Cougs have 28 known verbal/signings but two, WRs Stephen Houston and Josiah Westbrook, will not sign  with Washington State on Wednesday (see previous CF.C article). It is unknown if one or both might delay enrollment or blueshirt at WSU.

In addition, Michigan OL Logan Tuley-Tillman, who does not show on the commit list because he would be a transfer, verbally committed to WSU earlier this month but is still taking official visits and looking around (he has told CF.C he will not give any more media interviews until he graduates in June).

Schools can sign a maximum of 25 initial counters. The Cougs had four early enrollees in January as the first members of its 2016 class: WR Isaiah Johnson, ATH/QB Justus Rogers, CB Jalen Thompson and JUCO DE Garrett McBroom
