Three-star WR Isaiah Hodgins to visit WSU on Wednesday

WITH SPRING FOOTBALL in full swing at Washington State, it’s a perfect opportunity for the Cougars to host prospects for unofficial visits -- and not only for the Cougs' upcoming junior day. On Wednesday, touted wide receiver Isaiah Hodgins, a 6-3 speedster out of California, will be on campus to meet with the WSU coaches and check out the Cougars in action

Hodgins is ranked three stars by and the No. 14 wide receiver out West.

As you might imagine,  Mike Leach's Air Raid offense is intriguing to the 6-3, 190-pounder out of Walnut Creek, Calif..

This is exactly why he’ll be taking an unofficial visit to the Palouse on Wednesday.

“I can tell they have a great coaching staff from talking with them a lot,” Hodgins told CF.C on Tuesday. “They air it out all game and I can see myself fitting in their offense.”


Hodgins already holds an offer from WSU. In addition to his crimson tender, the Berean Christian High product also holds scholarships from Boise State, Colorado, Oregon State, Nevada, Hawaii, Wyoming and others.

As a junior last season, Hodgins put up big numbers, hauling in 94 receptions for 1,483 yards and 23 touchdowns.


Elsewhere in WSU recruiting, the Cougars also hosted in-state cornerback Anfernee Gurley for an unofficial visit over the weekend.

Gurley, a two-star cornerback out of Everett’s Archbishop Murphy, had glowing things to say about his WSU visit.

“I loved it out there,” he said. “What I liked most about the visit was definitely the facilities and how everything is so central. It’s a great college town. I’ve been talking with Coach Eric Mele and Coach Gordy Anderson. They’ve been telling me how great it is and how amazing of a place WSU is.”

The 5-11, 175-pounder currently holds an offer from Eastern Washington and is receiving interest from WSU, UW, Montana, Idaho and others. Gurley said he’ll be returning to WSU in June to participate in a team camp.

“I’m going to go back and show the coaches what I can do there (camp),” Gurley said. “WSU is recruiting me as a defensive back. They want to see me live. Hopefully I can do well and earn an offer from them.

“I pride myself on intensity, mostly on defense. The more intense and the harder you play, the better you play.”

Last season, Gurley recorded 37 tackles, three interceptions and five pass deflections. Offensively, he had 50 rushes for 607 yards and 10 touchdowns and added 780 yards and nine more scores receiving.

WSU's junior day is Saturday, April 2.
