The 6-6, 300-pound in-state offensive tackle is a Coug.
On Saturday afternoon, the Richland hoss gave his verbal to the Cougar coaches while in Pullman during his unofficial visit for the WSU Jr. Day. Powell is a highly rated prospect, ranked four stars and the No. 34 offensive tackle nationally by Scout.com.
Powell also had offers from Colorado State and Wyoming, and was also receiving interest from Boise State, UCLA, Washington, Oregon and several others.
In a recent interview with CF.C, Powell said he had a strong relationship with WSU offensive line coach Clay McGuire.
“Coach McGuire has been telling me a lot of great things about the program,” Powell said earlier this month. “He told me that he really likes how nasty and mean I am on the field. He said he fell in love with my game when he saw me on the field.”
Powell joins QB Connor Neville and DB Tayari Venable as members of WSU's 2017 class.
