WSU SCHOLIE OFFERS continue to mount up with a week-plus left in the May evaluation period. Among the recent offers made by Washington State: San Clemente QB Jack Sears (pictured above), ATH Jermani Brown out of Virginia and St. John Bosco cornerback Chris Steele.

For a list of 2017 prospects with known WSU offers, with player interest at medium and above:


COUGAR WIDEOUT Gabe Marks is likely to break to the Pac-12’s all-time receptions mark this season and some internet gurus figure he will go relatively early in next year’s NFL draft.  Quarterback Luke Falk, a junior-to-be, is being talked about as one who could come out early.

But ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr., the best known NFL draft analyst, doesn’t have either among his top 10 at the position.  Kiper this week listed the top five senior prospects, and the top five underclass prospects, at each offensive position and neither Marks nor Falk were among the names on his list. You can find the article here, requires ESPN subscription.

A lot can change between now and next year’s draft, obviously.  Former Cougar safety Deone Bucannon steadily climbed up draft boards his senior season and was taken in the first round by Arizona in the 2014 draft.

SPEAKING OF BUCANNON, he is Exhibit A of the new type of safety-linebacker hybrid, the Arizona Republic writes, a position that seems to be all the latest rage in the NFL.

NFL linebackers can no longer just be the guys who hit and run, they also have to be able to cover and play in space.  You can read the article on Bucannon HERE
