Washington State recruiting: Cougs after another touted WR out of Florida?

WASHINGTON STATE ALREADY holds three verbal commitments from Florida in its 2017 class, but that doesn't mean they're done recruiting down south. Wide receiver D.J. Edwards just recently landed his tender from the Cougs, but the coaches are letting him know they want him in crimson.

The Sunshine State has been good to the Cougar coaches this recruiting cycle. 

WSU already holds verbal pledges from defensive back Zaire Webb, defensive tackle Lamonte McDougle and wide receiver Anthony White Jr. You can add another name of intrigue to the list in Edwards.

The 6-2, 180-pound outside wide receiver prospect hauled in his tender from the Washington State coaches on Aug. 17, adding another offer to his high list. In addition to the Cougs, Edwards has been offered by Oregon State, Kentucky, Illinois, Louisville, Missouri, Penn State and several others.

On Wednesday night, the three-star prospected informed Cougfan.com that he's continued to be in contact with the Washington State coaches since landing his scholarship from the staff.

Edwards is in the process of finalizing his official visits' schedule, but will be at Illinois this weekend and will be taking a trip to the Indiana campus to catch a game next month. The three-star prospect recently told Scout.com's Matt Weaver that he's planning on taking all five of his official visits before pulling the trigger and making his college decision.

Another prospect for Cougar fans to keep a close eye on is inside linebacker Riko Jeffers. The 6-1, 235-pounder has long held an offer from WSU, receiving his scholie tender back in March.

In an interview late last week with Scout.com's Greg Powers, Jeffers made it clear that he's got high interest in the Cougars and definitely wants to get out to the Palouse before National Signing Day. 

"Wazzu, Indiana, Mississippi State and probably Boise State," Jeffers told Scout's Powers when asked which schools he knows he wants to visit before making his decision. 

Jeffers is also ranked three stars by Scout.com, and the No. 20 ILB prospect in the nation. In addition to WSU, he holds tenders from Indiana, Mississippi State, Boise State, Colorado, SMU, Kansas, Oklahoma State and several others.
