BREAKING: CF.C speaks with new Cali DB verbal Damion Lee

IT WAS JUST last night that California wide receiver/defensive back Damion Lee received his offer from recruiter Ken Wilson and Washington State. And just 24 hours later, the 6-1, 180-pounder told Cougfan.com that he knows where he belongs for the next 4-5 years.

And it's Pullman.

"I committed to Washington State tonight," Lee told CF.C moments ago. "I just like the coaching staff and the energy that they bring. That was one of the biggest things that sold me on the program."

And the energy from Wilson is what sent WSU over the top. The WSU inside linebackers coach has been in steady contact with Lee throughout the summer and fall, keeping the California native informed on all things crimson.

"I spoke with Coach Wilson tonight to let him know I wanted to commit and he was very excited," Lee said. "He told me that he's happy to have me and that we should have one of the fastest defenses in the conference once I get up there."

In addition to WSU, the newest Cougar verbal also had an offer from BYU and was receiving interest from Arizona, Arizona State, UNLV and a handful of others. He's rated a two-star wide receiver by Scout.com, but will arrive to WSU on the other side of the ball.

"Coach Wilson and the staff like me as a safety, nickelback type player," Lee said. "WSU likes my speed and the energy that I bring out onto the field whenever I suit up."

Lee is the 12th known verbal for WSU's 2017 class.
