With Zaire Webb’s tweet, SIX new Cougs set to join Washington State next week for earliest of head starts

BASED ON THE tweet by Zaire Webb today, an influx of six -- count ‘em, six -- new Cougars appear set to start classes at Washington State on Monday. It's the ultimate head start.

The longtime Cougar pledge (pictured above) will be joined on campus by another early high school graduate, a 2016 WSU class holdover plus three junior college transfers who signed in December.  Half of the early arrivals are expected to line up at cornerback, two of the prepsters are from the state of Florida and the sextuple average 3 stars.

The six are believed to tie for the most early WSU arrivals under Mike Leach (2014 class). Enrolling in January at WSU allows for a head start both in the classroom and on the gridiron. 

The six new Cougs are eligible to join WSU’s winter offseason conditioning program under strength and conditioning coach Jason Loscalzo and go through Midnight Maneuvers (Mike Leach’s famous offseason winter conditioning drills).  Plus, the biggest benefit of all: 15 spring practices. 

It used to be incoming signees would show up a couple days before fall camp but that all changed a few years back at WSU. These days, virtually everyone in a WSU signing class gets some kind of an early head start, either in January or when the bulk of the group arrives on campus in June for summer school.
