BREAKING: 3-star OT Jonathan Nathaniel tells CF.C he's a Coug

WHEN CF.C SPOKE with Jonathan Nathaniel earlier this week, he made it pretty clear that the Cougs were his No. 1 choice with National Signing Day right around the corner. While on his official visit, the hoss decided to take things one step further, informing Cougfan.com he gave the WSU coaches some big news.

Nathaniel, currently out on the rolling hills of the Palouse, will play his college ball in Pullman.

"As of two minutes ago, I'm a Coug," Nathaniel told CF.C moments ago.

Rated a 3-star product and the No. 67 offensive tackle in the country by Scout.com, Nathaniel committed to WSU over known offers from Arizona, Hawaii, San Diego State, UNLV, Utah State and several others.

"I knew Wazzu would be my home after a few months of recruiting," he said. "There is nothing that I don't like about Pullman, Washington and I love the community. I'm ready to be a part of something greater than myself."

The newest Coug checks in at 6-5, 250-pounds, which is something head man Mike Leach and his staff have been a big fan of for quite some time. 

“They really like my frame,” Nathaniel told CF.C earlier this week. “They like how I pass block because they run the Air Raid offense, I’d say my pass pro is one of the things that really attracted them to me. The offense we run at our school, we call it the Bear Raid, it’s pretty much the (same) as the Air Raid.

“They like how athletic I am and then they like the frame that I have, I have a lot of potential to put on some good size. Mostly they like my motor, my habits on the field and my athletic ability.”

With Nathaniel now on board, WSU is now up to 25 commits for the 2017 class. For the full list of verbals, head here
