Monday turned out to be a big day for Geordon Porter (6-2, 175).
First, he landed an offer from Alabama, followed by running a 10.69 in the 100 meters for his school. Then, his long awaited offer from WSU arrived.
“Man, it’s amazing,” Porter said. “Any offer on any day is amazing, but two in one day is crazy. SEC and obviously a great conference in the Pac-12. I’ve been speaking with Coach Ken Wilson. He first started recruiting me in January. That’s when it all started.”
For Grant and Geordon’s dad, George Porter, you better believe he was happy about another one of his boys landing a crimson tender.
“It was exciting,” the elder Porter said. “We were hoping it would come along and we’re very elated and complimented that they’ve seen something in Grant and now his brother. It’s nice to know it’s an option to consider and we’ll strongly consider WSU. We’ll take this offer very seriously, like we have with the others.
“As a father, it’d be great if I were to go see a game and be able to watch both my kids play at the same time. At the end of the day, though, it’s up to Geordon.”
How does Grant feel about all of this? He made things pretty clear on Twitter Monday night.
“Grant was excited for me,” Geordon said. “Obviously, he wants me to go up there. He wants me to take a visit and check everything out for myself. It’s nice knowing I have the opportunity to go play with my older brother”
As for a potential visit, George said the plan is for the two of them to head up to WSU for the first Cougar home game of the season. It all depends on timing with Geordon’s football schedule this fall.
“He’ll definitely be up there for a visit to see what WSU is talking about and see his brother play,” George said.
