Dorian Gerald

Four of the seven known junior college offers extended by Wazzu have something in common

MIKE LEACH tends to be judicious when it comes to offering junior college players -- there are only seven known JUCO players who have been offered by the Cougs. But of those seven rides by Washington State to junior college prospects, four have something in common.

They play on the defensive line.

WSU’s offer to Jonathan Lolohea stands out for a couple reasons.  He’s a 6-3, 315-pound defensive tackle type and WSU has moved more towards the smaller, quick defensive linemen. So they must really like Lolohea.  It's not hard to see why on his tape, he moves very well for his size. Secondly, he’s not from the usual junior colleges WSU tends to recruit, hailing from Copiah-Lincoln Community College in Mississippi (but he spent this past season at Los Angeles Valley College).

The Cougs have offered a pair of DEs out of Arizona Western.  Mar'Quess Daniels checks in at 6-3, 230 pounds while Azur Kamara is 6-4, 225.

Last but certainly not least: Washington State has also offered Dorian Gerald, a 6-3, 250-pound DE wrecking ball at College of the Canyons (pictured above). He was tied for fourth among state JUCO players with 12 sacks this past season. He told CF.C earlier this spring he’s a big fan of WSU.

All four of the JUCO d-line prospects have other offers from Pac-12 schools.

The other known junior college offers extended by Washington State are to CB Jason Thomas (5-11, 170) and safety Manase Time (6-0, 205) out of Golden West and Calvin Jackson, a 5-10, 170-pounder out of Independence who verbally committed to WSU in April
