Cougar assistant coaches Eric Mele, Jim Mastro, Jeff Phelps, Clay McGuire and Derek Sage were working the Portland camp on Friday, recruits told CF.C, with WSU offering o-line prospect Marco Brewer (pictured above) after his camp performance. WSU also offered another o-lineman after the camp: 2019 in-state prospect Nathaniel Kalepo out of Rainier Beach.
WSU offerees M.J. Cunningham and Eli’jah Winston out of Portland were also at the camp, as was rising 2019 QB Dylan Morris out of Graham-Kapowsin. Other Pac-12 schools in attendance in Portland were Oregon State, UCLA, Cal and Utah.
A pair of WSU assistant coaches, Phelps and Ken Wilson, were at The Kumite Showcase on Saturday at Azusa Pacific in California and it is believed also a second camp event Sunday at Azusa Pacific. The Kumite is sponsored by Prime Time Polynesian and WSU, Stanford, UCLA, USC, Utah and Oregon State all sent coaches to work the event.
Cougar coaches were also at the Elite Kat Camp at Sam Houston State in Texas on Saturday, along with Michigan and others. ASU was the only other Pac-12 school believed to be in Huntsville, about an hour north of Houston.
NEXT UP: Cougar coaches figure to be spread out this coming week. The Cougs will likely have a strong presence at the Redlands Football Camp near Los Angeles on June 9. Colorado, Washington, Oregon and Arizona are other schools are also expected to be on hand.
It is believed WSU coaches will also be working the Hawaii Elite Camp at UH. That event will be held Friday and Saturday, June 9 and 10. USC and UW are also expected to send coaches to Hawaii.
WSU coaches will be in Texas as well. WSU will work the Texas A&M Commerce camp either June 10 or June 17. Other Pac-12 schools planning to be in attendance include UW, Utah, Arizona and Colorado.
Cougar coaches are also scheduled to be at the Rising Stars camp at Sacramento State that takes place on June 17.
The All-Poly camp is scheduled to take place June 15-17 but the location has yet to be made official. Word around the water cooler is that the All-Poly camp is likely to take place at Utah, thereby allowing WSU and other schools to serve as guest coaches. New NCAA rules this year dictate satellite camps have to be held at a university in order for college coaches to take part.
Also for that reason, The NW Elite Camp has been rescheduled, it will now be held on June 16 (was June 2) with the location to be determined.
There are potential other satellite camps in the works as well for WSU. We’ll let you know what we hear in the coming days and weeks.
Meanwhile, Washington State’s camp, according to WSU official site, has been moved this year to July 29. Previously, it had been held in early June.
One other rules change this year is to limit schools to 10 days of satellite camps.
