Scandrick said coach Doba was satisfied with the arrangement, telling him he wants the Los Al product to be sure Washington State is where he wants to be.

"I only had one school under my belt for a visit, and coach Doba was okay (with me) needing another visit to compare. So we pretty much decided on that."

On the year for Los Al, Scandrick caught 50 passes for 823 yards with 9 TDs. He also carried the ball for 183 yards on 24 carries, scoring twice.
