Kamiak TE plans Palouse camping trip

DURING THE May Evaluation Period, each Washington State coach will visit between 90-100 high schools, talking with prep coaches and viewing countless hours of tape. One of the schools recently visited by head coach Bill Doba was Kamiak, where the Cougs plucked QB Gary Rogers a few years ago. Among the Knights' prospects this recruiting cycle drawing crimson interest is a 6-foot-4 tight end.

Skylar Stormo (6-4, 225, 4.8) participated in only one school camp last summer. This year, he plans on hitting several, including the summer youth camp at Washington State.

"I only went to the UW camp last year but this year I'm going to UW, Washington State, Oregon, Oregon State, Stanford and UCLA, all for one day," said Stormo.

About 25 minutes away in Mukilteo, Stormo said he grew up as a fan of the UW, but he's had a chance to talk with Doba this recruiting season and the Cougs have also caught his eye.

"I'd love to play for them at Washington State, I think they're a good school," said Stormo, who is awaiting his first college offer.

Schools have told Stormo what they like about him are his good hands and his speed. His camp performances, where college coaches can get an up close and personal look, could go a long ways towards that end.

"He's a hard worker that has a chance to make it to the D1 level if he continues to grow, get stronger and takes advantage of the opportunities thrown at him this fall," said Chris Fetters, Northwest Recruiting Analyst for Scout.com.

Stormo has taken unofficial trips to Oregon and Washington, and Oregon State is another school he's somewhat familiar with.

"A tight end from my school went there a couple years ago, (Pat Loney), and I talk to him every once in a while," he said.

Stormo led run-oriented Kamiak in receiving, catching 14 passes for 257 yards and three scores as a junior, earning second team all-WesCo South honors.
