BREAKING: Wulff lands another 3-star commit

ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER three-star prospect goes crimson. He's got some serious quicks, he's rated as one of the top ten safety prospects in the state of California and on Tuesday, after it had come down in the end to a decision between Washington State and Nebraska, he made the call to head to the Palouse.

Anthony Carpenter, a three star safety out of Junipero Serra High, is headed to WSU.

"I just committed to Washington State," said Carpenter.

The 6-1, 185-pound safety out of Gardena, Calif., about 15 minutes outside L.A., had an in-home visit last week with area recruiting coach Steve Broussard that served as the catalyst.

"I've been thinking about it for the past couple weeks...the players were really cool and I really like the coaches there," said Carpenter.

Carpenter, who will bring with him to the Palouse some impressive quicks, said he talked to both Broussard and Wulff on Tuesday afternoon to tell them he was coming to the Palouse.

"Coach Broussard was excited and coach Wulff, he said I just made his day," said Carpenter.

Playing a large role in Carpenter's decision was his official visit to Wazzu. Carpenter tripped to Pullman back during Week 10 when the Cougs played Arizona and he and his parents, who also made the trip, came away beaming about WSU.

"On my trip, I really liked the family atmosphere," said Carpenter.

In addition to Nebraska, Oregon State had also offered Carpenter.

CARPENTER THIS SEASON racked up 60 tackles (30 solo) with 1 sack and 1 interception for a 13-1 Serra team. He also had 18 carries for 259 yards, a 14.4 average.
