WSU family strikes chord w/versatile DB Hosea

THE SAFETY AND CORNER positions aren't interchangeable in the defensive backfield, they require differing, requisite skill sets. But there are a few players who do have both and can indeed play either/or, and one of them looks to be Cougar commit Asi Hosea out of Utah. His visit to Washington State this past weekend solidified his decision to go crimson and gray.

Gut reaction:
"The whole feeling of being there helped me a lot and let me know this is the place I really wanted to be at for my four or five years," said Hosea.

The Cougar players:
"Bonding with the players there, it really has a great impact on me. I loved the atmosphere," said Hosea.

Out on the Palouse:
"They had me go around to a lot of the academic people, showed me around campus, showed me around to all the players there at my position. And we went and ate -- a lot. We went to coach Wulff's house and ate dinner with all the was a crazy experience," said Hosea.

Safety or corner?
"I sat with coach Jody and coach Ball and they showed me some plays that I'd be learning this year, and they showed me both positions I could be playing this year, they showed me film on both safety and corner," said Hosea.

What dad thought:
"My dad also thinks it's a great decision for me, choosing Washington State. He linked up with the coaches pretty well and he liked the players, they were all honest in what they were saying to my dad so he really liked it," said Hosea.

Final thought:
"What I liked was that they were really honest. They were family traditional, with the values, and they stay close with the players even after they're gone and graduated. And I could see that going on with the players and the coaches there," said Hosea.
