Spokane QB in Cougar orbit

SPOKANE'S CONNOR HALLIDAY has shot up two inches since last year, the quarterback at Ferris High now checks in at 6-foot-5. His recruitment has taken a similar upward climb, he received his first two college scholarship offers recently and is also seeing increased interest from Washington State.

Halliday still needs to fill out, he's 6-5 and weighs 184 pounds, but schools are projecting he will do just that and they like his game.

He's been to Washington State twice over the past few weeks including a junior day event and is likely to head down again before spring ball comes to a close out on the Palouse.

"Coach (Chris) Ball sent me an email about a week ago wanting me to come down for a spring practice and to talk to coach (Todd) Sturdy again, so I might be headed down there again in April," said Halliday.

At the Cougars' junior day event last month, Halliday watched film and talked coverages with Sturdy and said he made a connection with both the Cougars' offensive coordinator and head man Paul Wulff.

"I had a great time down there," said Halliday. "Coach Sturdy was saying after watching my film he really liked how receivers came out of their breaks, and he liked my arm strength."

Halliday does not hold a WSU scholie offer but recently received his first, from Idaho and Montana.

Oregon State has also been showing interest and invited him to their summer camp in June.

"I sent my film down to them (a week ago) and they told me they'd contact me after they had a chance to look at my film," said Halliday.

Additional summer camp plans include Washington State and Boise State, with Arizona also a possibility. Stanford has also been in contact.

Halliday, who transferred from Lewis and Clark to Ferris before his junior campaign, was 170-of-286 for 2,366 yards with 20 touchdowns in 11 games this past season.
