Ricky Heimuli said he received an email to call Wulff on Friday and when he did, the Wazzu coach offered him a scholarship.
He said they liked the way I looked on the film how I swarm to the ball. He also brought up my grades, he said they really liked my transcripts," said Heimuli.
Washington State recruited his cousin, DT Latu Heimuli, last year and though he ended up signing with Utah, he gave Ricky the thumbs up on Wazzu.
"He told me about the coaches and players, the atmosphere out there at Washington State. He said it's a really nice school, actually," said Heimuli.
"Ricky said he's excited about the offer because his cousin, Latu Heimuli, told him a lot of good things about Washington State," said his brother, Sefo. "So Ricky is going to take his time and get to know the coaches and the program. He's been in contact with Coach Jody Sears over e-mail and the phone."
Heimuli said he hopes to go to some summer camps but which schools have yet to be determined.
"I'm trying to get to as many camps as I can get to but I haven't decided on any yet," said Heimuli.
It doesn't sound like it will be a quick verbal decision for the 4-star prospect.
"They're all pretty much equal right now and I'm still trying to get to know the coaches more. As it gets closer to Signing Day, that's when I'll make my cutdowns," said Heimuli.
Washington State is the eighth Pac-10 school to offer, and 15th overall.
Heimuli's plans for an LDS mission aren't concrete but he said recently his plan was to play as a freshman in 2010, then go on his mission for two years, returning in 2013.
