Grasu brothers pumped up over Cougar offer

HRONISS GRASU, BROTHER of Cougar kicker Nico Grasu, made a strong impression in Pullman at the Cougs' recently concluded summer camp. And today, the 6-3, 246-pound defensive end prospect landed a crimson offer.

The fifth offer is in and second from the Pac-10 for Encino, Calif. standout defensive end Hroniss Grasu.

For Grasu, a Crespi High two-way lineman, it was his second Pac-10 offer in as many days.

Washington offered Grasu on Saturday, and on Sunday, Washington State joined the mix.

"Coach (Paul) Wulff offered me as a defensive end," said Grasu. "I'm pretty pumped, and so is my brother."

Grasu's brother, Nico, is a kicker for the Cougars, joining Washington State lore with his winning kick in overtime during the Apple Cup against the Huskies last November.

The Cougars and Huskies join UNLV, Wyoming and Nevada in offering Grasu.

As a junior at Crespi, Grasu earned First Team All-Serra League honors and was named to the Los Angeles Daily News All-Area Team and Golden State Underclass First Team.
