Back from WSU visit

WASHINGTON STATE IS looking to potentially bring in a couple junior college offensive linemen to shore up the Cougar front lines in 2010. One who holds a crimson offer, tendered he says because of his athleticism and aggressiveness, was in Pullman this past weekend.

David Gonzales (6-6, 275, 5.0) is a man of few words and does most of his talking on the field. He did however speak long enough to give the Washington State trip two thumbs up.

"It went really good," said Gonzales. "I thought it was a good atmosphere, a really nice place, definitely good facilities. It was a place where I could see myself. It was a pretty good visit."

Gonzales said he had good discussions with several members of the coaching staff during the weekend.

"It seemed to me they're doing a pretty good job rebuilding the program. It's definitely a bunch of athletic guys, the younger classes. I've also talked to some people outside the program and they think they're going to be good in the next couple years," said Gonzales.

He also got the lay of the land from the Coug players.

"I got to talk to a bunch of them and they all agree, along with the coaches, that they're turning things around. They're a young team and in the next couple years or so, it's going to be pretty good," said Gonzales.

GONZALES WILL next trip to Tennessee. The Vols haven't offered him yet but have hinted an offer might be forthcoming this weekend.

The signing period for mid-year junior college transfers begins Dec. 16, and then runs through Jan. 15.
