Tacoma standout to attend WSU junior day

HE HAS A Cougar offer and he's been to Washington State recently to take in a hoops game. He'll be taking another unofficial visit out to the Palouse this weekend, to take part in the Cougars' junior day.

Tacoma's Rahmel Dockery (5-9, 161) seems like a corner at the next level, but don't rule out receiver just yet.

"Wazzu is talking about wide receiver too," said Dockery.

Dockery had a breakout season at Curtis his junior year, with 1,077 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns on 36 receptions. He also caused opponents problems on kickoff and punt returns.

DOCKERY SAID HE already has a strong connection with WSU assistant and area recruiter Mike Levenseller.

"I went down there to one of their basketball games a few weeks ago. We've talked a lot," said Dockery.

Dockery last May became the first athlete in the history of the West Central District to clear 7 feet in the high jump, and the first sophomore in all of Washington to accomplish that feat since 1977.

Dockery's cousin, Roy Miller, was drafted by Tampa Bay out of Texas last year, and Dockery said he'd like to follow in his NFL footsteps.

"I talk to him about every week. He's helping me, he got the coach at Texas and me connected," said Dockery.

Other schools showing interest in Dockery include Oregon, Oregon State, UCLA, Stanford and Washington.
