Gonzaga Prep's Sankey (5-11, 190, 4.46), who was recently nominated to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl football game, was in Pullman recently, one of a number of trips he's made to Wazzu over the past year or so.
"I got there just as the game was starting but afterwards I got to talk to all the coaches. I always get a good feeling when I go there, it's like family," said Sankey.
SANKEY SAID he might next head back to Pullman in June, when WSU starts up their youth camp events.
"And they said they'll be coming by my school (this month) to talk to my coach," he said.
Which college camps he participates in this summer, however, remains to be decided.
"I'm not sure yet. I know I want to go to an Under-Armor camp with my cousin in Chicago. But I'm not sure which other ones I'm going to go to," said Sankey.
SANKEY SAID THINGS remained the same as far as his commitment to WSU -- that he was still committed to Washington State but was also looking around at what other schools had to offer, and that he hoped to visit some schools this summer.
Apart from WSU, Sankey said he's been hearing most from Minnesota, Boise State, Washington and Arizona State. He recently took in the spring game over in Seattle.
"It was a good experience. I talked to (running backs coach) Joel Thomas about how the offense was run. He said I'm a good 'back, he'd like to have me maybe come to their summer camp and that he'd like to make me a Dawg," said Sankey.
TRACK AND FIELD SEASON is coming to a close and Sankey said he's qualified for districts. His personal best in the 100-m is 11.2.
Meanwhile, has he heard of any college coaches coming by Gonzaga Prep during the May Evaluation period?
"The only schools that came by so far have been WSU and UW," said Sankey.
Of the 400-plus nominees, 90 will ultimately be selected and invited to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
At WSU, Sankey feels family vibe
