Olympia High teammates WR Henry Eaddy and WR Isiah Myers, and Dr. Phillips High LB Darryl Monroe, made a little history on Tuesday afternoon, along with Spencer Waseem who verballed to WSU on Sunday.
"All three did it. And that makes four Florida boys now at Washington State...and all four have speed. These are the first four guys, besides Keith Rivers (USC), who have ever committed to a Pac-10 program from Central Florida," said Lorenzo Wood, who helps train and coach the trio. Wood, who is Myers' dad, was the architect in helping to organize the unofficial visit to Wazzu and is in Pullman with the players.
In a nutshell, said Wood, the players were blown away by the Washington State coaching staff -- Paul Wulff and Chris Ball in particular.
"I know recruiters, and I know coaches, and I know when they're being less than truthful. And this guy here, coach Wulff, he is genuine. And coach Ball did just an awesome job. Listen, I've been around a long time...let me tell you, I've talked to a lot of recruiters and there aren't many as genuine as coach Ball... I've talked to 50-60 recruiters and I can only think of two who are on top of it as much as coach Ball," said Wood.
Myers (No. 29), Monroe (No. 34), and Eaddy (No. 39), are all members of the latest Orlando Sentinel's 2011 Central Florida Super60.
"They're loving it, they are loving it up there, and that's why all three committed," said Wood.
