As long-time Cougar watchers know, the recruiting hunting grounds for WSU north of the border are not bountiful but usually fruitful. Hank Grenda, Rob Meier, Rueben Mayes, Brian Forde, Don Sweet, Ted Gerela, Glenn Harper, and the Pimiskern brothers are among the Canadians who have made hay at Ol' Wazzu over the years. That pipeline of talent is continuing in a BIG way.

OVER THE PAST six months I've read countless stories on Cougfan.com about football prospects who have tripped to WSU and returned home talking about the "family atmosphere" in Pullman. Yesterday's signing of letters of intent put an exclamation point on that sentiment. In so many ways, "WE ARE FAMILY" should be the motto of Cougar football.
