PULLMAN — Mike Leach’s synopsis of his 2017 Cougar signing class: “This class we really wanted to focus on speed, and take tall guys.” Arguably the loudest reaction on social media from WSU fans came from Nebraska’s disappointment, as 4-star stop-and-go WR Jamire Calvin out of Los Angeles went crimson. It made perfect sense to Leach. “I can’t see why he’d go anywhere else with who’s throwing it to you,” said the WSU head man.

IF IT SEEMS a number of programs are making a run at Cougar verbal commits lately, it's because they are. Take 3-star future Cougar offensive tackle Abe Lucas, he landed a new Pac-12 offer from Cal on Thursday night. What does it mean for the in-state WSU pledge out of Everett's Archbishop High? CF.C asked Lucas to find out.
MIKE LEACH has hired former Minnesota assistant Jeff Phelps as the Cougs’ new defensive line coach, multiple sources with knowledge tell Cougfan.com. An official announcement from WSU may not come for several days, as is customary once an agreement in principle is reached, but it had become increasingly clear to CF.C message boarders on Twitter that Phelps was heading to Washington State.
EARLY EVENING MANEUVERS? It just doesn’t have the same ring to it. The NCAA today unanimously passed a rule that would impact the time frame Mike Leach can run Midnight Maneuvers, the two-week winter conditioning drills set to kick off this year on Jan. 29 at Washington State.
WITH SIGNING DAY approaching fast, Washington State fans might have forgotten about another key offseason event: Midnight Maneuvers.

BLINK AND YOU missed it. Late Wednesday night, an elite prospect in the Scout 100 tweeted out he had just received a new offer from Washington State. Could an official visit to WSU to see Mike Leach and Co. be coming soon? The offer is compelling for all the usual reasons, and it would be a major coup were WSU to sign him. But there’s something else that makes this Cougar offer especially noteworthy.
