Mike Leach will have recruits from Texas and Florida yearly.

Mike Leach's first two recruits he got to commit to WSU were from two places unfamiliar for cougar recruiting classes but very familiar to Mike Leach. Florida and Texas.

The two are Keith Ewing, leach's very first recruit, a 6-1, 215 pound ILB from Texas. Mike Leach no doubt made alot of connections and friendships with local and regional coaches in texas during his 10 year tenure at texas tech, and he might be getting some of the recruits to come to Washington State that he formerly would of recruited to Texas Tech.

Feddie Davey is a 5'10", 205 pound ILB from Miami, FL. Yes really, Miami.

Recruits going to WSU in the past few years have been from Washington, Oregon, California, Colorado and Idaho. That is, in my opinion, 2 of the 10 best states in the country for recruiting in Washington and California. Now with 2 of the 3 best states for recruiting, in Florida and Texas, Washington State now has recruiting ties to the 3 best recruiting states in the country, something not many other teams have.

Though the whole recruiting class for WSU will not be full of 25% WA, 25% CA, 25% Texas and 25% FL by any means, but we will be getting quality recruits from places we wouldn't of even tried to contact before mike leach.

Lets also take note that with the recent commits of Khalil Pettway and Alex Jackson of Culver City, CA and Culver City High School, those two are arguably WSU's best recruits this year. Both being in California is a great sign for cougar nation to see how much of an impact mike leach will have on recruiting in California, which for all schools in the northwest, is the most important state. Because the four PAC12 schools in Cali are such recruiting heavy for California, as well as the addition of San Diego State to the Big East, California will be an all out war for recruits. Its will be important for Mike Leach to get those guys from Texas, from Florida, and among the best from Washington, and WSU should be just fine in recruiting.

Note: Alex Jackson is a 5'10" WR from CA, and he runs a 4.35 40 Yard Dash, so he has alot of speed, which fits right into mike's system for what his WR's need. Khalil Pettway is a 6'3" ILB from CA and he weighs 205. He obviously needs to hit the weight room and bulk up a little bit, but he is likely with his ideal size, be the future of cougar football in terms of the Line Backers.
