Mike Leach talks signing day, WSU in chat with fans

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

The majority of LOIs have rolled in so Mike Leach took a few minutes out of his busy schedule to conduct an online chat with fans. Leach discussed a few of the prospects, where WSU stands and gravy.

College coaches are not permitted to discuss recruits publicly until they sign their letter of intent so with most of WSU's 2013 recruiting class signed, sealed and delivered Mike Leach was able to make his first public comments.

Those comments came in an online chat with fans on WSU's website. As you would expect from a chat, not many of the answers went into great detail. However, as he always does, Leach was able to interject a random tidbit or two. Here is a closer look at some of the highlights.

Robert (Pullman): Our offensive and defensive lines were developing as the season progressed. How will these new guys help our lines?

Mike Leach: Robert, we placed a great emphasis on our lines this year. We believe games are won and lost in the trenches and this will always be an area of high importance to us. It's hard to predict exactly who will help us the quickest on the lines. But we are excited about all of them.

Thomas (Lynnwood): Love the linemen in this class,have you ever worked with a guy as big as Cody O'Connell?

Mike Leach: Thomas, when you consider the combination of height and weight not as big as Cody. I have worked with one or two that are heavier.

Jay (Kennewick): Do you go into recruiting with set numbers in mind as far as positions go, or is it more of a 'best-available' situation when it comes to signing kids?

Mike Leach: Jay, typically specific positions and needs. On rare occasions you may pay special attention to a key difference maker

And the highlight of the chat.

Greg (Vancouver): Who's the better cook in the family? You or Sharon?

Mike Leach: Sharon by far except for gravy. Which I dominate.

How long until WSU starts selling Mike Leach gravy?
