Since Mike Leach took over and hired Joe Salave'a (also known as Coach Joe) as the defensive line coach there has been a major increase in the amount of players from the Samoan Islands or of Samoan descent to come to WSU.
Since 2012 Justin Sagote, Taylor Taliulu, Robert Barber, Destiny Vaeao, Niu Sale, Ioane Gauta, Jacob Tuivaive, Paulo Lepua, Daniel Ekuale, Lyman Faoliu, and Emitt Su'a Kaliu have been recruited to WSU. This is a substantial increase in players of Samoan decent compared to any time in my memory as a Cougars fan.
Just in the past few days Coach Joe offered recruit from the Samoan Islands, specifically Pago Pago LB Fank Luvu.
What do you think, has Coach Joe built a recruiting pipeline or is it still in process?
