WSU adds one commit, loses another

Otto Greule Jr

Wednesday was a busy day for recruiting news.

With WSU on a bye this week, the Washington State coaches are out on the road recruiting and the 2014 recruiting class was the story on Wednesday, with some good and some bad.

On the positive side the Cougars landed a verbal commitment from Feaomoengalu Tapa, a defensive lineman from Sacramento. Tapa, who goes by Ngalu, is the second defensive line commit in the 2014 class. WSU will lose Ioane Gauta next year and Toni Pole the year after, so it makes sense to see the staff put an emphasis on adding bodies on the defensive interior. Jeff has more on Tapa, including some video, here.

While Tapa is now part of WSU's 2014 recruiting class, offensive lineman Jordan Rose is not. Rose, who is from Spokane and committed in August, reportedly had his offer pulled by WSU following an off the field incident. The Cougars now have two offensive linemen verbally committed.

Football:

It's a light day for links, blame the bye week.

Ioane Gauta or Xavier Cooper make the list of 5 best D-lineman in the Pac 12? Kevin Gemmell Gauta for sure. He's been beastly. Again, it's a tough position to gauge right now.

Washington State's loss to Oregon last week was one to forget. But one that will be remembered for quite a while, due to a couple records the Cougars set and some comments made by a Duck's assistant coach afterward.
