WSU Football Recruiting: Cougs in mix for talented Texas brothers

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

Sione and Tristan Teuhema are brothers from Keller, Texas who have been offered from some of the top programs in the nation, including Texas, Oklahoma, and LSU. Somehow, WSU is a finalist.

Resident SB Nation Texas recruiting guru Wescott Eberts wrote this piece about the brothers Teuhema, Sione and Tristan, a few weeks ago. The two prospects are in different classes, as Sione will be a member of the 2014 class with Tristan following in 2015.

"Sione, a 2014 defensive end, and Tristan, a 2015 offensive lineman, plan on attending the same school in college, limiting their choices to those schools that have extended offers to both prospects -- Texas, LSU, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Washington State."

Texas, LSU, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Washington State. One of these things is not like the others. What's interesting is that WSU is even in the conversation when traditional powers are in the mix. What's even more interesting is that Leach still has this much pull in the Lonestar State.

Sione is currently a 3-star prospect, and the #45 DE in the nation while Tristan isn't ranked, as he's still just a sophomore (he'll be a junior in the fall). Eberts points out that Tristan is the more talented player, but that both are very nice pieces to add.

Now, almost everyone expects the brothers to pick Texas when they announce their decisions tomorrow (May 30th), as most kids playing football in Texas grow up wanting to be Longhorns. Mack Brown does an excellent job at keeping the in-state talent in-state, as tough as that is in such a talent-rich football factory like Texas.

"Texas A&M has offered Tristan, but has only extended a grayshirt offer to his older brother, which has likely eliminated the Aggies from contention, as they have chosen to target other defensive ends and are in a strong position to land commitments and eventual signatures from several.

That decision by the A&M staff is part of the reason why the Texas Longhorns appear to be the overwhelming favorite, as every prediction in the 247Sports Crystal Ball has the two brothers choosing the 'Horns in a matter of days."

Lastly, if Keller HS sounds familiar, it's because both DeMaundray Woolridge and Greg Trent hailed from there, so it's not like WSU is completely foreign to that part of Texas. I don't expect some huge surprise with a WSU hat being put on, but the fact that we're even able to discuss this after the past few years makes me extremely hopeful for the Mike Leach era.
