Rahshead Johnson commits to USC

WSU Athletic Communications

The 4-star athlete will apparently not be taking his talents to Pullman.

A big piece came off WSU's recruiting board on Saturday with Rahshead Johnson committing to USC. The 4-star wide receiver/cornerback received an offer from Steve Sarkisian and the Trojans and didn't waste any time verbally committing.

The Cougars have offered a number of players who have gone elsewhere, but Johnson's case is a little different. Why? Well, as it turns out, had Johnson not received a USC offer, it sounds like he would have wound up at WSU.

Johnson would have been an excellent addition to the 2014 class, but the Cougars will now move on to other targets. The picture should continue to clear up, day-by-day, with signing day now just a month away.

"Coach Sark offered me about 20 minutes ago and I accepted," said Johnson. "They were telling me to hold tight, and that I would get the offer in January.

Cougars looking for more points - Spokesman.com - Jan. 5, 2014
The Washington State men’s basketball team has a tall task ahead of it, and it has nothing to do with its opponent today, Arizona State. For the Cougars (7-6, 0-1 Pac-12) to have a shot at a road win over the Sun Devils (11-3, 0-1 Pac-12) they must first recover from a historically bad offensive performance at Arizona on Thursday.

WSU tries to salvage road swing at Arizona State - SportsLink - Spokesman.com - Jan. 4, 2014
Washington State's 60-25 loss at Arizona on Thursday certainly wasn't ideal. But in a conference like the Pac-12, a road split is always a success, no matter how bad the loss was. With a win tomorrow at Arizona State, the Cougars will still come out of the weekend ahead.

Good, bad, ugly local basketball - Spokesman.com - Jan. 5, 2014
WSU is dealing with injury problems – and had to face the No. 1 team in the nation on its home court. The results were not pretty. Ugly is probably a better word.
