Deion Singleton visited WSU last weekend and the trip was apparently enough to seal the deal as he committed to WSU on Wednesday and faxed in his letter of intent.

Singleton is an interesting player and an example of how weird recruiting rankings can be. He played his junior season in Florida and was ranked as a 4-star prospect by both ESPN and Rivals. He then moved to Pasco, Wash. for his senior season, which caused him to drop to a 2-star prospect in Rivals's ratings. There were some reported academic question marks, but those have reportedly been cleared up, according to Britton Ransford of Wazzu Watch.

His reported offer list is long and impressive, including offers from LSU, Miami, North Carolina and others. At 6-foot-2 and 175 pounds, he has an excellent frame for a safety. He runs in the 4.5-second range according to his Rivals profile. WSU has question marks at safety, so there is a chance Singleton could compete for immediate playing time next season, assuming the reported academic issues are indeed resolved.
