Stars, stars, stars.

In 10 days, Washington State will make its 2015 signing class official. When it does, WSU is expected to ink one of the better classes -- on paper at least -- in school history. According to Rivals rankings, the Cougars currently have four four-star prospects committed. For some schools, that's merely a drop in the bucket. For WSU that's a significant development from a school that often doesn't sign any four-stars in a class.

Recruiting rankings and stars don't always tell the full story, but today they do. At least for trivia.

Q1: According to Rivals rankings, WSU has signed 14 players rated 4-stars or higher since 2002. Name the last signed 4-star prospect at each position. Note that this is signed prospects on national signing day only and does not include transfers.

QB -
RB -
WR -
TE -
OL -
DL -
LB - N/A
DB -

Q2: When was the last time WSU signed more than two four-star prospects in a class and who did the Cougars sign?

Now obviously these questions would be very easy to look up. That would be lame. Don't be lame, get Direct TV.
