During the Mike Leach tenure at WSU, he has been fairly picky about extending offers to prep quarterbacks. So it has been somewhat surprising to see five offers extended in the past few weeks. We’ve already taken a look at Tyler Lytle and Connor Neville, so let’s see what the three new offers in the past week bring to the table.
Dylan McCaffrey is a 2017 prospect out of Highlands Ranch, Co. The son of former NFL great Ed McCaffrey is a big-time prospect who is ranked by 247sports.com as the fourth best pro-style quarterback in the country. He has already received offers from Michigan, UCLA, Washington and Missouri among others. The 6-foot-5 195 pounder has only thrown 2 interceptions in 104 attempts this year. Here is some video of McCaffrey:
2018 prospect Jacob Sirmon is an in-state kid out of Bothell. The nephew of NFL linebacker Peter Sirmon is a 4-star recruit who holds offers from WSU and UW. I'm sure Mike Leach would love to bring him to Pullman. Check out his highlights:
The Cougars also are getting started early on the 2018 class with an offer to signal-caller Cameron Rising out of Newbury Park, Ca. The 6-foot-3 Rising has thrown for 18 touchdowns in his last three games as a high school sophomore. According to the LA times the Cougars have also offered his older brother Tyson who is 290-pound lineman at Ventura College. WSU is the first offer for the younger Rising, but you can bet it won’t be his last. The older brother is no slouch himself with 8 offers including Colorado. According to Cougfan.com, WSU is in his top 3 and he hopes to make a decision soon. Here are some highlights of the brothers.
Speaking of big lineman, the Cougars were the first to offer in-state 2017 hoss Cody Kanouse. Kanouse is out of Peninsula High School in Gig Harbor and checks in 6-foot-7 280 pounds, ideal size for the offensive tackle position. Northwest Prep Report said the Kanouse was very impressive in the various camps he attended over the summer. Expect him to be one of the more highly-sought Evergreen State recruits in the coming year. Here are some of Cody’s highlights:
To wrap it up we have some bad news as one of the Cougars 2016 targets in California is now off the board. Lawrence White IV, a defensive back out of Bakersfield, has committed to Iowa State. Ah well, you can’t win them all.
