WSU has brought in a lot of  quality prospects via their walk-on program under Mike Leach -- Luke Falk, Parker Henry, and Joe Dahl just name of few. They appear to have a found another gem for this year’s recruiting class with the commitment on Wednesday of Bellarmine Prep linebacker Eric Glueck to walk on next year.

The 6-foot-3, 225-pound inside linebacker is rated as a three-star recruit who had a few offers from Ivy League schools. He was also recruited as a preferred walk-on by UW. Glueck is a two-time all-city selection as a sophomore and junior. He could prove to be quite the coup for area recruiter Eric Mele. Here are some highlights of Glueck.

In other recruiting news, it looks like December 4th is going to be the first big recruiting weekend of the year. This week, two un-committed prospects announced they are checking out the Palouse that weekend. Las Vegas offensive tackle Keenen King and junior college linebacker AJ Hotchkins will be heading to God’s country.

King is a three-star prospect who checks in 6-4 and 285 pounds. He boast offers from Arizona State, Boise State and Colorado, among others. Hopefully this visit will seal the deal with King. Here are some highlights of the road grader, who is considered one of the top ten prospects in the state of Nevada.

Hotchkins is from Riverside City College, which is becoming quite the pipeline for WSU. Jeremiah Mitchell and Treshon Broughton both came out this program, coached by the father of Cougar linebacker Greg Hoyd. The 6-foot/230-pound uber-prospect boasts over 15 offers from such programs as Cal, Oregon, Arizona and Arkansas. Based on his film, he seems like the type of player who could have Shalom Luani-type impact for the Cougars next year were he to sign. Here are the highlights, which are a must-watch.
