The Cougars will welcome a couple more intriguing unofficial visitors for this weekend's battle with Colorado. Neither one of these prospects currently hold offers, but could down the line. It's always good to get these kids out to Pullman and see why we all love it so much and to spread the word.
Caleb Taylor, a junior, is rated by Rivals as the No. 19 pro-style quarterback in the country for 2017. Though he is not at the top of WSU's list for next year's quarterback class, that could change down the line. Taylor announced via Twitter that he would be making the trip the Palouse this weekend.
The passer is a 6-foot-3, 205-pounder who is rated 3 stars by Rivals and hails from Plain City, Utah. He also checks in at number 9 in the ranking of Utah's top preps for next year. Taylor made a good impression at this year's Mountain West Elite camp, which boosted his stock. He has thrown for 636 yards and seven touchdowns so far this year, as well running for a couple scores. Here are Taylor's junior season highlights:
The other junior making his way to the northwest this weekend is hailing all the way from Oklahoma. Baron Odom is a 6-foot 4 210 pound tight end from Wynnewood. He is the nephew of WSU defensive quality control coach Brian Odom, and is already in Pullman:

Another uncle is Missouri defensive coordinator Barry Odom. Baron Odom is considered one of the top 10 prospects in the state of Oklahoma for 2017 by 247 sports. He is considered a highly athletic tight end who has interest from several teams in the southwest. He appears to be on the precipice of multiple offers. It would be interesting to see what WSU would see him as considering their lack of use of a tight end. Here are some highlights.
