WSU football recruiting: OL Liam Ryan commits to Washington State

The big framed offensive lineman from Southern California gives his verbal commitment to the WSU coaching staff.

Another official visitors weekend, another verbal commitment for the Washington State Cougars. Teh Cougs continue to hoard offensive lineman in this class, this time with Liam Ryan's verbal pledge, according to our own Britton Ransford. The Damien High School lineman had offers from numerous schools, including Fresno State, San Jose State, Nevada and New Mexico.

The 6'6", 270 pound tackle from La Verne, California is not rated by Rivals and Scout pegs him as a two-star player.  He has the height Mike Leach loves in his offensive lineman for those wide splits and at 78 inches tall, he certainly has the frame to pack on at least another 40 pounds.

He's not the most fleet of foot lineman you'll see but Ryan certainly seems to play with a chip on his shoulder. In his highlight video below, you can see him finish his blocks and he does hit like a wall when he's pulling across a formation.  He stays high on blocks he need to but he gets his defenders on their back and then keeps them there.

Ryan is the fourth offensive line commitment in the 2016 class for WSU and they now have 22 spots in the 25 player class spoken for. Some decommits could come but WSU's class is also to maximum capacity about two months ahead of national signing day.
