Alec Kuzmack, a three-star offensive tackle from Eagle, Idaho, is the latest highly regarded prospect to verbally commit to Washington State in the 2017 recruiting class.
Kuzmack, who announced his intentions to play for Mike Leach, Clay McGuire and staff on Twitter, picked the Cougars over offers from Boise State and Colorado State.
“First off, I’d like to thank God for blessing me with all these opportunities, and my coaches and friends for support,” Kuzmack tweeted. “I’d also like to thank all the schools that recruited me. After talking it over with my family, I have decided to take my talents to Washington State.”
The 6-foot-5, 285-pound offensive tackle is the the No. 1 overall prospect from the state of Idaho in the 2017 class and the No. 81 offensive tackle in the country, according to the 24/7 Sports Composite. Scout ranks Kuzmack the No. 15 offensive tackle in the West.
Kuzmack, who unofficially visited Washington State in April, also plays basketball at Eagle High School, and perfectly fits the mold of a WSU tackle — a tall, flat-bellied, athletic lineman. Kuzmack lined up at right tackle his junior season, which you can view below.
Kuzmack is the third offensive lineman to verbally commit to WSU in the 2017 class joining three-star tackle Dontae Powell and junior college tackle George Moore, who pledged last month. The Cougs now have a total of 10 verbal commits this cycle, seven of whom are on the offensive side.
