Linebacker RJ Stone commits to WSU

New, 4 comments

He fits the Speed D profile to a T.

The Washington State Cougars picked up a commitment from the latest candidate for the #SpeedD when RJ Stone announced on Monday his intention to play for WSU.

Stone is rated a composite three-star prospect, and he picked the Cougs over the Arizona State Sun Devils following his official visit to Pullman a couple of weekends ago. He also reportedly held Pac-12 offers from the Utah Utes and Oregon State Beavers, as well as most of the Mountain West Conference.

He’s listed as a defensive end by 247, but Stone’s physical dimensions are on the lighter side — just 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds — which fit right in with WSU’s philosophy of recruiting speed first and foremost on that side of the ball. In fact, when you watch his highlights, he certainly looks like someone who would fit right in at Rush linebacker:

Stone is the second player in this class from Valley Christian High School, joining defensive back D’Angelo McKenzie. He’s the 22nd commitment to this class, as reflected in the following table. You can always find the most up-to-date version of the table here.
