Wazzu wins Pac-12 hat dance for three-star safety Halid Djibril

This is obviously a huge get for the WSU coaching staff.

Washington State picked up somewhat of a surprise commitment on the first day of the early signing period as Los Angeles, Calif. safety Halid Djibril will sign with the Cougs. Djibril was also considering Oregon State, USC and others.

The 6-foot-2, 185-pound safety, who could also play linebacker at the next level, took an official visit to Pullman two weeks ago, then followed that up with a visit to Corvallis last weekend. He also held offers from Utah, Boise State, Washington, Colorado and several others.

Djibril is rated three-stars and ranked the No. 51 safety in the country by the 24/7 Sports Composite. Rivals also rates Djibril three-stars and ranks him as the No. 46 safety in the country.

This is a big commitment for the Cougs, obviously, beating out several Pac-12 rivals for one of the West Coast’s top prospects. Djibril is a talent that could force his way on the field relatively quickly and he has the size and frame to do a lot of things on defense.

WSU has not yet announced his signing, but we’ll update this with more once they do.
