Which Cougar commits have not signed?

Five prospects are up in the air at the moment

Friday marks the third and final day of college football’s early signing period. Washington State has officially signed 18 players in the class of 2018, but five verbal commits have not yet inked their National Letters of Intent.

Colorado running back Max Borghi headlines this list of prospects. Borghi, a three star recruit, was reportedly offered late by Stanford. Our own Britton Ransford thinks that this is the Colorado prospect’s most likely landing place.

EDIT: Borghi signed with WSU on Friday!

The Cougs are also yet to receive a NLI from Nick Lewis, a 6 foot 9, 348 pound offensive lineman. Lewis is a three star prospect from Jacksonville, Florida. He visited Cincinnati on Dec. 1 and Colorado State back in August. Like Borghi, Lewis is a player who could flip late.

Cornerback recruit Erick Hallett has no other offers from power five programs but is yet to ink his commitment. He was however, recruited primarily by defensive coordinator Alex Grinch whose status on WSU’s coaching staff going forward is uncertain. Hallett is a three star prospect from Texas whose only other official visit was to UMass.

JUCO wide receiver Calvin Jackson is a bit of a mystery at this point. He committed back in April, but there hasn’t been much news since. Jackson played for Independence Community College in Kansas this year. He also has offers from Toledo and Colorado State and originally signed with the Rockets out of high school.

Gatlin Grisso, a three star athlete from Texas, appears fully committed to to the Cougs. A picture was tweeted out Wednesday of his signing, but WSU did not announce receiving an NLI. Perhaps this is a greyshirt situation.
