Jarrett Kingston, a lineman prospect from NorCal, verbally commits to Wazzu

New, 6 comments

The 6-foot-5, 250-pounder — unranked by major recruiting services — has seen his recruitment soar over the last week.

It was just two days ago that Jarrett Kingston, an athlete from Anderson, Calif., received an offer from Washington State. Now, he’s a Coug.

The 6-foot-5, 250-pounder, who also picked up tenders from San Diego State and Nevada over the last 24 hours, took to Twitter to announce his verbal commitment.

Relatively new to the recruiting scene, Kingston has yet to be rated by major recruiting services, though he did attend several camps this summer, including Washington’s last month. The Huskies and Colorado have shown interest, however they have yet to offer.

What we do know about Kingston is that he’s an extremely athletic prospect, fitting the mold we’ve seen the WSU coaching staff recruit in recent years. As a junior at Anderson High School last season, Kingston earned first-team All-Northern Section honors after racking up 56 tackles, 20 tackles-for-loss and 8.5 sacks.

He also played tight end for Anderson, but it’s unclear at this time whether he’ll line up on the defensive line or offensive line on the Palouse. Either way, his clips are impressive.

Update: Perhaps this tweet gives us a clue where he’s going to play.

With Kingston now in the fold, Washington State now holds 12 verbal commitments in the 2018 recruiting class.
