NCAA Football: Washington State at Oregon State Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

Ya’ll tired of postponement news? Good, because your Washington State Cougars just received a commitment from three-star wide receiver Joshua Meredith out of Mater Dei Catholic High School in Chula Vista, Calif. Meredith announced his decision yesterday:

Meredith was originally committed to Fresno State but received a WSU offer on Thursday. His Fresno-to-WSU flip was swift. WSU was Meredith’s only P5 offer, and in addition to Fresno State, he had G5 offers from New Mexico State and UNLV. He also had some FBS offers, including one from the Idaho Vandals. Luckily for him he can still visit the Idaho campus from time to time.

Meredith stands six feet tall and checks in at 170 pounds, according to 247sports.com. Greg Biggins of 247sports.com had this to say earlier this summer:

“We had a chance to see some of his training videos this spring and he’s an explosive kid who can really run. He runs well after the catch and projects as a slot receiver and should be a very tough cover for opposing corners because of his quickness and ability to get in and out of his breaks.

“He’s a smooth route runner as well who can get in and out of his breaks and catches the ball very well. He shows good body control, catches the ball well through contact and shows no fear going across the middle. His ability to make big plays with the ball in his hands projects well in the return game as well and we could see him returning punts and kicks at the next level.”

It appears Meredith played at Valhalla High School his junior year:

Meredith is WSU’s 18th known commitment for the class of 2021.
