WSU continues work on building 2021 recruiting class

The most recent recruiting dead period ended on Saturday which meant teams could once again host recruits on campus. WSU wasted no time getting some top 2021 targets on campus and those clamoring for more in-state recruiting will be happy.

That would be 4-star wide receiver Junior Alexander, 4-star wide receiver Jabez Tinae and 3-star wide receiver Reed Shumpert all from Kennedy Catholic high school.

The players seemed to enjoy the visit - as players typically do.

“The visit was awesome,” Tinae said, via Huffman’s recap. “The coaching staff gave us a warm welcome and really made us feel special. I could easily tell that they genuinely want us to be Cougs.”

Class of 2020 signee Alphonse Oywak appears to approve.

Even Nick Rolovich got in on the photos.

One of the first things the new coaching staff did was start handing out — or in some cases re-affirming — 2021 offers. That includes with Alexander and Tinae. They are yet to land their first 2021 commitment, but in previous years that tends to start around April and fill up through the summer.

Only 289 days until early signing day!
