It seemed Kyle Smith was done building his 2020 recruiting class in February when guard Jefferson Koulibaly committed to the Cougars. It turns out Smith was not done. On Saturday Smith and the Cougars added a fourth member to the 2020 recruiting class when 4-star center Dishon Jackson committed.

Jackson is ranked as a 4-star recruit and the No. 142 player in the 2020 according to 24/7 Sports. He is the No. 188 player int eh class according to the composite rankings. Landing top 200 recruits does not suck. Landing top 200 big man recruits REALLY does not suck.

On Twitter, Theo Lawson noted Jackson was the ninth-rated recruit in WSU history according to 24/7s rankings. Of the eight ranked ahead of him, the 6-foot- 10 Jackson joins Brock Motum as the only players taller than 6-foot-7.

The Cougs now have a pair of guards and a pair of 6-foot-10 post players coming in the 2020 class. There are some scholarship issues to work out, the Cougs only had three available scholarships, but that tends to work itself out with player movement during the summer.

Having too many good recruits is a nice problem to have for a change.
