Cougar fans were starting to worry WSU’s recruiting efforts as they were one of the only team’s in the country with 0 commits going into May. Well worry no more as head coach Nick Rolovich has reeled in three new commitments in the past couple weeks. The latest new Cougar is interior lineman Brock Dieu.

Dieu hails from Casteel High School in Queen Creek AZ which is also the alma mater of WSU quarterback Gunnar Cruz. The 6-foot-2 278 pounder is extremely smart and has been offered by five Ivy League schools. His play on the field impressed as well with offers from Oregon, ASU and Boise State.

Dieu is listed as three star recruit by 247sports.com and told the website that his primary reasons for his decision to go to Pullman were the relationship he built with new WSU offensive line coach Mark Weber and the ability to major in Mechanical Engineering. Safeties coach Mark Banker is the primary recruiter for the state of Arizona so props to him as well.

Here are some highlights of Dieu:

Dieu’s size and smarts scream the profile of a future Center for WSU’s o-line. It’s very promising that the Cougar staff was able to lure him away from in-state ASU and their offensive line coach Kevin Mawae who is one of the greatest centers of all time.
