The sixth recruit!

Good morning, Coug fans! WSU recruiting has proved it won’t let a pesky pandemic stand in the way of the grind- a mere five hours after Andrew Edson’s commit via twitter, someone else threw his hat in the ring.

Ryan Kershaw, an Outside Linebacker from Yakima, WA. He had several offers, one of which was apparently the Air Force, which is giving me Cheez It Bowl flashbacks.

6’2”, 220 lbs, and his Hudl lists he’s able to run and block. All very exciting!! We won’t be seeing him quite yet, he’s a 2021 grad. His highlight reel that you can see here is very jack-of-all-trades for the first few minutes. It’s great to see another in-state guy on the docket! Seeing recruits for the same graduating class as me (high school rather than college) is making me feel old. But that’s a personal matter.

I do worry that his twitter ends in 2002 (you can find him @ ryanjk2002), which might lead me to believe that he was born in that year, which confuses my brain as I assumed no one could ever be born in the 2000s. I know that doesn’t make sense, but roll with me here.

Regardless, welcome aboard to all the new commits! Another flag was tweeted an hour ago, so keep your eyes peeled!

Rolo’s old crimson flags have been such a highlight for me during quarantine- it’s become a little game between my dad and I of who spots it first. Remember how we talked about finding new hobbies? I quite like this one. I hope everyone is staying safe, and not to mix my media here- but I hope we’re on the home stretch.
