Hot Cougar Action: Ken Bone lands a commit

Ikenna Iroegbu verbally committed to WSU on Monday

James Snook-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

It's not often we talk basketball during the month of October, but Ken Bone landing his first verbal commitment of the 2013 class will change that.

On Monday, Ikenna Iroegbu, the younger brother of former WSU walk-on Chuks Iroegbu, took to Twitter to announce his verbal commitment to WSU.

Iroegbu is rated as a 4-star recruit and the No. 100 player overall in the class of 2013 by Here is what Jeff Borzello of CBS Sports has to say about Iroegbu:

Iroegbu, a 6-foot-1 native of California who plays at Oak Hill Academy (Va.), is extremely quick and has the ability to get into the lane against most defenders. He loves to push the ball in transition and is extremely tough to slow down when attacking the basket with momentum. Moreover, Iroegbu has improved his outside shot and is very difficult to guard when his shot is falling.

He is Washington State's first commitment in the class of 2013. Virginia Tech was also involved with Iroegbu before he committed.

At the very least, Curtis Allen is excited about it.

You can find some of Iroegbu's highlights right here and right here.
