Ernie Kent and his coaching staff have filled in three of WSU's open roster spots and a fourth spot could be filled today. Highly-touted guard Ahmaad Rorie from Tacoma will announce his college decision at a 10 a.m. PT school assembly. WSU is thought to be in the mix, along with Washington, Oregon, Missouri and others.
Tacoma (Wash.) PG Ahmaad Rorie will announce his college decision at 10 a.m. tomorrow during a school assembly, says @LC_Recruiting.— WazzuWatch.com (@WazzuWatch) May 21, 2014
Rorie is ranked as a 4-star point guard by Scout and 24/7 Sports while he checks in with three stars on Rivals. He originally committed and signed with California, but asked out of his LOI when Mike Montgomery retired. WSU got involved after he was released by Cal and Rorie took a trip to Pullman. He was originally planning to announce on Wednesday, the final day of the early signing period, but pushed the decision back a day. Oregon has picked up its interest recently and Rorie tripped to Eugene earlier this week.
While the Cougars have apparently added talent players during the late signing period, Rorie would be the most touted. He's a fringe top 100 recruit and would be an excellent feather in Kent's hypothetical cap if the Cougars were able to beat out the Northwest rivals for him.
If you are wondering how Rorie can make a decision even though the late signing period ended on Wednesday, he simply won't sign a Letter of Intent. He would instead sign financial aid papers, which he may have had to do anyway because he'd already signed a LOI with Cal.
We'll find out where he's headed soon enough.
