Washington State signed its top recruit, quarterback Tyler Bruggman, after a bit of drama Wednesday.
Various media reports said Arizona State made a late pitch to the four-star prospect from Phoenix. Washington State coach Mike Leach said he did not know if that was true, but said he had little doubt that the 6-foot-2, 202-pound Bruggman would sign with the Cougars. Bruggman was the only four-star recruit in Leach's second recruiting class.
Leach pronounced himself happy with a class that was heavy on offensive and defensive linemen.
The Cougars recruited heavily in Washington and Southern California. Scout.com rated their recruiting class 39th in the nation Wednesday.

ONE FACT SHOULD be clear 10 games into Pac-12 play: Washington State cannot afford mediocre performances from senior center Brock Motum. The Cougars stayed close – and even led at times despite Motum going more than 13 minutes without points to start the game – but it was not enough as the Cougars lost 72-68 on Thursday at USC.
