HE’S ALREADY MASSIVE, checking in at 6-foot-8 and 350 pounds and he's still just a junior in high school. He holds an offer from Mike Leach, and has already taken two unofficial visits to Washington State this spring. Is a Cougar camp visit in late June also on tap?

THE HIRING OF offensive guru Mike Leach has attracted unprecedented amounts of offseason media attention to the Washington State football program, and the overwhelming majority of that attention has been positive. That trend continued when SportingNews.com’s Steve Greenberg handed out his national Spring Football Awards.
WE LEARNED A lot about Mike Leach in his first spring at WSU over 15 practice sessions. He can install a prolific offense in but four days. He doesn’t yell much, dishing out both praise and disapproval in calm, measured tones. And had he been born earlier, he would have made one helluva NASA man back in the 1960s.
MIKE LEACH HAS OFFERED an intriguing prospect out of the state of Idaho. The WSU area recruiter is Jeff Choate, whose stock as a recruiter soared in recent days. Choate, you see, recruited five guys for Boise State that got picked in the NFL Draft -- two were first-rounders. Two were from Idaho. Which leads us back to the Idahoan with the crimson offer. Is he a BUCK, or is he an Andrei Lintz-type?
