Two junior college players (offensive linemen Wade Jacobson and David Gonzalez) have already signed National Letters of Intent. Of the high schoolers, six are from the state of Washington. Mead's Aaron Dunn, Ferris' Connor Halliday, and Shadle Park's Jake Rodgers are all expected to sign with WSU on Wednesday.
GoVandals.net reports that ten high school athletes have committed to Idaho. The Vandals have already signed four junior college football players for the 2010 recruiting class. The university expects to welcome four high schoolers from Idaho and two from Washington. Moscow's Jayson Washington, Lewiston's Justin Podrabsky, Wenatchee's Mike Marboe, and Asotin's Jesse Davis are among those who will likely sign with the Vandals.
A commitment list for Eastern Washington University could not be found, but the Eagles are expected to bring in another strong class on Wednesday. Thanks to Eagsports.com, we do know five Washington natives who are likely to sign with EWU: Billy Lechtenberg (Mountlake Terrace), Ronnie Hamlin (Lacey), Zach Gehring (Castle Rock), Paul Ena (Kenmore), and Spencer Hessler (Walla Walla).
