The Vandals look throughout the country for players, but Akey said a quarter of the class signed is from the Pacific Northwest. “We’ve got two of the best players from Idaho (including LCHS linebacker Jared Heston) and four players from Washington — our area,” Akey said. “That means we’re taking care of our homeland very well. And we’re going to stretch it.” Idaho has signed two junior college transfer players, and Akey said he expects three more to send in their letters today/Sandra Kelly, Moscow-Pullman Daily News.
