WSU football signs Calvin Green

From Pullman -- Fleet running back Calvin Green from Sacramento, Calif., declared back in June that he intended to play for Washington State over scholarship offers from schools such as Arizona State, Boise State, and others. Today he made good on that pledge, signing a financial aid agreement that will allow him to enroll at WSU in January, in time for Spring semester.

"We are excited for Calvin to get in school and begin his Cougar career," coach Mike Leach said. "He is a versatile player who can do a lot of things, explosive with the ball, and can play different positions. He will also have the benefit of going through winter conditioning and spring practice as he adjusts to college life."
