It's official! I will be playing next year at WASHINGTON STATE UNIVERSITY! 🏈✒️ pic.twitter.com/S3BzVIEdeQ— Jalen Canty (@Mr_Nodaysoff23) January 28, 2014
With the above tweet, Jalen Canty of St. Vincent- St. Patrick high school in Vallejo, Calif., declared his intentions to play football at Washington State. Canty, who at one point apparently planned to play basketball at Washington, is expected to play hoops at WSU as well.
At 6-foot-8, 270-pounds Canty has the size, and reportedly has the athleticism, to exceed in either sport. Canty had 76 tackles and 22 sacks in his senior high school season, and reportedly chose WSU over an offer from Utah.
