Huge get for #WashingtonState, four-star safety Kameron Powell tells me he has committed to the Cougs. Thats three four stars for '15 class— Braulio Perez (@BraulioEPerez) May 6, 2014
Braulio Perez of Scout.com reported on Twitter that four-star safety Kameron Powell out of Upland High School in Upland, California has committed to playing football at Washington State. Powell's high school teammate, quarterback Tyler Hilinski, also says he will spend his college days in Pullman.
Recruiting websites think highly of Powell. Scout.com rates him a four-star prospect and the 25th best safety prospect in his class. While Rivals.com only gives Powell three stars, it considers the him the 22nd best player at his position. According to Powell schools such as Colorado, Oregon State and Washington also offered scholarships to the 5-foot-11, 192 pound safety.
He adds to what is already shaping up to be the school's best class in some time. Both Scout and Rivals rate three of the four players who have publicly joined WSU's 2015 class as four-star players. No player signed by WSU in 2014 was ranked four-stars or above by the websites and Gabe Marks and Tyler Bruggman are the only four-star prospects to have signed with WSU in the Mike Leach coaching era.
