Washington State University has signed four basketball recruits to letters of intent and an announcement is expected today, The Spokesman-Review has learned.
Michael Bush, Milton Riley, Eddie Miller and Jan-Michael Thomas have California roots, although Bush is currently enrolled at Washington’s Kent-Meridian High School.
Miller, a 6-foot-8, 225-pound forward, has played one season at Ventura College and will have three years of eligibility upon arriving at WSU. He is sitting out this season.
The 6-6, 190-pound Bush is originally from Riverside, Calif., and has been forced to sit out this season because this is his fifth year in high school.
The 6-2, 183-pound Riley attends Compton (Calif.) High School. Thomas (6-2, 183) grew up in Inglewood, Calif., and is a sophomore at San Joaquin Delta College.
WSU coach Kevin Eastman was out of the office much of Thursday and was not immediately available.
Good news on Daniel
WSU senior forward Carlos Daniel suffered only a mild sprain to his left knee and could return for the Cougars’ Dec. 4 home game against Gonzaga, WSU announced.
The injury was initially thought to be more serious, and Daniel was not expected to return until mid-December or later.
Daniel, who suffered the injury to his medial-collateral ligament during Wednesday night’s 78-49 victory at BYU, underwent additional tests Thursday afternoon.
Daniel has had surgery on the same knee.
WSU (2-0) departs for Puerto Rico early Tuesday for the San Juan Shootout.
