Morning links: WSU adds 2015 receiver

Washington State's football coaches continue to make hay after signing day, adding receiver Rickey Preston to the 2015 recruiting class.

Preston's announcement, first reported by Britton Ransford of WazzuWatch.com, makes him the third player to join WSU's recruiting class since Mike Leach held his Signing Day press conference.

The first was Georgia cornerback Sean Harper and the second was safety Hunter Dale. Like Dale, Preston comes to WSU from Louisiana. He claimed some impressive offers from schools such as Missouri, Nebraska and Texas A&M, and it seems reasonable to think he formed some relationship with new WSU defensive coordinator Alex Grinch when he was coaching safeties for the Tigers.

According to Ransford's premium article, Preston was expected to go to junior college because of academic issues but is now expected to be able to enroll right away by signing a financial aid agreement, and shore up a class of receiving recruits that was a little light after some late defections.

Check out the highlights:


— WSU baseball opens Pac-12 play against USC on Friday so I've got a story on what to expect from the youthful Cougars.

— Yesterday I made my selections for the Pac-12's All-Conference teams and postseason awards. And yeah, I nailed them.

— Ted Miller broke down the quarterbacks of the Pac-12 North.

— And Chantel Jennings had a Q&A session with WSU's new defensive coordinator.

Some Wednesday WSU links, notes


Funny thing about spring in the Palouse. It was a beautiful day yesterday, warm, sunny, clear. Then the sun went down. The cold was biting. Just a warning if you are planning on coming down for spring football practice. The last few drills can be awfully cold. We have some spring thoughts – and will have a story and notes early this afternoon – along with links and other stuff, so read on.
