WSU adds safety Hunter Dale

During this brief layover at SeaTac I turned on my computer to discover that the Cougars have added a 25th player to their 2015 recruiting class. 

They're already calling us to board, but here is the release from Washington State:

Cougar Football Adds Hunter Dale to 2015 Signing Class
PULLMAN, Wash. – Washington State head football coach Mike Leach announced Monday that safety Hunter Dale has signed a national letter of intent to play for the Cougars this fall.
