1: “Coach Breske has been a coordinator for more than 20 years and he’s won three national championships,” Idaho coach Paul Petrino said. “… We are excited to have him lead the Vandal defense. He will do a great a job of leading and teaching.”
Tuesday: Even as Washington State begins to add commitments for 2016, the Cougars are still wrapping up their 2015 recruiting class.
Tavares Martin from West Palm Beach, Florida, turned in his national letter of intent to the WSU coaching staff on Tuesday, according to multiple outlets. He was recruited in the 2015 class but will likely count as a member of the 2016 class for the Cougars.
Martin originally planned to sign with West Virginia but had his scholarship offer rescinded following an arrest for attempted burglary. He allegedly broke into a home.
While the arrest happened long before Martin committed to WVU, various reports state that it was the reason for the scholarship offer to be revoked. He then signed with Ellsworth Community College in Iowa.
Because theft is one of WSU coach Mike Leach’s three violations that is cause for immediate dismissal, Martin will undoubtedly be under tight scrutiny from both fans and coaches.
In Martin, the Cougars are getting an undeniably talented receiver, one who reportedly had scholarship offers from Alabama, Florida, Ohio State and many other successful programs.
