G&T Blog matters: D’Jimon Jones signs with WSU football


Thursday: Washington State football picked up its sixth known commitment of the 2016 recruiting cycle on Thursday when D’Jimon Jones tweeted his intention of joining the Cougars.

It’s not certain where the 6-foot-2, 175-pound athlete out of Federal Way High School will play at WSU. expects Jones to play quarterback, while merely lists him as an athlete. But it’s worth noting that in his highlight videos he’s chosen to show videos of him playing quarterback exclusively, although he does also list himself as a cornerback. The Cougars also have one quarterback currently committed in the class of 2016, Oak Ridge (Florida) High’s Ian Book.

Wednesday: Kirkland Parker, a cornerback at Blinn Community College in Texas, announced on Twitter early Wednesday morning that he will play at Washington State. According to the WSU news and recruiting website, Parker will join the Cougars in the fall as a member of the class of 2015 with three years to play and no redshirt year available. The Cougars weren’t believed to have any scholarships remaining and, with players expected to report to Pullman shortly, Parker’s commitment likely means that at least one signee won’t show up at WSU.
