PULLMAN – Uluaki Katoanga, a three-star linebacker from California, has verbally committed to Washington State less than 24 hours before National Signing Day.

The Cougars signed 20 players during the early signing period and will round out their 2018 recruiting class on Wednesday. Six additional prospects are expect to ink letters of intent with WSU.

Katoanga, at 6-2, 205 pounds, should give the good unique size at the linebacker position and the El Camino High product has the versatility to play either on the inside or outside.

Though WSU was the only Pac-12 offer for Katoanga, a number of Mountain West schools were intested, inlcluding Boise State, Nevada, Hawaii, San Jose State, New Mexico and UNLV.
