Still looking to replenish on the offensive line, Washington State received a commitment from a junior college offensive tackle Saturday night.

Jimmy Price, a 6-foot-5, 295-pound tackle from Tyler Junior College in Texas, announced his pledge to WSU on Twitter. Price, who’s graduating from Tyler in May, is expected to sign with the Cougars on Feb. 6, which would give them their fourth offensive lineman in the class of 2019. He’ll have three years to play two once he gets to Pullman.

WSU inked high school linemen Konner Gomness, Patrick Utschinski and Ma’ake Fifita during the early signing period. Two O-linemen who’d been committed to the Cougars, Dontae Powell and Hunter Hill, didn’t ink letters of intent and have since reopened their recruitment.

According to 247Sports, Price also had offers from Arizona State, Southern Miss and Florida International. A native of Houston, Price attended Stratford High School.

Price’s junior college team went just 4-5 in 2018, but it wasn’t for a lack of offensive output. With Price at left tackle, the Apaches scored more than 36 points per game and put up 70 points in a home win over Texas A&T.
