PULLMAN – Washington State’s class of 2025 commitments has eclipsed the double-figure mark.

The Cougars’ 10th pledge comes from running back Jamar Searcy, a rising senior at Pittsburg High in Northern California who announced his commitment Saturday. A three-star prospect according to 247 Sports, Searcy is officially listed as an athlete, potentially giving WSU some versatility when he arrives on campus next year.

The 5-foot-9 Searcy, who played running back and defensive back last fall for a Pittsburg team that fell in the state championship game, totaled 97 carries for 971 yards and 10 touchdowns last season, good for an average of 107.9 yards per game. On top of 20 receptions for 192 yards and two scores, Searcy also totaled 26 tackles, four interceptions, two passes defended and one tackle for loss on defense.

Searcy shared his commitment the weekend of his official visit, which began on Thursday, wasting no time joining the Cougars’ class of 2025. Searcy turned down offers from UNLV, San Diego State, Nevada, San Jose State, Idaho, UC Davis, Northern Arizona, Sacramento State and Houston Christian to become a Cougar.

Searcy showed off his speed this spring in track and field, logging a 100-meter dash of 10.94 seconds, advancing to the state meet in both that event and the 4x100 relay, in which his team captured the state title in 40.77 , a school record.

Searcy played his sophomore season, the 2022-23 school year, at Brentwood High, also in the Bay Area. That year, he had 108 carries for 695 yards and 10 touchdowns, adding six interceptions, seven passes defended and 59 tackles on defense.

Searcy is the first athlete in WSU’s class of 2025. Here are the other nine members as of Saturday.
