JANUARY IS HOLD-ON time in recruiting. For WSU in recent years, it's been when the competition…
Future Coug Mayes stands alone
Mayes racked up 84 tackles on the season, including 13 1/2 sacks.
He also starred at right guard, a position he had not played before, to earn first-team all-state honors. Mayes was also named first team all-state on defense.
The Midwestern League defensive player of the year, Mayes helped lead Marist to a 12-1 mark this year. Marist finished the season with an overtime loss in 5A state championship game.
Mayes is ranked in the nation's top 50 prospects as an outside linebacker by Scout.com, (No. 49), and was listed at 6-3, 215 pounds this season.
Logan, the son of CougGreat Rueben Mayes, is expected to play the LEO linebacker spot at Washington State.
The LEO, in essence, is an athletic defensive end, primarily playing in a stand up posture. And at WSU, he generally lines up on the side with the tight end and has the skills to drop and play coverage -- but more often he'll be looking to rush and get after the quarterback.
Mayes has a frame conducive to adding more weight, and by the time he gets to Pullman, Mayes earlier told CF.C he hopes to be in the 240-245 pound range.
