WSU's Florida offers continue to swell

HOW IMPORTANT HAS the state of Florida become to Washington State recruiting? Looking at the number of prospects offered from the Sunshine State, and comparing it to the number offered from the state of Washington answers that question.
Pull up the known in-state offer numbers made by Washington State in the Scout database as of today. Now compare it to Florida. They’re dead even.
Nine offers to in-state prospects.
Nine offers to Florida prospects.

One caveat here – it’s not exactly an even split. After a prospect commits Scout takes his name off other school’s offer list about a week later so WSU’s in-state list no longer shows the offer to Mercer Island QB Jeff Lindquist. But the central point remains – Florida, and Central Florida in particular, has fast become an integral area of recruiting focus for Washington State.
California will always be the Cougs’ bread and butter. The Northwest will always be important. But the gates to Florida were opened wide with the Florida quartet –
– who signed with the Cougs last year.
And if this year’s known offers are any indication, the doors have been flung wider open this year.
