Cougs snag third verbal commit in two days!
RIVER CRACRAFT Managing Editor
Posted Jun 18, 2012

EARLY MONDAY, receiver River Cracraft was pondering his whirlwind weekend visits of Washington State and Boise State and told he wasn't prepared to make any decisions until he "let it all sink in." By dinner, he was ready to join Mike Leach's Cougar Air Raid

River Cracraft, who hails from Klay Thompson's alma mater, Santa Margarita Catholic outside of Los Angeles, told's Greg Biggins this evening that he has verbally committed to WSU.

As a junior last season he earned All-State honors after catching 42 passes for 554 yards.

The Cougs were the first school to offer him a scholarship, back in May. Cracraft visited Pullman over the weekend with his parents, brother, and three Eagles teammates, including OL Riley Sorenson, who also has a WSU offer.

Cracraft told Chris Fetters of that meeting WSU inside receivers coach Eric Morris was a highlight of his Pullman visit. "He's a great player, I've watched his highlights from when he played at Texas Tech, and he's the same type of player I am. It was cool to meet him and he was really nice. He's a good coach and he knows a lot. And Mike Leach - he's the legend. He's kind of like our coach at our high school (Harry Welch); you don't always know what he's doing, but you know he's doing it right."

As for Pullman, he told Fetters, "I've never been in a small town like that, but it was really cool. There were little (WSU) flags everywhere. If you're not a Cougar fan, you don't really belong there. I thought that was cool."

Cracract is the seventh known verbal commit in WSU's 2013 recruiting class, and the third in the last two days, following closely behind Peyton Pelluer and Markell Sanders, and the second receiver in less than a week, following Demarcus Ayers of Texas. CLICK HERE FOR THE COMPLETE LIST.
