Where the heck is future Coug Peyton Pelluer?
UPDATE SINCE THIS NOTE WENT UP: ON MONDAY MORNING THE TIMES APOLOGIZED FOR THE PELLUER OVERSIGHT AND INSERTED HIM INTO THE RED-CHIP SECTION IN THEIR ON-LINE LISTING.
The true enormity of compiling a statewide ranking of close to 100 players is illustrated nicely when a player of Pelluer's skills is left off. Rest assured, it was indeed an oversight. A very large oversight. Pelluer, you see, is rated by Scout.com as one of the top 100 middle linebacker prospects in the nation. The Seattle Times itself, as well as the Tacoma News Tribune, recently named him all-classifications All-State, and the Associated Press tabbed him for the second year in a row to the Class 4A All-State team. But above all, there's the offer list. In addition to Washington State, to whom he is verbally committed, Pelluer had offers from the likes of Arizona State and Colorado.
As for who did make the Times' list, four future Cougs were picked as red chippers: Issac Dotson, Cole Madison, Matt Meyer and Cody O'Connell. And one future Cougar, Eastside Catholic cornerback Markell Sanders, was named a white chipper (likely a reflection on the fact he missed the 2012 season with injury).
