TWELVE OF PAUL WULFF'S incoming class of recruits, plus three invited walk ons, will get a head…
Early class arrivals for Wulff numbers 14
The 14 new Cougs are partaking in WSU's bridge program that allows incoming freshmen to get a jump on their studies in the lower-key summer session. They began taking classes at WSU on Monday.
In past years, typically no more than a handful of incoming footballers enrolled in the summer. What's different about this year?
Wulff, entering his second year at Washington State, has spoken often on his multi-faceted plan to build the program back up, and one tenet is to get incoming recruits into the Cougar system and mix early.
The early arrivals in the '09 class now have more than a month to settle into college coursework and voluntary workouts before fall camp begins on Aug. 9.
The incoming Cougars who are on campus early are:
LB Andre Barrington
RB Arthur Burns
S Anthony Carpenter
DT Justin Clayton
LB Sekope Kaufusi
S Casey Locker
DE Travis Long
LB Darren Markle
DL Jordan Pu'u-Robinson
WR Gino Simone
QB Jeff Tuel
OG Sebastian Valenzuela
CB Nolan Washington
RB Carl Winston
QB David Gilbertson
ATH Dominique Jackson
Gilbertson and Jackson are invited walk ons. DE Elliot Bosch did not arrive early and is expected to come in as normal with the rest of the class for fall camp.
