To get the blog back to football for a minute, there are several reports tonight, including from Rivals.com and RealDawg.com, that Eastlake High's Cory Mackay, who had been committed to UW, is now headed to Washington State.
The 6-4, 216-pounder will play receiver at WSU while the Huskies were recruiting him as a linebacker.
"For me, a big reason for the switch was my desire to play receiver and that's where Washington State recruited me,'' Mackay told Rivals.com.
Mackay said further that he was "excited about staying on the offensive side of the ball'' and pointed out that he had been leaning toward WSU before Bill Doba was fired, after which he then committed to UW while not knowing what was happeing with the Cougars. New WSU coach Paul Wulff recruited him anew after getting the WSU job.
Including everybody, UW has 26 players in this class now, but with Chris Polk coming in early and Kevin Prince late, the Huskies appear to have room for one more signee.
