National signing day was nearly a best case scenario for Washington State, as coach Mike Leach nabbed several key recruits who were on the bubble. The most important commitment came from Tyler Bruggman, a four-star quarterback out of Phoenix who was debating between WSU and Arizona State. Bruggman was expected to sign with the Cougars as of Wednesday morning, but moments before signing his letter of intent, he disappeared from the podium. He would return soon, however, and put his name on the dotted line to join Leach's class.
"Tyler has been solid from the beginning, a high integrity kid, but a person of his word," Leach said. "We're excited to have Tyler and couldn't be happier to have him on board."
