Marcus Strong of Rialto Carter High School confirmed that he has verbally committed to play football at Washington State University.
Strong had offers from San Jose and PAC-12 rivals such as Oregon State and Washington but felt that the Cougars were the best fit for him.
“I think my speed can fit in very well with a good and upcoming program like Washington State,” Strong said. “I have a good connection with the coaching staff and that is what matters the most.”
Strong believes he still has a few things he wants to address as he prepares for the next step in his career.
“I have to put on some muscle and I have to build up some more speed to compete (against the best in the PAC-12),” he said. “But I those task will be easy for me.”
