Cottonwood safety commits to Washington State

Pac-10 schools continue to mine Utah's Cottonwood High School for prep football talent.

The latest Colt to commit to a Pac-10 school is safety Asi Hosea, who said Wednesday that he will sign with Washington State when the signing period begins Feb. 4.

Hosea, a 5-foot-10, 175-pound senior, only played organized football for two years. He also had offers from SMU, Kansas State, Hawaii and Arizona, according to his father, Charles Hosea.

Hosea moved from Hawaii to Utah prior to his junior season at Cottonwood.

Charles Hosea said his son chose Washington State because of the opportunity to be able to play right away. The Cougars went 2-11 in 2008, defeating only Washington and Portland State.

Earlier this month, Cottonwood lineman John Martinez chose USC, and Colts running back Isi Sofele committed to California.

Another Cottonwood lineman, Percy Taumoelau, has also received several D-I offers from the likes of Arkansas, WSU, Arizona and Hawaii.

As for Hosea, his father said that he drew some interest from Utah and BYU, but neither local school extended a scholarship offer.
