2017 Sumner (Wa.) ATH Connor Wedington is one of the top playmakers in the Evergreen State and he recently hauled in his first Power Five offer from Washington State.
“They had been talking to me for a while and sending stuff,” Wedinton told Northwest Elite Index. “I talked to coach (Eric) Mele and he came by our school earlier this week and he said they wanted to offer me.
“It was really exciting. I was happy they offered. They are in the Pac 12, one of the top conferences in the country, and it’s my first (Power 5) offer.
“He said they really like the way I play and that they think I would be a great fit there in their program.”
Wedington said the Cougars’ staff is the only one that has been specific about where they see him playing.
“They said they see me as a defensive back if I were to go there,” Wedington noted. “The other schools that have offered (Eastern Washington, Montana State and Idaho) have all said they see me as an athlete and a player who could do well on either side of the ball, so really, Washington State is the only one that has gotten specific with me about where they want me to play.”
In addition to the four schools that have offered, Wedington has also been hearing from most of the Pac 12 as well as Boise State, which just sent a coach by on Thursday and Nevada among others.
“It’s been picking up and pretty busy, but not too bad,” Wedington said. “I’ve got a busy spring and I’ll hit a lot of camps, but I haven’t really thought about which ones I will go to or what Junior Days I plan on attending.
“I’ve already talked with my parents about it and I’ll be visiting a lot of the schools that are after me, just so I can get a good idea on which schools I want to focus on more and then see which ones I want to visit later on.”
As a junior this past season, Wedington totaled just over 1,500 yards and 22 touchdowns on the ground on offense while racking up over 20 tackles and four interceptions on defense
