SPOKANE, Wash. - Washington State appears to have landed arguably the best prep football player in the state of Washington. Gino Simone, from Sammamish, signed a letter of intent to play at Wazzu on Wednesday.
Simone, a 6'0" receiver out of Skyline High School, holds his school record for most touchdowns in a career (40), season (19) and game (4). He also holds the record for career receiving yards (2,827). Rivals.com ranked him the No. 2 prospect in the state, while Scout.com rated him No. 7 in the West at his position.
Along with Simone, the Cougars announced a host of other signees - some of them quite impressive.
Among the most interesting recruits is Johnny Forzani. Rated the No. 3 sleeper prospect by The College Football Place, the 6'1" receiver has three years of eligibility after having played one season of college basketball at Douglas College in Canada, and spending one year as a member of the CFL's Calgary Stampeders practice squad (2007-08).
Another "get" for the Cougars is Casey Locker, a defensive back from Ferndale, Washington. The cousin to Washington's Jake Locker played both DB and quarterback for Ferndale, and was named AP 3A All-State Quarterback in his senior year.
Greater Spokane League product Chris Mastin also signed with Washington State Wednesday. The 6'2" linebacker from Lewis and Clark helped his team to a state championship during his junior year. He was ranked Rivals.com as the No. 14 best prospect in the state of Washington.
