Richard Longrus to Pac-12

10/20/2011

Multiple sources are reporting that small forward Richard Longrus (Oakland, Calif.) has verbally committed to Washington State's 2012 class.

The 6-foot-6 Longrus chose the Cougars over Stanford, Colorado, Utah and St. Mary's.

ESPN.com's West Coast Recruiting Coordinator Joel Francisco talks about the versatile Longrus.

"Richard is an undersized 4-man that affects the game in a number of ways. Due to his length and lateral quickness he'll be able to guard 3's as well. The tough-minded Longrus an evolving offensive game but he should be a solid glue-type that will defend and rebound as well as bring a winning attitude to Pullman."

Longrus is the third recruit for head coach Ken Bone and his staff, to go along with center Richard Peters (Toronto, Ont.) and small forward Brett Boese (Spokane, Wash.).
