Marcellus Pippins on board with Wazzu

2/11/2013

Senior cornerback Marcellus Pippins (El Cerrito, Calif./El Cerrito) has committed to Washington State. However, he's not listed with the program's 2013 class on the Cougars' official Web site, and according to multiple sources, appears to have accepted a grayshirt offer.

Pippins originally pledged to Utah. San Diego State UCLA, UNLV and Utah State also extended scholarship offers to the 5-foot-9, 165-pound three-star.

ESPN calls him, "an explosive corner prospect falling under the BCS radar. He lacks ideal size and speed on paper but looks and plays bigger and makes up for his lack of height with excellent burst."

Washington State's other committed, unsigned 2013 recruits, are in the same situation as Pippins according to multiple sources. Three-star running back Olito Thompson (Concord, Calif./Concord), two-star safety Markell Sanders (Bellevue, Wash./Eastside Catholic) and ungraded linebacker Dylan Hanser (Billings, Mont./Central) are also expected to grayshirt.

The Cougars inked 24 players for their 2013 class.
