Mount Si’s Edson makes college choice….he’s going to be a Coug!!!!!

We have major breaking news just into the Snoqualmie Valley Sports Journal newsroom of a major college commitment for a soon-to-be senior Mount Si High School football player.

Tight end/defensive end Andrew Edson took to Twitter just within the past 10 minutes to announce a verbal commitment to attend and play for Washington State University over in Pullman. Edson told the SVSJ the commitment came very quickly this afternoon – the school, Edson tells us, made the offer earlier this afternoon and he quickly accepted. “I have always wanted to play Pac-12 football”, Edson told us via Twitter.

WSU, as you know, is in the NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision Pac-12 Conference and Edson’s commitment to the Cougars marks the third time in recent years a MSHS player has committed to play for a Pac-12 school, joining QB Cale Millen with Oregon and receiver Jesiah Irish at Oregon State. Edson’s Mount Si teammate – and Cale’s brother – Clay Millen could be the fourth, as several conference schools are currently in the hunt to land the star signal-caller.

WSU beat out a ton of Ivy League schools and several Mountain West schools for Edson, who is expected to play at defensive end for the Cougars. This also is a huge get for new head coach Nick Rolovich, who as you probably have seen has been making significant inroads with Washington high schools as he has gone around the state since being hired earlier this year to replace the departed Mike Leach. Leach, as you may remember, left WSU to coach at Mississippi State.
