Football Recruiting: Offers/Visits Until the latter half of February, most post-signing day news in the world of college football recruiting had been little more than “prospect interested” or “communication from coaches confirmed by top player…” That’s all changing.

To put things into proper perspective, we must first describe the setting. Washington state. East slopes of the Cascades. Deep in the heart of Apple Country. Roughly halfway between Pullman and Seattle. Lots of Cougars and Huskies. And right smack in the middle of Wenatchee you’ll also find Luke Gillespie the Duck.
