Mike Leach might have only spent one year coaching in Oklahoma, but his Washington State Cougars are making their presence known on the state's recruiting trail.
Leach, who has former OU wide receiver Jarrail Jackson on his coaching staff as a director of player relations, has extended offers to 11 Oklahoma high school players in the 2014 class, recently offering three prospects.
Edmond North running back Michael Farmer, who said last week that he intends to reopen his recruitment after committing to Arizona State during his junior season, got an offer from the Cougars on Sunday. He also recently visited Oklahoma State and has been talking with Arkansas and Georgia.
Muskogee's Tramal Ivy, a 6-foot-4, 215-pound defensive end, received an offer from Washington State on Tuesday.
The Cougars also recently offered Millwood athlete Alfonzo McMillian, a 6-foot, 185-pound senior who is being recruited by Division I programs as both a receiver and cornerback.
Jenks defensive back Steven Parker, the top-rated recruit in the state, has a WSU offer, but isn't believed to be considering the Cougars. The other seven players with Cougar offers are verbally committed elsewhere.
Last year, Washington State offered four Oklahoma high school players, signing Midwest City offensive lineman Carlos Freeman.
