Just a day before National Signing Day, Washington State has lost an offensive tackle recruit.

Antelope (Calif.) High offensive tackle Jaelen Lewis has flipped his commitment to San Jose State of the Mountain West conference, Joe Davidson of the Sacramento Bee reported Tuesday morning.

Davidson reported that Lewis and his quarterback, Montel Aaron, both switched their commitments to SJSU. Aaron was originally committed to Temple but decommitted last week.

Lewis is a 6-foot-6, 270-pound tackle who is rated a three-star recruit by Rivals.com. He committed to WSU in November and was part of a group of six offensive linemen who had committed to WSU for this recruiting cycle.

The Cougars still hold verbal commitments from Milpitas (Calif.) High’s Christian Haangana, Arbor View (Las Vegas, Nev.) High’s Keenen King, Damien (La Verne, Calif.) High’s Liam Ryan, Cascade (Everett) High’s Joshua Watson and Kailua (Hawaii) High’s Nilsson Gaisoa.

On Wednesday Frederick Mauigoa, a lineman from Tafuna High School in Pago Pago, American Samoa, is also expected to announce his commitment to either WSU or Oregon State.

Lewis’ decommitment leaves WSU with 26 recruits either signed or committed as part of the 2016 recruiting class.
