Earlier this year, Washington State lost its second game of the season to Boise State, but the Cougars have now managed to beat the Broncos for one coveted recruit.

Pocatello (Idaho) High defensive end Aisa Kelemete, who has been committed to Boise State since July, decided Monday to withdraw his commitment to the Broncos and verbally commit to the Cougars instead.

Kelemete announced his commitment on Twitter, writing, “Although I am verbally committed to Boise State University, I know Washington State is where I’m supposed to be,” before thanking Boise State for its interest and finishing things off with a “Go Cougs.”

Kelemete is a 6-foot-4, 225-pound defensive end who’s rated a three-star recruit by and is ranked the 24th-best defensive end prospect in the West region.

He visited WSU over the weekend and is the second commit the Cougars have picked up this week.

The other is linebacker Cole Dubots, a three-star prospect out of Vista Murrieta (Calif.) High. Murrieta also visited WSU last weekend and according to, he committed before leaving Pullman.

Dubots is listed at 6-foot-1, 185 pounds, and he also played running back in high school.

WSU now has four defensive ends and two linebackers who are part of the 2017 recruiting class.
