The Washington State Cougars decided to return to the well that brought them starting running back Jonathan Smith. Smith was a standout for Pasadena City College before continuing his education and football career at WSU. When the water is as good as Smith, it could be a smart idea to draw from the same source and the Cougars did.
Head coach Bill Doba and staff offered Pasadena CC four-star running back Jerome Harrison (5-11, 188, 4.4) this weekend.
It didn’t take Harrison long to decide that Washington State would be an ideal place for him to continue his education and his football career.
The Cougars hope to get the same type of production out of Harrison as they did Smith. Harrison has the type of talent to be able to continue the fine play at the running back position for WSU.
Smith is the first back in PCC (the same junior college that all-time great Jackie Robinson attended) to rush for 1,000 years for both his freshman and sophomore season.
Smith is a speedster with big playmaking abilities. His host not by coincidence was current Cougar star running and former PCC standout Jonathan Smith.
The Cougars are one of the teams that do a great job harvesting JUCO talent and once again they pick another talented JUCO player.
