Caleb Smith is fresh off his first offer from Idaho but the Renton (Wash.) Kentridge tight end did not have too much time to sit back because on Wednesday Washington State offered the 6-foot-7, 240-pound recruit.
"It's a pretty big deal more so with academics than even the football because I want to go to a good school," Smith said. "It's definitely a big academic difference.
"I'm not really going to pick a favorite. (Washington State) has shown the most interest so they're up their on my list but I don't really have any favorites at this point."
A couple trips to Pullman are coming up. Smith said assistant coach Chris Tormey has asked him to make an unofficial visit before camp season and Smith is all for it.
"I talked to coach Tormey and he said he'd like me to come over on an unofficial visit before I head over for camp which is what I'm going to try to do," Smith said.
"I'm going to try to get over there in late May or early June and then I'm going to camp in late June."
Boise State, Oregon, UNLV and Montana are four other programs showing interest in Smith, who preferred not to guess which school would offer next but he said Washington is also getting more involved.
Washington assistant coach Mike Cox has been to Kentridge to check out Smith and the Kentridge prospect said there is a chance the Huskies could offer at some point but not sure when in his recruitment.
"I saw this one coming," Smith said of Washington State. "They've shown the most interest other than Idaho offering me last week.
"Washington has shown me a lot of interest and coach Cox came up to the school and he seems really interested. I'm not quite sure even if I guessed who's going to offer next. I'm just going to wait and see."
