Washington State has been involved with Sean Krepsz for a long time and so his visit there this past weekend was crucial to his recruitment.
After coming home and thinking about it for a few days, the Riverside (Calif.) Martin Luther King offensive tackle decided to make his commitment to the Cougars and he's not looking back.
"First and foremost, I loved the coaching staff," Krepsz said.
"Before the visit started, Washington State was my No. 1 and I liked how the coaching staff always talked to me, week-in and week-out, we were always on the phone. Every time I called them they were there and I really liked that. I liked that they believed in me and they have since March. They were one of my first offers so I liked that.
"Going up there, I just wanted to see how I'd fit in and how the layout was of everything. The town is cool. It's a little bit different being from California but it's fun. It's exciting because it's new and different. It's a small town but it's definitely cool."
The 6-foot-5, 300-pound three-star prospect said he could have made his decision while on campus but he wanted to return home and think about it for a few days. He talked with his parents, thought about the trip and figured it was the best fit for him.
"I was looking to make a decision," Krepsz said. "I did like everything I saw on the trip. I could have committed while I was up there but I wanted to come home and make sure.
"Ultimately, the trips are set up for you to like it. I wanted to come home and make sure I felt the same way a few days later and get that final chance to talk to my parents about it."
Krepsz is completely happy with Washington State but other trips could happen. Colorado State, Fresno State, San Diego State, San Jose State and Utah State have also offered and he might want to see some other places.
"I don't know, I haven't fully decided on that," Krepsz said. "I might want to take a couple more just to see some of the other places but I don't know about that yet."
