Powell could be swayed by teammate

Washington State just landed a commitment from four-star quarterback Tyler Hilinski and the Cougars might not be done at Upland, Calif.
Three-star defensive back Kameron Powell is high on the Pac-12 program and he said Sunday at the Passing Down Best of the West 7on7 tournament that Hilinski's commitment is a big deal in his own recruitment.
"It plays a big role because me and Tyler click and we're pretty close so that plays a big role," Powell said.
"They played that up to me and they offered some other guys on our team, too. I think they could offer even more guys so that always plays a big role. We kind of want to stay together and I like the guys I'm playing with and we have a good vibe."
Powell, who has missed some time this offseason with an ankle injury, said he could be taking his first visit to Pullman soon.
Nothing is planned yet but the Upland standout said he wants to see Washington State soon - and he could go up with Hilinski, who just committed to the program this past week.
"I think I'm going to take a trip up there with Tyler pretty soon," Hilinski said.
"It's a little different but Tyler told me it's like a football town. He likes it a lot and I like the coaches. I don't really go about how big the town is because it's about football."
Washington State definitely looks good for Powell but he also has offers from Colorado, Colorado State, Oregon State, Utah, Washington and Washington State.
Powell is taking his time and said he doesn't plan to commit anytime soon especially with new interest from Arizona and Vanderbilt coming in recently.
"I'm just waiting," Powell said.
