"I like Washington State's coaches and the school's atmosphere," Kendricks said. "It is also good because Washington State is my first Pac 10 offer.
Washington State joins, hometown Fresno State and Nevada as schools that have offered the talented Kendricks a scholie. He is hoping he lands another one very soon.
