Cougars add three for 2012

Washington State announced the signing of three student-athletes to letters of intent on Wednesday.

Heading to Pullman next fall will be shooting guard Demarquise Johnson (Phoenix, Ariz./Westwind Prep), small forward Richard Longrus (Oakland, Calif./Bishop O'Dowd) and small forward Brett Boese (Spokane, Wash./Shadle Park H.S.).

"Another good thing about these three guys is the academic side," head coach Ken Bone said. "That's important to our program, guys that want to come in and not only be a part of the basketball scene, but also value the academic side and their education. We're very excited about this recruiting class and like I said earlier, I don't think it's over yet, I think we'll add another player to this."

Center Richard Peters (Toronto, Ont./Westwind Prep) committed to the Cougars in October but Bone did not announce his signing on Wednesday.
