The Washington Huskies and Washington State Cougars wrapped up National Signing Day on Wednesday by each signing solid recruiting classes.

Williams wasn't the only 4-star player the Huskies added on offense as Washington also inked three 4-star wide receivers. Demorea Stringfellow leads the way as the No. 11 wide receiver prospect in the country. John Ross and Darrell Daniels also signed with Washington. The Huskies did lose a few recruiting battles on Wednesday including one with Texas A&M. Daeshon Hall, the No. 6 defensive end prospect, signed with the Aggies after choosing between Washington and Texas A&M.

In Pullman, Mike Leach also added a solid group of prospects, led by 4-star quarterback Tyler Bruggman. Despite verbally committing to the Cougars in June, Bruggman's decision came down to the final minute. After Arizona State lost a recruit to Tennessee, the Sun Devils tried to flip Bruggman away from the Cougars. Ultimately, Bruggman decided to stick with his original commitment and signed with Washington State.

The Cougars also added considerable talent along the offensive and defensive line. The Cougars signed five high school offensive linemen on Wednesday, adding much needed depth. WSU added to the defensive line as well with five defensive prospects.

Scout ranks Washington State's recruiting class as 39th best in the country and No. 9 in the Pac-12.
