Pollock picks Eastern Washington

One by one, the names for Eastern Washington University’s football recruiting class keep adding up.

Fife High’s Cody Pollock wanted to add his name to it, and did Wednesday, giving an oral commitment to the Eagles over Idaho State, West Point and Western Washington as a tight end.

“Seeing all those guys, it does mean a lot. It means they are having a great recruiting class,” said Pollock, who becomes the seventh South Sound product to choose Eastern.

Oral commitments are not binding until recruits sign on national letter of intent day on Feb. 7.

Pollock was a big target for the Nisqually League 2A champion Trojans at 6-foot-6 and 250 pounds, hauling in 18 catches for 307 yards and five touchdowns and garnering all-league honors. He also was the team’s punter and long snapper.

He was an all-state selection by, and an honorable mention all-state selection by the Associated Press.

Pollock had scholarship offers from the four finalists, taking a visit to Eastern on Jan. 12, then traveling to West Point last weekend. He canceled his schedule trip to Idaho State later this month.

One reason Pollock said he eliminated West Point and Idaho State was because of their faraway location.

The list of locals who have given oral commitments to Eastern include Matt and Zach Johnson of Tumwater, Toney Henderson of Gig Harbor, Bobby Barnes of Timberline, Chris Powers of Tahoma and Roman Tinitali-Pula of Lincoln.
