Jalen Canty, a 6-foot-8, 270-pound defensive-line prospect who was one of the most intriguing recruits in Washington State’s February football signing class, apparently won’t be making it to WSU.

“I just got that word yesterday,” said Bobby Brooks, an assistant coach at St. Patrick-St. Vincent High in Vallejo, Calif., and a former NFL linebacker who had compared Canty’s raw ability to that of 1997 No. 2 draftee Darrell Russell. “I apologize. When I vouch for somebody, it’s pure.

“I think he has all the ability in the world, but he has a lot of growing up to do. What I do know is basketball was his first love.”

Canty told Cougfan.com he’s headed for Casper (Wyo.) JC and that his decision was based on favoring basketball and a lack of a qualifying test score for freshman eligibility.

Notes

Erynne Lee of Silverdale helped the U.S. women take a 5-1 lead over Britain and Ireland in the Curtis Cup at St. Louis Country Club.

Lee, a senior at UCLA, teamed with USC’s Annie Park to beat Eilidh Briggs and Gabriella Cowley 3 and 1 in the afternoon foursomes.

University of Washington sophomore Charlotte Thomas and Bronte Law lost 4 and 3 in the morning four-ball matches to Park and Ally McDonald.

The U.S. leads the series 27-7-3.
