Washington State picks up commitment from prolific 2023 wideout
On Tuesday, Washington State earned a commitment from 2023 3-star wideout Carlos Hernandez.
The 6-foot, 170-pound wideout from Monrovia (Calif.) announced his commitment to the Cougars only days after being in Pullman on an official visit. He chose the Cougars over interest from Fresno State, Nevada, and Oregon State, among others.

Hernandez doesn’t have a star rating in the industry-generated 247 Composite, but 247Sports’ own evaluators have labeled him as a 3-star and the 211th-ranked receiver in the Class of 2023.
Maybe he’s due for a bump soon. The junior production leaps off the page.
Hernandez hauled in 71 receptions for 1,593 yards (over 22 yards a catch) and 23 touchdowns. He also has five interceptions to his credit. He had four games with at least 200 yards and a truly special night last fall where he hauled in four touchdown catches and returned two interceptions for scores.
On his hudl, Hernandez, also a track athlete for Monrovia, claims a 4.48 40-yard dash time. He won the Rio Hondo league title in the 100m, with a time of 10.96 seconds. He also recorded a 22.63 in the 200m.
The pledge gives Washington State its fourth known commitment for the 2023 class. You can view his highlight tape below, via Hudl:
