Joyner loosens commitment after WSU coaching change

Marysville-Pilchuck running back/defensive back Austin Joyner said on Monday that he’s not as firmly committed to Washington State after the Cougars fired defensive coordinator Mike Breske on Sunday.

Joyner, a four-star recruit who committed to Washington State as a cornerback in April after initially choosing Washington as a running back, had a good relationship with Breske and wants to make sure he has the same with the incoming defensive coordinator.

Joyner said he will start to look at other options as a backup plan.

The 5-foot-10, 191-pound two-way star ran for 1,781 yards and 30 touchdowns in 12 games this season while leading the Tomahawks to the state semifinals this year.
