Gonzaga Prep junior standout running back Bishop Sankey won't begin college until fall 2011.

He didn't think it was too soon to decide where he's headed.

On Christmas Eve, the 5-foot-10, 185-pound Sankey gave an oral commitment to Washington State University.

"It wasn't planned to decide on Christmas Eve," Sankey said. "It's just something that happened."

It was an early present to WSU – perhaps as much as a year early.

Sankey said WSU's coaches told him he was the first in the 2011 recruiting class to commit.

"Every time I go down there I get a good feeling about the coaching staff and the school," Sankey said. "I feel comfortable."

Sankey said several schools had been in contact before his decision. Among those were Oregon, Washington, UCLA, Alabama, LSU, Georgia Tech and Boise State.
