PULLMAN, Wash. – Charles Callison and Viont'e Daniels have each signed a National Letter of Intent to play basketball for Washington State University beginning in the fall of 2015, head coach Ernie Kent announced Wednesday.

Charles Callison (6-0, 180, Guard, Moreno Valley, Calif./Canyon Springs HS/San Bernardino Valley College) averaged 15.4 points, 3.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game as a sophomore at San Bernardino Valley College in 2014-15. He helped lead his team to a 29-2 record and its 14th conference championship, which included a 10-0 league mark. He was named the Foothill Conference Most Valuable Player. He was also MVP of the Alvin Hunter Winter Classic, Kirby Mannon-Pepsi-Holiday Inn Tournament, and was named to the Fiesta Bowl and Gregg Anderson Memorial Tournament all-tournament teams. As a junior in 2013-14, Callison was second team all-league as his team was the State runner-up. He played his high school career at Canyon Springs HS where he earned all-league honors as a senior.

Viont'e Daniels (6-3, 170, Guard, Federal Way, Wash./Federal Way HS) had the best year of his high school career as a senior, averaging 24.0 points, 6.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game. He was named The Tacoma News Tribune, Seattle Times and Associated Press 4A Player of the Year, as well as the 4A State Tournament MVP. He was named first team all-State, The Tacoma News Tribune's 2014-15 All-Area Player of the Year, and led the Eagles to the 2015 State title with a 27-2 overall record and 13-0 league mark. As a junior in 2013-14, Daniels earned second team all-league honors.

The two join Robert Franks (6-7, 175, Forward, Vancouver, Wash./Evergreen HS), Derrien King (6-7, 175, Forward, Wichita, Kan./Cathedral HS-Calif./Santa Monica CC), Jeff Pollard (6-9, 220, Forward, Bountiful, Utah/Bountiful HS), and Renard Suggs (6-3, 200, Guard, St. Paul, Minn./Woodbury HS/Gillette College-Wyo.) who each signed NLIs with WSU in the fall.
