West Virginia University Freshman All-American defensive tackle Lamonte McDougle signed a letter intent Wednesday to transfer to WSU.

McDougle won’t be eligible to step on the field for the Cougars until 2019, but he will have three years of eligibility left when he does.

McDougle played in all 13 games for the Mountaineers last season, tallying 23 tackles, two sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.

WSU offered McDougle a scholarship out of high school and West Virginia prevented him from transferring to several schools including all the teams within the Big-12 Conference, according to The Spokesman-Review.

McDougle’s father, Stockar, played offensive lineman at University of Oklahoma in 1999 while current WSU Head Coach Mike Leach was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the Sooners, possibly playing a role in McDougle’s decision to come to the Palouse.

This story has been changed to reflect that McDougle signed a letter of intent on Wednesday not Tuesday.
