Newport survives Issaquah, Dotson to WSU | Prep sports roundup

Dotson to WSU

Newport senior Isaac Dotson, a standout in basketball and top prospect in football, announced that he will head to Washington State to play for coach Mike Leach and the Cougars.

Dotson had previously pledged to Nevada, but the Wolfpack recently saw longtime head coach Chris Ault retire and a top offensive assistant take a head coaching position elsewhere for the 2013 season. Both of Dotson's parents are Washington State alums.
