Whitehouse linebacker Reggie Long might have a busy February.

The 6-foot-1, 210-pound junior already had an invitation to attend Tulsa’s Feb. 2 junior day. He told late Tuesday night that he has received a second junior day invitation, this one from Washington State for Feb. 16.

The Cougars are one of several programs along with Tulsa that Long said have shown interest in the 2014 prospect, joining Michigan, Michigan State, SMU, and Utah.

Long caught the attention of college programs thanks to a solid junior season that saw him record 80 tackles, six sacks, two interceptions, four forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, and 12 quarterback pressures.

Long joins 2015 safety prospect Justin Dunning (6-4, 200), junior-to-be cornerback Nate Brooks, and senior-to-be cornerback Isaiah Burton to give Whitehouse a strong and experienced back seven entering the 2013 season. Whitehouse allowed a respectable 23.8 points per game during a 9-0 start to the 2014 season, but yielded 140 points in its final three contests, which saw the Wildcats go 1-2.

The experience gained by players such as Long could help Whitehouse make another big leap forward defensively. Whitehouse’s 29.5 points per game allowed in 2012 was an improvement of two touchdowns from the number of points the ‘Cats yielded per contest (43.5) in 2011, when they finished 5-6.
