St. Ignatius point guard Trevor Dunbar -- the 2013-14 West Catholic Athletic League Player of the Year -- had his patience tested during the recruiting process.

However, that patience ultimately paid off.

Dunbar committed to Washington State, earning a full scholarship to play for new Cougars coach Ernie Kent in the fall. Scout.com was the first to report the news of Dunbar's commitment Sunday.

Kent, who was hired at Washington State in March, previously coached at Oregon and St. Mary's. At Oregon, Kent led the Ducks to two Elite Eights (2002, 2007) and was named Pac-10 Conference Coach of the Year in 2002.

"Coach Kent loves my game, and I love the way he coaches and his style of play," Dunbar said. "They watched my film and they decided I was the point guard they need."

While leading St. Ignatius to a 23-7 record and Central Coast Section Division II championship, the shifty 5-foot-10 YouTube sensation averaged 22 points, five assists and three steals per game in his senior season.

One of the knocks on Dunbar coming into his senior year was that he had an average jump shot, but rigorous workouts with his dad helped him improve his field-goal percentage.
