As promised, here's your roundup of reports from day four of WSU's spring football practices.
WSU receiving corps thin this spring - SportsLink - Spokesman.com
The most substantial, of course, is Vince Grippi's report. His story focuses on the receivers, of which there are only four on scholarship this spring, and what that means for development. You know how we teachers always harp on class sizes as a key to education? Wide receivers coach Mike Levenseller is taking the same tack, looking at it as a positive that he gets to spend more time with each player.
He also passes along some of the nicks and bruises that are starting to crop up, most notably a shoulder injury to guard Zack Williams. They're saying it doesn't need surgery, which makes me think, "Well, it must not be that minor if they felt the need to even bring the word 'surgery' in the conversation, right?" This is a development to keep an eye on -- the guy missed most of last season with an ankle sprain that wouldn't go away, and now he's suffered a shoulder sprain in the third spring workout -- one that likely will keep him out for the bulk of spring drills? This is going to bear watching this fall.
Spring Practice No. 4 - First and Crimson
This report comes from the official WSU athletics football blog. There are some interesting notes in there, particularly regarding the long snapping situation. I wonder if that changes between now and fall?
