After taking the day off on Sunday, WSU was back on the practice field Monday going through another fall camp practice.
Brian was there and filed his report last night. Reading through the practice reports, it's hard not to be impressed by what Gabe Marks is doing. He came in with a large group of freshman wide receivers and didn't take long to distinguish himself from that group. Then after a couple of practices it looked like he would be a guy who definitely plays in 2012.
A few practices later he was looking like a guy who might contend for a starting job. Another day or two and he looked likely to start. Now, you might not be crazy to call Marks Washington State's likely No. 2 receiver. Marquess Wilson turned a lot of heads his freshman fall camp, but I'm not sure even he ascended this quickly.
At this point in time I really have no idea what to expect from Marks going forward. We are not even halfway through fall camp, but if he keeps this up, he could easily be a guy who sees triple digit targets next season.
