HCA: Sunday morning links

It's a quiet Sunday for WSU links, so let's take a closer look and one of the lesser-known incoming players.

If you read the roster breakdown for a couple of days ago, you likely saw WSU's lack of depth at quarterback. Enter Luke Falk.

The former Cornell commit changed course to WSU in March, but before he could get to Pullman he played in one final all-star game with some of his former high school teammates. The good news for WSU, Falk didn't suffer any kind of crazy injury in the game. Afterward, he talked about his switch to WSU, saying he almost sees it "like fate." Via the Salt Lake Tribune:

Washington State was his top choice entering his senior year, but Falk said he "never got much attention" from the Cougars. He committed to Cornell. "Right out of the blue, [Washington State’s staff] started talking to me, and then Cornell’s coach left," Falk said. "I almost see it like fate."

With his experience in the Air Raid and WSU's situation at quarterback, Falk has an outside shot to play a role next season. If Tyler Bruggman doesn't beat out Connor Halliday or Austin Apodaca, he may be destined for a redshirt season. That would leave very little depth behind whichever quarterback is No. 2. Falk, who is presumably walking on, could get the nod over Bruggman for the No. 3 duties if the coaching staff really wants to protect Bruggman's redshirt.

When Bill Moos took over as Washington State's AD in 2010, the Cougars' football team was going through a three-year stretch with a combined 5-32 record. A year later, he fired coach Paul Wulff and convinced a supportive president, Elson Floyd, to shell out $2 million a year for Mike Leach.

He was supposed to be gone by now, cruising along the highway into Idaho, up into the panhandle then just west across the border, to his new life. Football camp at Washington State University begins Wednesday, and Luke Falk had planned to leave Logan for Pullman, Wash., on Saturday.
