Cougs have 'big' day off

The Washington State football team had the day off from camp Monday, but that didn't stop big news from coming out of Pullman.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

With camp resuming Tuesday, the Cougars took the day off and headed back to Pullman. One player specifically had a great day after the NCAA cleared him to play right away. Former Clemson wide receiver, Kyrin Priester and Washington State coaches filed an appeal to allow Priester to play right away instead of sitting out the required 1-year for transfer students.

This is big news as the former 3-star receiver joins an already stellar receiver corps that is looking to put up very large numbers in the coming season.

For more information on that see Brian's post from last night after the news broke.

The Cougars resume camp Tuesday afternoon.

Incoming freshman, Jasmine Margetts competed at the U.S. Junior Nationals where she qualified to compete at U.S. Olympic Time Trials for the 2016 Olympics in the 200m Fly. The 18-year-old posted a time of 2:14.84 and placed 12th.

Margetts will compete June 26-July 3, 2016 for a spot in the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics.

So what's in store for 2015? There is a lot of football to be played, but Leach is in his best position yet to succeed. Leach has had three years to recruit, and the players on this year's team are finally up to Pac-12 level. New facilities have helped, and Leach has had enough time to weed out the problem players left over from the previous regime.
