The Washington State Cougars receivers were ranked as the 8th best group in college football in a Top-10 list by Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman. Fellow conference members Oregon, ranked fourth, and USC, ranked 7th, are also included in the rankings.
Gabe Marks, who had 15 touchdowns last season and was named to the Biletnikoff Award watch list joins River Cracraft, Robert Lewis, John Thompson, Tavares Martin Jr., and Kyle Sweet are among many other receivers that quarterback Luke Falk will be throwing to next year. Marks, Cracraft, Lewis, and Thompson finished last season with 2,552 yards among them, more than half of the total receiving yards by the team.
Falk and the coaches will also be looking to find someone who will take over the 1,040 yards by Dom Williams who was lost to graduation. C.J. Dimry, Dezmon Patmon, and Isaiah Johnson are a few newcomers that will be looking to contribute to the air raid offense and help make up for some of those lost yards.
Although not included in this list, running backs Keith Harrington, Gerard Wicks, and Jamal Morrow finished with 734 combined receiving yards and finished 5, 6, and 7 respectively in team receptions last season.
The Cougars receiving corps knows exactly what needs to be done in order for them to be able to contend for a Pac-12 title.
The Cougars find themselves ahead of Oklahoma State and Ole Miss and just behind Texas A&M and USC.
