Austin Apodaca, Alex Jackson find new homes

A few players who left the WSU football team recently have landed at community colleges.

A handful of players left WSU since last season ended, headlined by backup quarterback Austin Apodaca. Sometimes when players transfer away, the announcement of their departure is the last you hear about them. Not all find new places to play football and even the ones who do can fly under the radar.

This year is a bit different and a few of the players already have new homes. Apodaca had a few options, including possibly staying at the FBS level. Ultimately, he'll head to Mesa Community College, according to Jacob Thorpe. He'll be eligible to play next year and could transfer to a FBS school as part of the 2015 recruiting class with two years of eligibility remaining.

Britton Ransford of has updates on a few other players. According to Britton, Alex Jackson is headed to Santa Monica (Calif.) College where he will move back to receiver. Offensive lineman Denzell Dotson is enrolled at Scottsdale (Ariz.) Community College while former corner/receiver Rahmel Dockery is officially walking on at Oregon State.

As always, if these things and recruiting in general interest you, Britton is a great source of information both at and on Twitter at @bkransford.

For the story I spoke at length with strength and conditioning coach Jason Loscalzo, not just about Mayle but also River Cracraft, new recruits and more.
