With the departures of Tavares Martin, Jr. and Isaiah Johnson-Mack, the Washington State Cougars need all the help they can get at receiver and today, they got some. Junior college wide receiver Calvin Jackson faxed in his letter of intent, 10 months after committing to WSU.
Jackson is a two-star receiving prospect who has spent the past two seasons at Independence Community College in Kansas. He was originally committed to Toledo out of high school but went the junior college route and followed a former Toledo coach, WSU’s Derek Sage, to Pullman. He finished his sophomore season with 381 receiving yards and four touchdowns.
Jackson figures to at least be in the mix to get some playing time up front when he makes it to Pullman this summer. Former junior college wide receiver Easop Winston will be coming off a redshirt and Jamire Calvin, Renard Bell and Kyle Sweet are all there but, at the rate WSU churns through receivers in a game, Jackson has a chance to get on the field.
If he doesn’t, he has three years to play two at WSU, so he can redshirt as well.
