Multiple accounts out of Pullman this morning have confirmed rumblings
that Marquess Wilson's future
with the Washington State football program is in serious
The Washington State Sports Information Department confirmed this
morning "Wilson has been suspended for a violation of team rules."
The junior wide receiver from Tulare, Calif., has consistently been
ridiculed for his work ethic and butted heads with head coach Mike
Leach on multiple occasions. Wilson lost his starting job two
games ago against Stanford due to Dominique
Williams' effort in practice and his ability to "outplay" the
Cougars' leading receiver.
According to the Moscow-Pullman Daily News, the Cougars held a practice
last night, but it ended up being a conditioning practice and within 20
minutes, Wilson quit the session.
It remains to be seen whether this becomes a permanent situation,
though it's hard imagining Leach disclosing any details surrounding
Wilson's absence. Leach holds his weekly press conference at 1
p.m. and there will be follow-up developments as they become available.
Wilson, the Cougars' leading receiver this season, has 813 yards on 52
receptions and is only eight receptions away from becoming the Cougars'
all-time leading receptions leader. Earlier this year, he passed
Brandon Gibson for first place on the all-time receiving yards list.
