 Draft Scout College Football Player News: Washington State
Previous 15 Notes Next 15 Notes


  Approximately one month after a controversial phone call between Nick Rolovich and Kassidy Woods leaked to members of the media, the Washington State wide receiver has indicated he plans to finish his college football career somewhere other than Pullman. According to 247Sports.com, Woods, a redshirt sophomore, entered the transfer portal Monday, becoming the fourth WSU receiver to make that decision in a span of just three weeks. The Cougars have now lost Woods, fellow redshirt sophomore Rodrick Fisher, senior Tay Martin and freshman Mike Pettway to the portal since Aug. 18. Seeing Woods' name in the portal doesn't come as a great surprise one month after he was in the middle of an incident with Rolovich, WSU's first-year coach, that drew national headlines. - Spokesman-Review

  John Bledsoe, a walk-on quarterback at Washington State and the son of former Cougar great Drew Bledsoe, has entered the NCAA transfer portal, he announced on Twitter Thursday afternoon. "After a lot of thought and careful consideration, I have decided to enter the transfer portal," Bledsoe wrote. "I want to thank my teammates, Coach Rolo and Coach Stutz for their support. I will always love my time in Pullman and will forever be a Coug. Excited for the future!" Bledsoe never played in a game for the Cougars and was shelved for the entirety of the 2019 season, his redshirt sophomore year, with an undisclosed leg injury.

Despite his status as a walk-on, Bledsoe, at 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds, possessed plenty of physical tools and showed flashes of potential during the team's scrimmages, leading some to think he could've had a chance to compete to replace Anthony Gordon before the season was shuttered by COVID-19. In the offseason, Bledsoe has spent time working out with Will Hewlett of QB Collective, the same coach who trained Gordon prior to the 2020 NFL draft. Bledsoe, a native of Bend, Oregon, will have two more years of eligibility beginning next fall, but would presumably have to sit out one season if he elects to transfer to another FBS school. - Spokesman-Review

  Despite entering his name in the NCAA transfer portal last week, Washington State's Skyler Thomas will stay put this fall and finish his college career with the Cougars. Thomas announced the news Monday morning on Twitter: "I will be pulling my name from the transfer portal and returning to WSU." The Pacific-12 Conference's postponement of fall football two weeks ago prompted the Southern California native to enter his name in the portal and seek opportunities elsewhere. While the Pac-12 and Big Ten have moved on from the idea of playing this fall, the Big 12, Atlantic Coast Conference and Southeastern Conference still plan on a season starting next month. Thomas' WSU teammate, wide receiver Tay Martin, made a similar decision and found a vacant scholarship at Oklahoma State, announcing his transfer to the Big 12 Cowboys on Saturday. - Spokesman-Review

  Rodrick Fisher, the one-time East Valley standout who started six games at wide receiver for Washington State last season, has entered his name in the NCAA transfer portal, Rivals.com reported Monday. On February 27, The Spokesman-Review learned the Spokane native had left the Cougars football program after a successful redshirt freshman season under Mike Leach. Fisher's reasons for leaving the program were unknown and the player's name hadn't resurfaced until Monday afternoon, when Rivals.com's Transfer Portal Twitter account reported he'd slipped his name into the database, suggesting he plans to continue his college football career, presumably somewhere other than WSU. A former two-sport star at East Valley, Fisher impressed WSU coaches during fall camp in 2019 and claimed the starting job at "X" receiver, beating out a more established player in Tay Martin, who recently announced his own transfer to Oklahoma State. - Spokesman-Review

  08/06/20 - Pat NunnrSo/2023, Washington State, 6-3, 210 (DS#999 CB) + More +

  Patrick Nunn isn't sure he'd be able to live with himself if the Washington State defensive back didn't do everything in his power to inspire change in what he and many of his Pac-12 Conference peers believe is a broken NCAA system. "I don't think I'd be able to go to sleep at night with peace knowing I didn't try to do something," Nunn said. "It's about being silent, and sometimes silence is betrayal. Some of us just have the moral obligation to try and get through."

That's why Nunn elected to do something that has become increasingly popular among Pac-12 football players - and admittedly unpopular in other circles - by formally opting out of the 2020 college football season, assuming there still is one this fall. Nunn, who played mostly as a nickel back for the Cougars last season and would've competed for a starting position after making two starts in 2019, becomes the second WSU player to formally opt out, joining wide receiver Kassidy Woods, who's also a redshirt sophomore. "My decision of opting out is because of everything that's going on that we mentioned," said Nunn, referencing a Sunday press release from the Pac-12's "We are United" group. "I'm not just doing this for myself, I'm doing this for the future of the NCAA as well." - Spokesman-Review

  For the past few months, wide receiver Kassidy Woods has contemplated whether to suit up for Washington State's football team this fall as the coronavirus pandemic raged through his home state of Texas and much of the West Coast, where he'd be playing the majority of his games in the Pacific-12 Conference. When Woods was a freshman, athletic trainers discovered he possessed the sickle cell trait - something that could cause complications if Woods was ever exposed to COVID-19, or contracted the virus himself.

The redshirt sophomore maintains the Pac-12 hasn't done enough to address health and safety concerns since inviting players back to campus for voluntary workouts, and worries he'll be compromised when the Cougars travel to play games outside of Pullman. "Because I do have sickle cell trait, and with this COVID it affects the respiratory system, so I just wasn't comfortable playing at all," Woods told The Spokesman-Review on Sunday. "And I haven't heard any plans ensuring we'd be safe." - The Spokesman-Review

  Washington State's quarterback room finally found the one thing it was lacking: experience. For the third straight season, the Cougars have picked up a graduate transfer quarterback and for the second year in a row, they went the Big Sky Conference route to do so. Jake Constantine, a one-time Boise State quarterback who played a season at Ventura College before leading Weber State to a pair of Big Sky titles, announced on Twitter he'd be spending his final college football season in Pullman. Before opting to play in the Pac-12, Constantine had planned to transfer to Towson, committing in late May and signing with the FCS Tigers on June 24. Constantine is still listed on Towson's official roster. His decision to leave Towson could be tied to the Colonial Athletic Association recently canceling its football season due to the coronavirus pandemic. - Spokesman-Review
