  Nick Rolovich's first spring camp as Washington State's head football coach was over before it could start because of the COVID-19 pandemic. More than 365 days later, Rolovich and the Cougars will take the field Thursday for the first of 15 spring practices at Rogers Field and Martin Stadium. Practices will be open to media but closed to the public. The annual Crimson & Gray game will take place on April 24 at 2 p.m. and air on the Pac-12 Networks. - Spokesman-Review

  Ayden Hector's career with the Washington State football team appears to be over after just three games. Hector, who started at strong safety in two games for the Cougars after walking on to the team in October, and won Pac-12 Freshman of the Week after contributing to three turnovers in a loss to Oregon, has entered the NCAA transfer portal, he announced Tuesday on social media. The Seattle native and former Stanford signee had been serving an indefinite suspension from football activities after being arrested in February for a fraudulent ID and being a minor in possession. It's unclear if that suspension would've carried into spring workouts. Hector was a four-star prospect coming out of high school powerhouse Eastside Catholic in Burien, Washington. - Spokesman-Review

  Four days after reporting Washington State's Ayden Hector was suspended from football activities for a violation of team rules, The Spokesman-Review learned the freshman safety was recently arrested by Pullman Police after attempting to purchase alcohol at a grocery store with false identification. According to Cmdr. Jake Opgenorth, Pullman Police responded to a report of a fake ID at Dissmore's IGA Pullman on Feb. 2 at 9:55 p.m. Hector, who later explained to police he was buying alcohol to celebrate a friend's birthday, was arrested and placed in the back of a patrol car where an officer issued citations before releasing him, Opgenorth said. Hector, who was cited for displaying/possessing fraudulent identification and minor in possession, is scheduled to appear in court on March 4, a Whitman County Court Supervisor confirmed to The Spokesman-Review. - Spokesman-Review

  Washington State went to extreme lengths to convince Jamire Calvin to begin his college football career in Pullman, but it appears the former four-star receiver will finish it elsewhere. Calvin, one of the highest-rated recruits to sign at Washington State and someone who was projected to reclaim his starting position in the fall, announced Friday night he'll be entering the NCAA transfer portal as a graduate transfer. Although his career in Pullman was shortened by injuries, Calvin took advantage of his time in the Air Raid and run-and-shoot offenses, catching 92 passes for 980 yards and five touchdowns. - Spokesman-Review

  Washington State starting quarterback Jayden de Laura has been suspended from the team after his arrest in Pullman on suspicion of driving under the influence. The freshman started all four games for Washington State last fall. The Spokesman-Review reports that the 19-year-old de Laura was arrested on a misdemeanor DUI charge early Saturday. According to police, de Laura was pulled over at 2:13 a.m. after driving through a stop sign and subsequently driving the wrong way. De Laura failed a field sobriety test, but police weren’t able to register his blood-alcohol level after he refused to take a breathalyzer test. - AP College Football

  With a crowded backfield and limited opportunities for a traditional fullback in Nick Rolovich's run-and-shoot offense, former walk-on and fan favorite Clay Markoff confirmed to The Spokesman-Review he plans to spend his final year of eligibility somewhere other than Pullman. The NCAA Transfer Portal Twitter account first reported Markoff's plans to enter the portal Wednesday morning and he wrote a parting message to WSU Thursday afternoon. Although Markoff came to the Cougars as a fullback, he converted to running back during Mike Leach's final season in Pullman and stayed in that role under Rolovich last season. Markoff, who was placed on scholarship by Leach's staff in 2019, was primed for a bigger role as a redshirt junior but had his season derailed by an injury. - Spokesman-Review

  After appearing in just one game this season and missing three others for reasons that were undisclosed, Washington State safety Tyrese Ross has entered the NCAA transfer portal. Ross announced his decision to transfer on Twitter late Tuesday afternoon and indicated he'll be playing elsewhere this fall. Entering the shortened 2020 season, Ross was projected to start at safety for the Cougars, but he didn't travel with the team to the season opener at Oregon State. Ross started at strong safety in the next game, versus Oregon at Martin Stadium, and was credited with two tackles, but he didn't travel with the Cougars in the final two games of the season, at USC and Utah. - Spokesman-Review

  When the 2020 football season ended, Abraham Lucas told reporters over a postgame Zoom call in Salt Lake City he'd take a private approach to the looming decision that would soon hang over his offseason, leaving few hints as to whether the Washington State right tackle would leave school for the NFL or return to the Cougars for his fourth season. On Monday, the deadline for underclassmen to submit their names to the NFL Draft came and went without a formal announcement from Lucas, who doesn't use Twitter, Instagram or any of the other social media platforms utilized by college football players to reveal such decisions. One day later, however, The Spokesman-Review confirmed WSU's big offensive tackle has elected to return to Pullman for a second redshirt junior season, bolstering an offensive line that should have an opportunity to be one of the best in the Pac-12 Conference. - Spokesman-Review

  Chris Jackson, a former Michigan State cornerback who just finished his redshirt sophomore season with the Spartans, announced his commitment to WSU on Thursday afternoon. With the NCAA's extra year of eligibility, Jackson will still be a redshirt sophomore this fall, and should have two more years to play after sitting out due to transfer rules. The Cougars have added four transfers this offseason, including Jackson. Tennessee quarterback Jarrett Guarantano and TCU linebacker Ben Wilson, a Sumner, Washington, native, have both enrolled at WSU and will participate in spring practice. Hawaii wide receiver Lincoln Victor, another transfer who played high school football in the Evergreen State, announced his commitment to the Cougars but hasn't signed a letter of intent. - Spokesman-Review

  In 2020, Max Borghi gave Washington State fans a small sample of what he could do in Nick Rolovich's run-and-shoot offense. In 2021, they'll get a full serving. After missing three of WSU's four games due to a back injury that was sustained during preseason camp, the junior running back announced Saturday evening he'll put an NFL career on hold and return to the Cougars for a fourth season. As a fourth-year player, he'll also have the opportunity to pick up an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl - a prestigious all-star event in Mobile, Alabama, designed for college seniors to showcase their talent to NFL scouts. - Seattle Times

  Jarrett Guarantano is headed to the PAC 12. The former Tennessee football quarterback announced Friday night he is transferring to Washington State. He is the second former Vols quarterback to transfer to the PAC 12, joining J.T. Shrout. Shrout transferred to Colorado. Guarantano entered the transfer portal after Tennessee's loss to Texas A&M on Dec. 19. - Knoxville News Sentinel

  When Lincoln Victor announced plans to transfer from the University of Hawaii last month, many pegged Washington State as a potential landing spot for the wide receiver. It made sense for a few reasons: Victor grew up in Camas, Washington, signed at Hawaii with Nick Rolovich before the coach's final season with the Rainbow Warriors and spent one year playing in Rolovich's run-and-shoot offense. Apparently there was mutual interest in a reunion. On Sunday, Victor announced on Twitter he'd be returning to the Evergreen State to play in the Pac-12 – a move that will bolster the depth in WSU's receiver room and give Rolovich's team another viable option on punt and kickoff returns. - The Spokesman-Review

  Running back Nakia Watson's time with the University of Wisconsin football program is over. The redshirt sophomore from Austin, Texas, has entered the NCAA transfer portal, a UW official confirmed Friday. 247Sports first reported the news. Watson was a four-star recruit coming out of Westlake High School in 2018 and redshirted his first season in Madison. He was the backup to Jonathan Taylor in 2019 and gained 331 yards and two touchdowns on 74 carries. He was expected to be one of the lead tailbacks for the Badgers this season. But the emergence of Jalen Berger, a four-star freshman running back, cut into Watson's snaps and he was listed as unavailable the last two games of the year. - Journal Sentinel
