  Washington State quarterback Cameron Ward became the latest big name quarterback to announce plans to enter the transfer portal on Friday. Ward posted on social media that he will be evaluating his prospects for the NFL draft while also entering his name in the portal as a grad transfer. Ward was fourth in the country throwing for for 3,736 yards and 25 touchdowns this season for the Cougars. But it was a tumultuous season for Washington State that started with the school being left out in the latest round of conference realignment, included a 4-0 start and was followed by a six-game losing streak.

Ward was at the center of praise for Washington State's hot start but also criticism for the losing streak that cost the Cougars a chance at a bowl game. Washington State's season ended last week with a 24-21 loss to rival Washington. If Ward stays in college this will be his second transfer. He started his career at FCS school Incarnate Word, where he threw for 4,648 yards and 47 touchdowns in the 2021 season. Ward arrived in Pullman before the 2022 season and threw for 3,232 yards and 23 touchdowns in his first season with the Cougars. - AP College Football

  Washington State restocked its receiving corps, securing commitments from two Division I transfer pass-catchers who played significant roles at their previous stops. Former UNLV standout Kyle Williams and Josh Kelly, a big-play threat at Fresno State over the past three years, both pledged to WSU's football program on Saturday. WSU shored up a shorthanded position group just one day after announcing the hiring of new offensive coordinator Ben Arbuckle, who led Western Kentucky to a highly productive season in 2022.

Williams and Kelly, considering their experience and production, should be expected to contend for first-team responsibilities next year in Arbuckle's modified version of the Air Raid. Williams registered 1,568 yards and nine touchdowns on 117 receptions across 25 games over the past three seasons. A graduate of St. Monica Catholic High in California, Williams broke into the Rebels' starting lineup as a true freshman in 2020. He earned the Mountain West Conference's freshman of the year award after leading his team with 426 yards and two touchdowns on 35 receptions during the six-game campaign. - Spokesman-Review

  WSU's defense loses a host of veteran pieces, including its three top linebackers, most of its depth at defensive tackle and a team captain in the secondary. All-Pac-12 linebacker Daiyan Henley is off to the NFL. Standout nickel Armani Marsh and cornerback Derrick Langford Jr. are graduating after three seasons in the starting lineup. DTs Christian Mejia, Antonio Pule III and Amir Mujahid are gone, too. Nusi Malani, a rotational DT this year who logged two sacks, should capture a starting job next year. The most encouraging news of the offseason so far: Jackson and fellow All-Pac-12 "edge" Ron Stone Jr. confirmed they will be back in 2023. WSU's edge-rushing room is well-stocked for the future. Two first-team safeties will presumably return, along with Chau Smith-Wade, who emerged as one of the Pac-12's most proficient coverage cornerbacks this year. - Spokesman-Review
