Catching up with WSU news


COUGARS

Sorry there hasn’t been much in the way of Washington State news here recently, but there has been a good reason for that. We explain, plus go into the status of basketball recruiting and a football injury, on the link, so read on.

• FYI, for the next few weeks I will be on vacation. But for the past couple, I have been dealing with some pretty intense medical fallout from my earlier illness. Things have finally started to settle down, but some tests are scheduled this month before anyone is sure exactly what the problem is. I want to pass along my thanks to everyone who has expressed concern, and I want to assure you I believe things will work out. … As for news, we’ll have a story in tomorrow’s S-R concerning Devonte Lacy, a 6-foot-3 senior-to-be guard from Curtis High. He’s WSU’s first – and possibly only – commit for the class of 2011, having pulled the trigger last week after standing out at the Cougar basketball camp. UPDATE: You can read our story here. You can also find more here… Kevin Noreen, the 6-10 forward WSU was pursuing for this year, has decided to go in another direction, signing with West Virginia this week. … Incoming freshmen Patrick Simon and Andre Winston are on campus for summer school. The two other members of the class, junior college standout Faisal Aden and Australian Dexter Kernich-Drew have yet to arrive and probably won’t be in Pullman until school starts. Kernich-Drew is dealing with the logistics of attending school in a foreign country – visa, permits, etc. – a process all imports go through. And Aden has to finish his AA this summer. The outlook on that is good, as far as I can discern. … A football note. Backup defensive back Anthony Houston, who was already rehabbing a bum ACL, ruptured his Achilles’ tendon a couple of weeks ago and has had surgery to fix it. Houston won’t be back on the field until mid-October at the earliest, so there may be some thought given to having the redshirt senior sit out and apply for a hardship waiver.

• That’s all for now. We’ll be back as events warrant. Until then …
