More on an incoming WSU freshman


Thanks to Twitter, there was some news last night on the eligibility of one freshman. Read on.


• Late last evening, Washington State freshman-to-be Rahmel Dockery sent this out over Twitter: “Not going to Fall Camp. But I will be at WSU when school starts and will qualify to playing this season. Thank God.” The tweet could mean a lot of things, but one thing such news does rule out is Dockery was a non-qualifier under NCAA guidelines (if that was the case, he would be on his way to a junior college like fellow class of 2011 recruits Brock Lutes and Demetrius Cherry). But it doesn't look as if any of the five freshmen coach Paul Wulff expressed concerns about in Los Angeles last week will end up in Pullman for the start of camp tomorrow (the other two are linemen Alex Mitchell and Wendell Taiese). Whether Dockery plays this year or not (and if, as it sounds, he misses the first couple weeks, getting ready for this season would be pretty dang difficult), the good news for Cougar fans is it looks as if he will be in school.


• That's all for now. Until later …
