Cougars about to hit the two-thirds mark

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN -- Another Thursday, another spring football practice for Washington State. This one will be the Cougars' 10th of the spring, meaning they're almost two-thirds of the way done. Read on for some links.

...

We posted some video on the blog yesterday of Elliott Bosch, and conducted our weekly live chat, which you can read here. ... Also spent part of yesterday speaking with Roger Sandberg, the Pullman lawyer who defended Sekope Kaufusi against marijuana charges in March. Sandberg said those charges were dismissed on March 22. That was three weeks ago. Keep that in mind. ... ESPN.com takes a look at Jeff Tuel. ... WSU hosted a basketball recruit recently. The spring signing period began yesterday. Don't be surprised if the Cougars add another player to their recruiting class. ... Some cool footage here of the final beam being placed in the Martin Stadium project.

Around the Pac-12 ... Arizona guard Josiah Turner will transfer, to nobody's surprise, though there's also another defection that might not have been as anticipated. A Wildcats offensive lineman is making his way back from surgery. ... Arizona State has a difficult quarterback decision ahead. ... Some more details on Washington losing Colin Porter to shoulder injuries. A UW defensive lineman is trying to move past a tragedy. UW's new defensive coordinator is moving some guys around. ...

Stanford's tight end position takes on a different look. Stepfan Taylor looks like the man at running back. ... USC added another basketball player to its roster on the first day of the spring signing period. UCLA did, too, winning the Shabazz Muhammad sweepstakes, helping the Bruins' chances of a revival while also putting more pressure on Ben Howland to get it done. ... Colorado's replacement candidates for Paul Richardson are pretty inexperienced. ... A Utah defensive lineman is putting the ghosts of his high-school playing days in the past. The Utes signed a point guard from California after taking some heat this week for rescinding a player's offer.
