High Marks on Day 2


FROM PULLMAN -- The second day of Washington State's preseason training camp brought some personnel news, as well as the story of a highly touted freshman who's already turning heads. We have links to all of the above after the jump.

DAY 3 FORECAST — High of 89 degrees, 28 percent humidity (

In today's newspaper, you will find a story about true freshman receiver Gabriel Marks, who coaches think is already showing maturity beyond his years on the practice field. We also blogged a bit about yesterday's practice. And we were supposed to have a video interview with freshman safety Taylor Taliulu, but it appears as if our trusty iPhone has consumed it. I said a good many swears upon realizing this. Here's a brief practice report from WSU's official athletics website. … Sorry, Vince, but with little else on the WSU front today, we're linking Ted Miller's mailbag. It features a question about WSU's defense. … Single-game tickets for WSU home games go on sale this morning at 10. … released some Week 1 betting lines yesterday. WSU is a 13.5-point underdog at BYU. … Speaking of BYU, the other Cougars say they'll be fine without their top running back.

Around the Pac-12 … An unlikely leader is emerging for Arizona, which, like WSU, is one of a few Pac-12 teams already practicing. … Arizona State got going on Friday. … California will get going today. … A sophomore receiver is giving Utah a lift. … UCLA also begins camp today. … Here are some college football observations from the LA Times.

All for now. We'll be back later with notes from Day 3 of WSU's training camp.
