Kingma suspended indefinitely

COUGARS

FROM SAN FRANCISCO — We spoke with Ken Bone for a bit today at Pac-12 media day festivities, and he confirmed that freshman guard Brett Kingma has been suspended indefinitely. Read on.

WSU’s Kingma arrested early Saturday morning

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — Washington State guard Brett Kingma, who joined the team this season after transferring from Oregon, was arrested early Saturday morning on suspicion of possession of marijuana less than 40 grams, and minor exhibiting the effects of having consumed alcohol in a public place. More after the jump.

Kingma good to go, Johnson still waiting

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — Washington State officially confirmed the transfer of Brett Kingma from Oregon to play for the Cougars men's basketball team this season. He's enrolled in classes and is part of the team going forward.

The big news: Kingma, a sought-after guard from Mill Creek, Wash., who held multiple Pac-12 offers as a high-school senior in 2011, will be a walk-on at WSU.

As far as I know, it's unclear if Kingma's walk-on status will matter in regards to the NCAA transfer rule — he should still have to sit out this season, though there has been no official word from WSU in that regard.

WSU is still waiting for the NCAA to rule on the eligibility of freshman Que Johnson, who is in Pullman and is taking classes. A decision is expected relatively soon.

Receivers, practice, hoops news and a live chat

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — Washington State will be on the practice field early this morning, their first and only 9:15 a.m. practice of camp. We'll be there, but hurry up and read these links first because a lot happened yesterday.

Brett Kingma announces transfer to WSU via Twitter

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — With the Washington State basketball team still in Australia, it might be awhile before this is officially confirmed. But former Oregon guard Brett Kingma announced on his Twitter page this afternoon that he will be transferring to WSU.

Kingma was granted his release by Oregon in early June. He will have to sit out this season per NCAA transfer rules — though intra-conference transfers are sometimes forced to sit two seasons, that rule is rarely enforced and my assumption would be that it won't be here — and should be available to play as a redshirt sophomore in the 2013-14 season.

Kingma, who is from Mill Creek, Wash., was rated as a 3-star prospect by Scout.com and held offers from Washington and Arizona State, among others. He averaged 3.1 points per game for Oregon last season as a lightly-used reserve, averaging 9.1 minutes per game.

Kingma told the Seattle Times after leaving Oregon that “I need a new system where I can reach my full potential.”

We will pass along more information as it becomes available.
