Bobby Ratliff leaves WSU

Washington State wide receiver posted on his Instagram account that he is done playing football today. Ratliff, who would have been a redshirt senior this upcoming fall, posted:

Football has been everything and the only thing to me for the last 14 years. But with God and my family I've decided it was time to move on and start the rest of my life. There's nothing I'll miss more than being around my brothers in the locker room and I appreciate the love and understanding I've received from them. On that note it's still and forever will be Go Cougs ! #gocougs

Ratliff caught 27 passes last season for 243 yards. His best game as a Cougar came against No. 17 UCLA in 2012 when he had five catches for 123 yards, including a 49-yard reception.
