PULLMAN – The top receiver in Washington State history came home for Homecoming.

Gabe Marks, whose 316 career receptions are the most in school and Pac-12 history, returned to Pullman for Saturday’s game against Colorado at Martin Stadium. Marks joined the Cougars on the sideline and was introduced to the home crowd during a television break in the first quarter.

Marks also holds the WSU records for career touchdowns (37) and receiving yards. Despite the big numbers, Marks wasn’t selected in the 2017 NFL Draft and was signed by the New York Jets as a free agent. He was waived from the Jets’ practice on Sept. 2.
