Adding and subtracting with Cougar walk ons
Gone are the names of defensive lineman Palmer Sandel, a sophomore transfer from Western Oregon; freshman receiver Dewan Lee Thompson of Los Angeles; and freshman punter John Weibacher of Encino, Calif.. Meanwhile, the following five have been added to the roster: JC transfer cornerback Isiah Fullerton-Talley (6-0, 190) of Renton; offensive lineman Derek Crites (6-6, 285) of Leavenworth, Wash.; linebacker Taylor Comfort (5-11, 206) of Sultan, Wash.; linebacker Drew Griffin (5-11, 218) of Tacoma; and defensive back C.J. Lane (5-9, 170) of Fort Worth, Texas. Technically speaking, punter Jordan Dascalo of Woodland Hills, Calif., also belongs to this group of additions because he wasn’t listed on WSU’s pre-camp roster, but his arrival on the team was widely expected and we’ve counted him since Day One of camp. Griffin (pictured above) is probably the most familiar name among the newcomers because he starred for three seasons on both sides of the ball for Ballarmine Prep and helped the Lions reach the state 4A championship game his junior year. In three years at Bellarmine he caught 92 passes for 1,264 yards and nine TDs, while on defense he collected 187 total tackles and 15 interceptions. RELATED STORIES from the CF.C archives:
