Barry Ware no longer listed on WSU roster

SECOND-YEAR FRESHMAN wide receiver Barry Ware is no longer listed on Washington State’s official roster. The 6-2, 213-pounder out of Corona, Calif., had not been seen in uniform since fall camp began back earlier this month.

Fans have been wondering about Ware’s absence since the first day of camp on Aug. 8. Because the first and last word on player departures from WSU is often simply the player’s name disappearing from the official roster, they’ll have to continue to wonder.

Mike Leach was asked by the media on a few occasions about Ware’s status this camp but the Cougars' head man would not comment other than to say he was focused on the players who were present, not those who were not.

It is unknown if Ware is still at WSU as a student this term. He was listed in the student directory at as of Wednesday morning.

Ware was a promising, physical wideout when he signed with Washington State in the 2014 class but he arrived late to Washington State in the fall. Ware missed all of his first fall camp before receiving academic clearance from the NCAA, first suiting up last season for a Washington State practice on September 9.

Ware showed flashes last season during Thursday Night Football and his name was brought up regularly at the Cougar Club lunches by Washington State coaches, including Leach, as a player who could potentially replace Vince Mayle at the X as soon as this season.

Two walk ons, CB Kemoree Jenkins and FB Thomas Hearn, are also no longer listed on the WSU roster.
