WSU safety Suli Hameed hangs up the cleats

WASHINGTON STATE SAFETY Suli Hameed has called it a career, WSU SID confirmed to CF.C on Tuesday.

Details were not disclosed but Hameed (5-10, 185) has battled injuries since his true freshman season in 2014. He will remain in school at Washington State.

Hameed appeared in six games his first season at Washington State, making three starts with 17 tackles and a pass breakup. He became a WSU fan favorite for his physical style, with good coverage skills and closing speed.

But he missed the last two games of the '14 campaign to injury, suffered a setback after a strong '15 spring session, and then missed the entire 2015 season as well. 

Hameed also missed his entire high school junior season due to injury, but came back as a senior to play four different positions (quarterback, running back, receiver and safety), and earn a 3-star safety rating by Scout.com.

Despite the loss of Hameed, Washington State's safety corps (and the defensive secondary as a whole) shapes up as a team strength headed into fall camp.  Fall ball kicks off Saturday in Lewiston.
