Washington State WR Keith Harrington on his transition from RB to H; how offense needs to respond after disappointing scrimmage

PULLMAN – The Cougar offense came out “a little flat” in Saturday’s scrimmage, and that’s something they simply cannot do, says Washington State H receiver Keith Harrington. The third-year sophomore also talks about his transition from running back to slot receiver in a compelling interview with CF.C’s Zach Anders.

Washington State’s Harrington spent his high school career at both running back and wide receiver, and was recruited by WSU as a receiver. But he’s spent his Cougar career at running back - until a move to the “H” about midway through fall ball given the overflow of talent in the backfield with Jamal Morrow, Gerard Wicks and James Williams.

Harrington says he’s very comfortable working the field and creating space as a slot receiver, but also added it's not going to be easy to earn reps on Saturdays, and that he will spend the rest of the fall camp making his case in another talent-filled position.

As he tackles a new position, and after missing the whole of the spring with an injury, Harrington has a simple goal.

"I just want to be a big playmaker… when we’re down, when we’re up, anytime we need a big play," Harrington says.
