A POST-SPRING DEPTH CHART was released by Washington State this week for Pac-12 Media Day. Keep in mind it doesn't list any of the new arrivals, such as WR Gabriel Marks and NT Ioane Gauta for example, who are expected to challenge for playing time when fall camp gets underway Aug. 2.

PULLMAN – The week off from our workouts came at a good time and the summer finish line, plus the start of fall camp, is in sight. We have the young guys with us now and that's resulted in a surprise or two.
PULLMAN – We asked Idaho over for some 7-on-7 drills this week. When it comes to summer 7-on-7s with another school, there's inevitably going to be some trash talk. But the thing is, some guys are good at it. Other guys are not.
