ONE SPENT THREE years in the Kansas City Royals' farm system. Two are sons of former Cougar players -- one of them also the grandson of a WSU legend. Two others hail from the same Spokane high school that has produced some of the most storied names in Palouse history. Two from East King County have people scratching their heads over how they passed under the major college radar. And another is back home after a year of Division I-AA ball and ready to make a mark in the Pac-10.

PULLMAN — Monday marked the first official day of practice for the 2004 Cougars and the look of the club, on offense, was dramatically different than the last time we saw them. The receiving corps, inexperienced and showing it at the Crimson and Gray game in April, is bolstered by the return to health of three of its most talented members. Plus there's a solid JC transfer in the mix as well as hotshot freshman from California who showed Monday why he was a five-star prospect.
