    Apparently, he will be in the lineup next year. It's merely a scopable injury.

    This kid transferred to Washington State. WTF? Kid's from south Florida!

    DT McDougle transfers to Washington St. from West Virginia

    The 6-foot, 303-pound McDougle appeared in 11 games in 2017 as a true freshman with the Mountaineers. He notched 23 tackles, including four for loss, and two sacks.

    Although West Virginia granted McDougle a release from his scholarship, the school restricted him from transferring to other schools in the Big 12 Conference or to future non-conference opponents.

    Makes sense. He had a hell of a year for an underrated freshman DT prospect (and he was listed at 5'11 on WVU's roster).

    Good DT's are literally Worth Their Weight in Gold (with Slayton, that's a lot). Good luck to the young man out west, of course, Pullman is a completely different environment that the Coastal West Coast Schools. It sits on an old Lava Bed. There is really fascinating Geography in that part of the Country.

    Especially Snoqualmie pass during the winter. Mandatory tire chains during certain blizzards. Talk about a drive that's hazardous to ones health.

    Yes, there are lots of tough passes in the Cascades due to altitude combined with being north of the 45th parallel. I may be wrong, but I think that the nearest mountains to Pullman are either in Canada or more likely Idaho. The extensive grasslands that now sit upon the old lava beds out there are quite different from most of the ones in the Plains States, being more varied in terrain. If he's exceedingly fortunate, he may get to see a Pronghorn Antelope, the fastest land creature in the Americas. They make many of Africa's antelopes look comparatively slow, weak and not very agile.
