Wilson left without a pro day

Marquess Wilson's career at Washington State ended unceremoniously, that much is for certain.

Now, the close relationship that many athletes share with their former college teams, appears to be in peril, too. How that will play out for the former record-setting Cougar receiver, no one knows. What is known, though, is Washington State does not want Wilson around the football facilities.

When Wilson asked to participate in Washington State's pro day on Thursday, his request was denied.

"Marquess would love to work out at their pro day, but they've said that he's not allowed on campus," said Cameron Foster, Wilson's agent. "Well, maybe not campus. He's not allowed to work out there.

"It's very unfortunate how his career ended and it's very unfortunate what's going on currently between Marquess and WSU. Marquess still considers himself a Cougar. The regime does not."

Foster declined to comment on who he was in contact with at Washington State, but said he "talked to a person over there."

Wilson left the Cougar program in November and alleged abuse by the coaching staff. The program was cleared of any wrongdoings by both the university and the Pac-12 after investigations.

Instead of participating in Pullman, Wilson was planning on participating at Eastern Washington's pro day on Wednesday. Former Cougar quarterback Jeff Tuel was also going partake, but both an NFL rule prohibits players from a larger school participating in pro days at smaller schools.

"It's not really a disappointment," said Wilson while he watched Eastern players workout in front of scouts in the Eagles weight room. "I just feel like it would have just helped me out a little more. All in all, I was happy with what I was able to do at the combine. It's not really a disappointment with this decision."

Wilson ran a 4.51 second 40-yard dash at the combine in February, but really impressed with the three cone drill. His time of 6.65 seconds was second for all receivers at the combine, which is a measure of quickness and agility.

He also owns impressive numbers from his days at Washington State, where his 3,207 career receiving yards in three seasons ranks first all-time at the school.

Foster said Wilson has private workouts and team visits set up, which will give the 6-foot-3 receiver an opportunity to showcase both his talents and personality before the April 25 NFL draft.
