For the third time this month, a member of the Washington State football program has found his name in the names following an off-field incident.
The latest is wide receiver Gabe Marks, who the Spokane Spokesman-Review reports cited in an alcohol-related incident early Sunday morning. Officially, Marks was cited for “MIP-Exhibiting,” which is police speak for a minor exhibiting the effects of alcohol consumption.
The school is aware of the latest incident involving one of its football players, and will handle the matter internally.
Marks finished the 2012 season with 49 receptions and 560 yards as a freshman. Thanks to Marquess Wilson‘s chaotic and messy exit from the program, Marks is the Cougars’ leading returning receiver.
In early February, it was reported that running back Leon Brooks was charged with drunk driving. A day later, walk-on wide receiver Drew Loftus was charged with third-degree theft, minor in possession of alcohol and public intoxication. Loftus was subsequently dismissed from the football program.
