Times have been tough at the Washington State football field for some time now, but Marquess Wilson's stellar play hasn't gone unnoticed. He was picked by CBSsports.com to their preseason All-Pac-12 team, as well as a First Team All-American.
Wilson had a touchdown reception in eight games last year as he completed his second 1,000-yard season as a Cougar. He joins USC's Robert Woods and Marqise Lee as the wide receivers.
Despite the Cougars, um, issues in the win department over the past few years, Wilson has been a big bright spot on the Palouse with his stellar play. He had a touchdown reception in eight games last year as a sophomore and in three of them he caught more than one. With back-to-back 1,000 yard seasons receiving under his belt, expect a third with a healthy quarterback and explosive offense. He's also a CBSSports.com First Team All-American.
Wilson was the only Washington collegiate athlete selected for the list, although Washington's Austin Seferian-Jenkins almost made the list at tight end. Washington State defensive ends Travis Long and Josh Shirley also got name recognition.
