Washington State to experiment with slot receiver Lincoln Victor on the outside
Washington State plans to shake things up with its wide receiver rotation this week, according to offensive coordinator Eric Morris.
Lincoln Victor, a 5-foot-9 junior receiver for the Cougs, is going to play some outside receiver going forward as the Cougs experiment with different receiver pairings on the field. Getting Victor, Renard Bell, and Robert Ferrel all on the field at once could make for an interesting receiver pairing, and it sounds like Morris wants to see how they’d perform.
#WSU OC Eric Morris says the Cougs will experiment with slot Lincoln Victor at outside receiver to "get a quicker guy on the outside and let him and (Renard Bell) and (Robert Ferrel) all be on the field at the same time."

The fourth-year junior has played the fourth-most snaps of any Wazzu receiver so far this season. All but one have come as a slot receiver.
Wazzu’s offense has come alive of late, scoring 72 points in its last two contests and 41 against the Oregon Ducks this past Saturday. But Victor saw just one target in the game despite being on the field for the most snaps of the year. As he hasn’t been able to get himself going, maybe a move outside could spark something.
He has nine catches for 114 yards through the first four. Wazzu has a deep group of receivers, and with Ferrel coming on strong of late, Morris is trying to keep everyone involved.
Washington State hosts Cal (2:30 p.m. PT; Pac-12 Network) on Saturday.
