Washington State wide receiver hits the transfer portal
As fall camp approaches, the Washington State wideout room is getting a tad bit thinner.
Mitchell Quinn, a fifth-year wideout for Washington State, has entered the transfer portal. He confirmed the news on Twitter, saying he’s “just looking for an opportunity.”

Quinn began his career in Pullman as a preferred walk-on but worked his way onto a scholarship. As a redshirt freshman in 2019, he made four appearances while working exclusively out of the slot. In 2020, Quinn played just four snaps on offense.
Last season, the 5-foot-11 wideout made most of his hay on special teams. He was a return man on kickoffs and punts while also working on punt coverage a bit late in the season. He played just 43 snaps at wideout, where he caught two of his three targets for 29 yards.
The Cougars appear to have good depth in the wideout room heading into the new year. With De’Zhaun Stribling back, Renard Bell healthy, and more than a few promising receivers in the slot, new Cougar quarterback Cameron Ward isn’t without options.
