Washington State cornerback Pat Porter leaves team

Washington State cornerback Pat Porter has left the team, according to Cougars head coach Mike Leach. 

Porter's departure isn't entirely unexpected, says Jacob Thorpe of The Spokesman-Review:

“The cornerback, who grew up in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, was firmly a Mike Breske recruit. Porter once told me that he decided to play for Washington State in large part because he was so impressed that Breske braved a freak snow storm to visit him in his home, and his relationship with the former defensive coordinator obviously played a big role in getting Porter to choose WSU over offers from Cincinnati, Minnesota, Miami and other schools.”

Porter was among the most impressive members of the Cougars' team as a freshman, but had struggled adapting to the new coaching staff.
