Washington State linebacker Dominick Silvels announces decision to enter transfer portal
UPDATED: Tue., Dec. 10, 2019
Dominick Silvels, a Washington State linebacker who led the Cougars in sacks last year but missed the entirety of the 2019 season with undisclosed personal issues, has entered the transfer portal and won’t return to Pullman next season.
Silvels was one of the most productive players on WSU’s defense in 2018, playing in all 13 games and leading the Cougars with 4 1/2 sacks, while finishing with 7 1/2 tackles for loss and 25 total tackles.
The San Diego native and Patrick Henry High product was projected to play an important role for WSU’s defense in 2019 after switching from “Rush” linebacker to the middle linebacker position he played as a freshman in Pullman.
