WASHINGTON STATE announced Tuesday that Romeo Pellum, a starting cornerback last season, will transfer to another school. Pellum did not participate in spring practices after being suspended from the football team for an undisclosed violation of team rules.

Romeo Pellum was WSU’s top cornerback as a sophomore last season, but the Cougars’ defense ranked among the worst in school history. Pellum led WSU with six pass breakups, tied for first with two interceptions, ranked second with 51 unassisted tackles and came in third in total tackles with 65.

A prime candidate to replace Pellum is Cal transfer Brandon Jones, who starred at O’Dea High School in Seattle.

Pellum, from Santa Fe Springs, Calif., was a member of Bill Doba's final recruiting class at WSU. He played as a true freshman, mostly on special teams in 2007, and then broke into the starting lineup last season.
