Witherill gone, roster moves, more to come?
CF.C last month reported Fabian Boeke, will end his playing career due to his continued back problems, the only question was if WSU would get his scholarship back. On Tuesday, Bone said Boeke will indeed become a medical noncounter.
"As for Nick, he is going to pursue his athletic and academic opportunities at another school and we wish him nothing but the best," said Bone.
Bone said the Cougars have no plans to fill Witherill's scholarship at this time.
One possible move down the road to fill that slot could be Steven Bjornstad, the 6-10, 215-pounder out of Columbia River.

Meanwhile, center Charlie Enquist has been awarded a scholarship for the 2009-10 season.
Enquist, a redshirt sophomore, appeared in 11 games in 2008-09, averaging 1.0 points per game in 4.8 minutes of action an outing.
"Putting Charlie Enquist back on scholarship was one of the priorities for us this spring," said Bone. "With a number of big kids graduating from the program in the past two seasons and the injury to Fabian, we're counting on Charlie to contribute immediately."
Boeke appeared in three games for the Cougars last season as a sophomore after missing the 2007-08 season due to NCAA eligibility issues. During that season, Boeke underwent back surgery. Witherill, a native of Phoenix, Ariz., appeared in six games for the Cougars as a freshman in 2008-09, averaging 3.3 minutes an outing.
"Fabian's medical situation will not allow him to continue playing for the Cougars, though he will remain at Washington State to complete his education," said Bone.
