Fresno State redshirt freshman Chason Virgil was named the school's starting QB.

Fresno State's success has dropped off a cliff over the last few years. Virgil was considered the favorite throughout the entire process and head coach Tim DeRuyter said the second year passer clearly separated himself. The Bulldogs open against Nebraska.

Cal graduate QB Zach Kline will attend Fresno State for his final season of eligibility.

The Bulldogs now have six quarterbacks on the roster, however, that number could diminish before the start of the season due to injuries and possible transfers. One example: sophomore Kilton Anderson recently underwent surgery on his throwing shoulder and will be sidelined for some time. Kline has a chance to earn playing time, something that has escaped him since losing the quarterback competition to Jared Goff back in 2014.

Cal graduate QB Zach Kline plans to transfer for his final season of eligibility.

Kline has been a nomad during his college career, beginning at Cal before transferring to a Junior College, then to Indiana State, then back to Cal. The move might be in response to Davis Webb joining Cal after transferring to Texas Tech.

Former Cal, JUCO and Indiana State redshirt junior QB Zach Kline will transfer back Cal.

What a ride it's been to get back to Berkeley! The former four-star prospect signed with the Bears in 2012, was redshirted and then had 82 attempts and three touchdown passes as a second-year freshman in 2013. After that, a true freshman, some guy named Jared Goff, showed up to campus. Thus began Kline's odyssey. He announced that he would transfer to Oregon State in December 2013 but had changed his mind before the summer even descended. Instead, he played at Butte College in California in 2014 and then jumped to Indiana State last season. Now, he's back where it all began. "Zach’s a great kid, popular kid," Bears head coach Sonny Dykes said. "I said, ‘Yeah, we’d love to have you back.'" Kline re-joins the roster as a walk-on, so Dykes doesn't even have to burn a scholarship on rolling the dice on a blast from the past as he seeks Goff's heir.

Fresno State senior LB Ejiro Ederaine accepted an invite to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Ederain's backed by some impressive numbers. The two-time second-team All-Mountain West selection has racked up 45.5 tackles for loss, a mark that's good for second all-time in the conference. The 6-foot-3, 234-pound senior's also logged 21 career sacks. This past season, Ederain recorded 97 tackles--he had three games with double-digit tackles--nine sacks and a pair of interceptions.

Fresno State senior CB/S Charles Washington will play in the NFLPA Bowl.

Washington is probably ticketed for corner in the NFL, assuming he can hang, because of his frame (5-foot-11, 195 pounds), though he does offer some versatility. He started the first four games this season at cornerback before moving back to strong safety, where he started the rest of the season outside of one game (he missed the Air Force contest due to injury). Missing that game snapped his streak of 34 consecutive starts. Washington posted 40 tackles with six pass breakups.

Fresno State QB Ford Childress will miss the remainder of the season with an internal injury.

With QBs Zack Greenlee in jeopardy of being suspended and Chason Virgil out for the season with injury, former West Virginia QB Ford Childress may be pressed into starting duty for Fresno State this weekend.

Remember him? The only person standing in Childress' way now is Greenlee, recently arrested on suspicion of public intoxication and drinking in public. "We’re not going to make an announcement on anything that’s going to happen, whether he’s playing or not playing, until Saturday," coach Tim DeRuyter said. Childress showed flashes of arm talent in 2013.

In a review of Fresno State senior WR Aaron Peck (foot) prior to his season-ending injury, NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter wrote that "a strong senior season displaying the speed and agility to be a factor after the catch will help him rise up draft boards."

Unfortunately, Peck will miss the season after suffering a left foot injury earlier this month. It was a devastating turn of events both for the player and his team, who hoped Peck would assume the No. 1 WR role with Josh Harper off to the NFL. The 6-foot-3, 217-pound Peck hauled in 32 passes for 419 yards (13.1 YPC) and three touchdowns last season. He should take a redshirt and try to rehab his draft stock in 2016.

Fresno State freshman RB Bryson Oglesby will likely sit out the 2015 season.

Oglesby is a partial academic qualifier, meaning he did not fully qualify academically to receive a scholarship. Oglesby, who was considered a three-star recruit, will be able to practice with the team all season.

Former Washington State junior CB Daquawn Brown will transfer to Fresno State.

Brown was dismissed last December after he started 11 of 12 games for a "violation of team rules." That offense took place after Brown was charged with felony second-degree assault. He will need to redshirt the 2015 season.

Former West Virginia QB Ford Childress will attempt to walk on at Fresno State.

Childress received interest from Texas and Texas A&M, but ultimately decided to cast his lost with FSU head coach Tim DeRuyter and the Bulldogs. Childress, who didn't play last year after being suspended for a violation of team rules chance, has a chance to win the starting QB job immediately. He'll take on redshirt sophomore Zack Greenlee, redshirt freshman Kilton Anderson and true freshman Chason Virgil this summer.

Fresno State redshirt freshman RB Kurt Scoby will transfer to Azusa Pacific.

Scoby suffered a concussion last fall and ended up redshirting his only season with the Bulldogs. Because it is a drop in level, Scoby will be allowed to play immediately. He should help fill in for the loss of Terrell Watson.
