Texas State senior WR Elijah King caught six passes for 112 yards in Saturday's 20-13 loss to Appalachian State.

King (6'2/190) led the Bobcats in both catches and yardage, but Texas State simply couldn't find much of an offensive attack outside of the senior wideout. This past season, he posted a 28-453-2 receiving line. He had four catches for 85 yards to his fair name entering action on Saturday.

Suspended redshirt senior QB Damian Williams returned to practice on Saturday.

Williams was suspended due to what HC Everett Withers termed "academic and personal reasons" at the beginning of August. Jaylen Gipson, Willie Jones III, Kishawn Kelley and Jaylin Nelson are currently battling it out for starting rights, but if Mississippi State transfer Williams is good to go, he would be the team's most promising option.

Texas State sophomore RB Tyler Tutt (knee) will likely miss the entire season.

Tutt is still recovering from a knee injury. He’s expected to join the team once classes begin. We probably won't see him on the field until 2018.

Texas State HC Everett Withers suspended redshirt junior T.V. Williams for "academic and personal reasons."

"There’s no telling when they’ll get back or if they’ll get back," Withers said in announcing the suspension of Williams and redshirt senior QB Damian Williams. T.V. Williams played two seasons at Kentucky before transferring over. He sat out last year to satisfy NCAA bylaws.
Aug 1 - 3:09 PM

Athlon's Mike Bainbridge speculates that Texas State redshirt freshman RB Robert Brown will take over as starter now that Stedman Mayberry has left the team.

A two-star recruit who began his TSU career as a receiver, Brown sat out last season as a redshirt. He returns as perhaps TSU's leading candidate to lead the squad in carries this fall. With starting QB Damian Williams suspended, the Bobcats may lean heavily on the running game early on. Bainbridge believes junior RB Anthony Taylor will function as Brown's backup.

Texas State HC Everett Withers confirmed that junior RB Stedman Mayberry is off the team.

The Bobcats' leading returning rusher curiously plummeted down the depth chart to the third-team during spring camp. Withers mentioned that the backfield hierarchy was likely Mayberry's reason for leaving. Mayberry had 593 yards and five touchdowns on the ground while adding another 321 yards receiving on 41 receptions last year.

Texas State HC Everett Withers suspended redshirt senior QB Damian Williams for "academic and personal reasons."

Withers punished senior wideout T.V. Williams for the same reason. "There’s no telling when they’ll get back or if they’ll get back," Withers said. Bobcat fans should be hitting every available panic button right now. Texas State's offense was an abomination last year, and Damian Williams' arrival from Mississippi State was one of the few sources of hope through which improvement could be dreamed on. Until he returns, the Bobcats have a four-man competition going under center between the uninspiring quartet of Jaylen Gipson, Willie Jones III, Kishawn Kelley and Jaylin Nelson. If Williams is dismissed, this offense is in deep, deep trouble.

Texas State junior RB Stedman Mayberry is the team's leading returning rusher.

Mayberry had 593 yards and five touchdowns on the ground while adding another 321 yards receiving on 41 receptions last year. The Bobcats don't have much outside, so Mayberry may be one of QB Damian Williams’ top targets this fall, in addition to his work as the starting running back.

Texas State senior TE Gabe Schrade was named to the 2017 John Mackey Award Watch List.

After starting out his career working mostly as a special teams contributor, Schrade (6'4/227) finally earned some receiving work as a junior last season. For the campaign, he caught 25 passes for 286 yards and two touchdowns while working to an 11.4 yards-per-reception clip. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom ranks him as the No. 34 fantasy tight end in college football.
Jul 16 - 12:47 PM

Texas State HC Everett Withers said that redshirt senior QB Damian Williams' "[m]echanics are still all over the place with his feet."

Williams, who transferred over from Mississippi State in December, completed 14-of-22 passes for 172 yards in the team's spring game. Said Withers, "He played fine. He’s progressing in the offense. It’s going to take this summer for him to really know the nuances of what we want to do and get it done." The coach added that the 6-foot-1, 230-pounder has "got a long way to go." Playing behind Nick Fitzgerald in 2016, Williams completed 31-of-46 passes for 272 yards and two touchdowns across three games played. The Bobcats are trying to build themselves up after going just 2-10 this past season. They finished 0-8 in Sun Belt play.
May 11 - 6:12 PM

The San Marcos Daily Record's Ishmael Johnson reports that Mississippi State redshirt junior QB Damian Williams has transferred to Texas State.

Nick Fitzgerald has done a swell job of scaring off his potential competition via a brilliant second half of the 2016 season. Earlier this month, Bulldogs' QB Nick Tiano transferred to Chattanooga. Now, it is the 6-foot-1, 230-pound Williams who is opting for more open pastures. He will be eligible to play immediately in 2017 as a graduate transfer. In three games this season, Williams completed 31-of-46 passes for 272 yards, tossing two touchdowns (no interceptions) in that space. The former three-star recruit also managed 99 yards rushing.

Mississippi State redshirt junior QB Damian Williams took over for Nick Fitzgerald after three throws in the school's loss to South Alabama.

Williams completed 20 of 28 attempts for 143 yards and one touchdown. He was also the team's leading rusher 93 yards. The Bulldogs have a lot of work to do on offense after opening the game up 17-0, then fading down the stretch. Dak Prescott left huge shoes to fill.

Texas State hired Sam Houston State secondary coach Troy Douglas to serve as linebackers coach.

Tip of the cap to the San Marcos Daily Record's Joe Vozzelli for this one. Earlier in the week, associate head coach John Wiley stepped aside for family reasons, leaving a vacancy on staff. Douglas won't fill that associate head coach's role, but instead will work with the linebacking corp. He and HC Everett Withers have a previous connection, as both served on North Carolina's staff from 2009-2011.

Texas State dismissed redshirt sophomore WR Demun Mercer, redshirt junior WR Brice Gunter and freshman WR Justin Gamble.

No specific reason was given for the dismissals, but they were initially suspended in May. "It is always unfortunate to have young people not meet the standards you set for a team with a new culture," HC Everett Withers said. Mercer and Gamble were likely starters for 2016. The former was the team's fifth-leading receiver last season, catching 19 passes for 235 yards and a pair of touchdown. The Bobcat roster instantly becomes ultra-thin at receiver. They don't currently have a player on roster who has caught a pass at the Division I level.

Bleacher Report's Ryan McCrystal says Texas State senior QB Tyler Jones "has the tools of a draftable quarterback."

To show them, he'll need to win the starting job. In 2014, Jones' coming out party included 3,209 yards of total offense with 22/7 TD/INT ratio and six rushing touchdowns. Last year started off about the same, but he face-planted down the stretch and finished with a poor 14/10 TD/INT rate on 3,100 total yards and 10 rushing scores. The Bobcats have a new coaching staff and plucked up Missouri grad QB Eddie Printz -- a pro-style pocket passer -- on the transfer market. Jones and Printz have contrasting games. This competition will spread deep into the summer.
