The next time Washington State offensive lineman Tyson Pencer plays football he'll be playing in the Canadian Junior Football League.

The 6-foot-7, 330 pound offensive lineman decided to leave WSU for personal reasons and will return to his home in Canada. He committed to play for the Okanagan Sun of the CJFL and could start as early as this weekend in the team's first game of the season.

The Cougars will now have to find a replacement for Pencer, a redshirt junior who played in nine games over the past two seasons.

Washington State's first game is September 3 at home against Idaho State.
