Jeremiah Laufasa - James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

Washington State running back Jeremiah Laufasa is reportedly transferring to UTEP, joining brother Darrin.

According to the Spokesman-Review and Cougfan.com, Washington State running back Jeremiah Laufasa is set to transfer to UTEP.

Jeremiah is the older brother of current Miner fullback Darrin Laufasa who had a break out year last season as a freshman before sustaining a season ending injury.

This will be the third stop for Jeremiah, who started his college career at Central Washington before walking on at Washington State.

He is listed as a red-shirt sophomore at 5'10 208 lbs, and per the report, he will also petition the NCAA so he can play next fall for the Miners without losing a year.  According to the Spokesman-Review he will be on scholarship for the Miners.

The elder Laufasa had a solid prep career, he ran for 3,682 yards, leading to 39 touchdowns as a four year letter winner in high school.

Jeremiah appeared in only nine games at Central Washington, he carried the rock 17 times, good for 90 yards.

After red-shirting in 2012.and earning Scout Team Player of the Year from Mike Leach, Last season he ran for 157 yards, on 34 carries, to go along with 7 TD's, presumably in short yardage situations.  He also had nine catches on 38 yards receiving for the Cougars who finished 6-7 overall with a bowl appearance.

Interesting grab for the Miners, as the backfield depth keeps getting deeper, and deeper for Sean Kugler.
