The highly anticipated arrival of Patrick Ward, the offensive lineman out of Phoenix, looks like it's not going to happen.

Gary Andersen told The Tribune that the program hasn't spoken to Ward in two months. He was supposed to be finishing up course work at Glendale Community College, but the two sides have lost touch.

Ward was coveted because he was looked upon as an answer at the left tackle spot. He started 23 consecutive games at his junior college and Aggie coaches were raving about his talent and experience.

The Aggies also beat out Arizona State for his signing day signature. But, it looks like Ward won't be coming to Utah State. Andersen said the program is moving on without him.
