ROSTER GAINS: Cougs add serious bulk

COUGAR OFFENSIVE LINEMAN Jake Rodgers was still growing when he arrived at Washington State back in the summer of 2010. Coupled with a lot of hard work in the weight room ever since, the Spokane hoss has tacked on an eye-popping 44 pounds from last year. He's not the only Coug to show notable gains when comparing the 2011 roster to the year before…

Fellow offensive lineman and starting left guard John Fullington added 22 pounds from last year.

Next to him at left tackle, David Gonzales put on 11 pounds. Dan Spitz is now a member of the 300-pound club, having added 21 pounds to his frame.

By the way, did we mention Jake Rodgers has gone from 251 to 295? Just checking.

Among the other notables, they include Justin Clayton, who has added 10 pounds, and Tyrone Duckett who tacked on 11 pounds.

Aaron Dunn is up 11 pounds, too, while Rickey Galvin added nine pounds.

Jeff Tuel arrived at WSU two years ago listed at 207 pounds. Last year he looked noticeably different, and was listed at 214 pounds. Well, he's going to look considerably different this year, too. Tuel now checks in at 223 pounds, a difference of 9 pounds from last year.

Damante Horton is up 14 pounds and Anthony Laurenzi gained 11 on the scales. Casey Locker put on 13 pounds while Darren Markle is now all the way up to 240, a gain of 16 pounds. Skylar Stormo has added 10 pounds, as has Marquess Wilson.
