BREAKING: 6-foot-6 Cali OL goes crimson

WASHINGTON STATE HAS picked up their second verbal commitment of the day, as Cedric Bigge-Duren, a 6-6, 295-pound offensive lineman out of Oceanside, Calif. just went crimson. He tells the pass-first offense of Mike Leach fits him like a glove.

"I committed today to Washington State... just about 15 minutes ago," said Bigge-Duren out of Oceanside High.

Bigge-Duren held offers from Washington State, San Jose State, Nevada and Montana State.

"I really like the pass-style offense of Washington State," said Bigge-Duren. "And then the Pac-12, can't really beat it. When I was looking at the school, I couldn't find anything that was a negative."

Bigge-Duren said he dropped about 20 pounds after his junior season and now fluctuates between 285-295.

"I'm in better shape, just being a whole lot lighter (on my feet)," said Bigge-Duren.

It certainly caught the Cougars' eye.

WSU o-line coach Clay McGuire ran the recruiting point on Bigge-Duren.

"He seems like a really nice guy, really honest, an all-around good guy...They want me as an offensive tackle," said Bigge-Duren.

Bigge-Duren said he's also looking forward to the college-town atmosphere of Washington State.

"There aren't many places like that anymore," he said.

Cougar offensive lineman Eduardo Middleton also came to Washington State from Oceanside.
