Washington State University has released the new renderings for the Martin Stadium renovations. The renovations are expected to be approved by the Board of Regents within the next month.

The renovation calls for completion in two phases. The first phase will include a new press box and premium seating with construction expected to begin on November 21, 2011. The first phase is expected to be completed by August 2012, in time for the Cougars' first home game.

The second phase includes a football facility that will close off the west endzone. This is scheduled to be completed in time for the 2012 Apple Cup.

Que to the Zzu

The Washington State Cougars Men's Basketball team today received their fourth commitment for the 2012 recruiting class.

Demarquise Johnson, a 6-5 guard, committed to the Cougars after finishing his official visits and taking a week to decide his college choice. Que based his decision on his relationship with the Cougar coaches.

"Ken Bone is a really good coach," Que said. "Curtis Allen has been like an older brother to me. Coach (Ben) Johnson is a good coach and a good guy, I talk to him a lot."

Que picked Washington State over finalists UW, Gonzaga, and Unlv. He also held offers from a slew of other schools including Virginia, Oregon State, Colorado, Arizona State, and Missouri.

Johnson joins prep teammate Richard Peters, Spokane's Brett Boese, and Oakland's Richard Longrus in the Cougars' 2012 class.

Richard Longrus Commits to WSU

The Washington State Cougars received their third known commitment for the class of 2012 last night. Forward Richard Longrus, a 6-6 forward from Oakland, called and pledged Crimson.

Longrus has drawn comparisons to former WSU star, Kyle Weaver. Richard has the ability to shoot from the outside and is crafty inside the perimeter.

The Cougars are also expecting to hear from DeMarquise Johnson, the top-rated shooting guard on the west coast, on Saturday. Johnson has narrowed his choices to WSU, UW, Gonzaga, and UNLV.
