Cougars gain in-state defensive tackle

Class of 2014 defensive lineman Marcus Griffin (Bellevue, Wash./Bellevue) has accepted an offer from Washington State, according to multiple sources.

Griffin (6-foot-3, 285 pounds) also holds offers from Colorado State, Idaho and Wyoming. Arizona State, Boise State, California, Oregon and Washington expressed interest.

Griffin is commitment No. 2 for the Cougars, who picked up quarterback Peyton Bender (Fort Lauderdale, Fla./Cardinal Gibbons) in March. Both Griffin and Bender will be included in ESPN's next rankings update.
