A Closer Look At WSU's 2012 Fall Camp Roster

You know football season is getting close when the new roster is coming out. Brian took a look at the recently released depth chart a few days ago, but WSU released their full 104 player roster Friday.

The updated heights and weights from spring are evidence of the hardwork the players put in during offseason conditioning, but there is more to the fall roster than just weights. After the jump, we take a closer look at the breakdown of the 2012 Cougs.

I think the first thing that stands out is holy hell Niu Sale is gigantic. The incoming junior guard is listed at 6-3 and a whopping 346 pounds. Sale is the heaviest player on the roster, more than twice the size of Henry Eaddy who checks in at 158 pounds.

Of the 82 players currently on the fall roster who were also on the spring roster, 39 gained at least a pound, eight stayed the same and 35 lost at least a pound. Xavier Cooper was the biggest gainer, both in terms of overall pounds and percentage, bulking up 46 pounds scratch that, Cooper actually gained 20 pounds, still good though! Zach Koepp was the biggest loser, dropping 27 pounds. It's important to note that the weights on the spring roster were the same as the 2011 fall roster, so no, Cooper didn't gain 46 points in three months.

Here is the full list of weight gains and losses.

Here is a closer look at the makeup of the roster:

By graduating class

  • Redshirt seniors: 10
  • Seniors: 7
  • Redshirt juniors: 12
  • Juniors: 11
  • Redshirt sophomores: 17
  • Sophomores: 8
  • Redshirt freshman: 17
  • Freshman: 22

It's still a relatively young roster with 46 percent either in their first or second college seasons. Having only 17 seniors could make the 2013 recruiting class on the smaller side.

By home state
  • California - 44
  • Washington - 33
  • Florida - 5
  • Texas - 4
  • Hawai'i - 3
  • Oregon - 3
  • American Samoa - 2
  • Idaho - 2
  • Louisiana - 1
  • Colorado - 1
  • Arizona - 1
  • Germany - 1
  • South Carolina - 1
  • North Carolina - 1
  • Wisconsin - 1
  • Iowa - 1
No surprise to see the vast majority of players from Washington and California. Expect the number of players from Texas to grow over the next few years as Leach and company have had some success recruiting in Texas.
