Help is on the way to Pullman. Washington State head coach Paul Wulff said Wednesday he signed two junior college offensive linemen to national letters of intent, and they'll be on campus in time for spring practice.

Wulff expects Wade Jacobsen and David Gonzalez to fill huge gaps in the Cougars' offensive line that suffered one problem after another during the past season.

"We felt all along Wade was one of the top offensive tackles on the West Coast," said Wulff in a news release. "The fact that he and David can come in January makes them both very valuable to Cougar Football. Wade instantly brings us great toughness and athletic ability, and as a team we got better today."

Wulff added that Gonzalez would also improve WSU's pass protection, something the piecemeal line struggled to do during the season.

"Having [Gonzalez] arrive in January will be critical, as it gives him additional time in the weight room and allows him to participate in our spring practices," said Wulff.

Jacobsen spent the past two seasons at Gavilan College in Gilroy, Calif. He earned all-conference and all-region honors.

Gonzales played for two years at Fresno City College and was named All-Valley Conference First Team Selection.
