CSU are confident they'll be competitive in the Farrer League next season despite the top sides all strengthening their squads for 2016.
The Busphigs confirmed the acquisition of two talls to boost their ruck and defence stocks with the promise of more signings to come.
Alex Reilly is originally from Ovens and Murray League club, Wangaratta Magpies, where he played thirds and seconds.
He spent last season at Wagga Tigers but will switch to CSU next year where he is entering the second year of his studies.
At 190cm and 92kg, Reilly is likely to play in the backline with a pinch-hitting role in the ruck.
The Bushpigs hope Victorian recruit Dominic Smith might be their main ruckman.
The 192cm and 105kg Smith has been plying his trade at Newbridge, near Bendigo, in the Loddon Valley League where he mostly played first grade last season and a mixture of reserves and firsts in previous seasons.
"He played in back-to-back reserve grade flags and pretty much carried them in one of those wins with his ruck work," CSU president Tristan Robinson said.
"I don't know the league but I think all Victorian footy's a reasonable standard.
"He comes with very high regard from their club president as being a good person and a great clubman, which is important."
Smith is moving to Wagga after meeting a Bushpigs player during harvest and deciding he needed a change.
Robinson said the two bigger bodies will be handy and give new coach Daniel Athanitis some options.
The Busphigs are also in discussions with other players locally and interstate who will be studying at university and are confident they'll have more announcements in the new year.
They were in talks with the former Rand-Walbundrie trio, Justin Mesman, Mark Kimball and Tim Gray, who ended up signing with the Northern Jets.
