Top 2015 OL Recruit Henry Roberts Picks Washington

Chris Petersen lands a key in-state recruit in OL Henry Roberts - Marco Garcia-USA TODAY Sports

Standout OL prospect Henry Roberts from Bellevue H.S. has made a college commitment tonight via his Twitter account, and it's good news for Washington Husky fans.

Henry Roberts - a consensus 4-star OL recruit out of Bellevue H.S. - has announced his college destination tonight via his Twitter account:

Twitter reaction came immediately, including a little "blast from the past":

Roberts is the latest in a recent line of outstanding OL prospects from the state's top program, following such players as Steve Schilling, David DeCastro and Jake Eldrenkamp.  For a while it appeared that he would follow in DeCastro's footsteps and select Stanford, but as he considered his choices further, the appeal of staying local and attending Washington gained priority.

He becomes the 11th known verbal commitment for Washington's 2015 recruiting class and the 5th rated at a 4-star level by at least one recruiting service.  With commitments also from Trey Adams, Jared Hilbers and greyshirt Devin Burleson, the staff is likely done with OL recruiting for this class, though they are still pursuing James Empey with the thought he'd become a 2017 recruit after serving a 2-year LDS mission.
