The Huskies are expected to sign four players from the state of Washington. One of those Washingtonians has made it official. M.J. Ale is formally a Husky.

The senior from Fife committed to the Huskies in August. Ale chose the Huskies over Oregon, Utah, UCLA, among other programs. The three-star Offensive tackle will be one of the biggest bodies in the offensive line room from day one, as he checks in at 6’6 and 330 pounds.

Ale is also a multi-sport athlete, and an impressive one at that. According to the News Tribune’s Todd Milles, Ale was a three-time Australian Golden Gloves Heavy-weight champion. In addition to boxing, Ale was also a rugby player, before giving up both sports to focus on football.

The Huskies are getting a tough nosed lineman who shows an impressive ability to get out of his stance quickly for his size. At 6-6 330 pounds, Huskies fans would be forgiven if they assumed that the Fife product would be projected to play tackle at the next level. However, the Huskies will look to slot Ale at guard, according to a report from Dawgman’s Scott Ecklund.
