Dissly Commits to Washington

Will Dissly, a 6-foot-5, 260-pound defensive lineman from Bozeman, Montana, verbally committed to Washington Sunday after finishing up his official visit to Montlake. The Montana Gatorade Player of the Year was previously committed to Boise State, but was offered a scholarship by Chris Petersen and confirmed his commitment via Twitter.

Dissly sent out a tweet roughly around 4:45 Sunday afternoon that made it clear he no longer considered himself a Boise State Bronco, but a Washington Husky instead.

Officially committed to the University of Washington

Dissly is Washington's 16th known commitment for Petersen's first recruiting class.

Widely considered the top prospect in the state of Montanta, Dissly - also the Class AA's co-Defensive MVP last fall after notching 25 tackles for loss and 13.5 sacks - had two interceptions, a fumble recovery and scored two defensive touchdowns for Bozeman.

This is what Bozeman Head Coach Troy Purcell said about Dissly.

"I think Dissly can play on either side of the ball," added Bozeman Head Coach Troy Purcell, who also noted that Will is only 17 right now. "He's going to have a great career as a defensive end but he could have maybe even a better opportunity at tight end with his ability to catch the ball and make plays. Either way, if he gets recruited as a defensive end or as a tight end it's a great opportunity to excel and move forward. His upside is phenomenal."

We hope to have more comments from Dissly at some point on Monday.
