Recruiting: Bellevue QB commits to WSU

Washington State picked up its 15th commitment of the 2016 recruiting class Thursday afternoon.

Justus Rogers, the quarterback at perennial 3A state champion Bellevue High, announced his decision to play for Washington State on Twitter.

The recruit-tracking service lists Rogers as an "athlete," meaning the 6-foot-2, 215-pound high school senior is probably more likely to end up at safety, linebacker or wide receiver than quarterback.

Rogers is the fourth instate player to commit to WSU in 2016. The Cougars did not sign any players from the state of Washington in the last recruiting cycle.

Here are some video highlights:
