Bellevue senior offensive lineman Henry Roberts announced his commitment to Washington on Wednesday evening via Twitter.

The 6-foot-6, 270-pounder is the highest-ranked offensive lineman in the state and listed at No. 25 nationally at the position by A four-star recruit, Roberts also held offers from a handful of Pac-12 schools, including Stanford, USC and UCLA, as well as Michigan and Wisconsin.

“It feels so awesome,” Roberts said. “I always knew I was going to be a Husky. With Coach (Chris Petersen) coming to UW, I knew it was the place for me.”

Roberts has thrived in the Wolverines’ unique wing-T offense and has blocked for top prospects Budda Baker, Myles Jack and Timmy Haehl, among others. He will join five teammates from last year’s Bellevue squad at Washington.

“Thank you to the Bellevue High School coaching staff, coach Butch (Goncharoff) and coach (Pat) Jones, because without them I don’t believe this would have happened,” Roberts said.

Roberts begins his season in California on Saturday against nationally-ranked Serra (Calif.), as Bellevue takes its 54-game winning streak to the prestigious Honor Bowl.
