The 6’7” 280-pound offensive lineman has a Hudl film that ends with most of his opponents on their back.

Washington State offensive line coach Mason Miller tweeted out that there was big news coming on Monday evening at 7:05 and seven minutes later the three-star offensive tackle tweeted his commitment.

Leading the Walla Walla offensive line, he also gets some time on the other side of the ball at defensive end and uses his size and speed to his advantage causing havoc on opposing quarterbacks. He also earned honorable mention as a junior in the Mid-Columbia Conference for offensive line.

Utschinski picked the Cougars over offers from Eastern Washington, Oregon State, Idaho, and Montana State.

Washington State now has six guys committed to them for 2019. Linebacker Peni Naulu out of Hawaii committed last Wednesday. Utschinski is the first offensive lineman for the class.
