Peyton Pelluer, a 4-star (ESPN) and the No. 54 inside linebacker (247sports) has faxed in his letter of intent to Washington State on National Signing Day 2013. Pelluer, who played at Skyline (Sammamish, Wash.) High School chose WSU over Arizona State, Colorado and Wyoming.

Pelluer is known for his great tackling ability, as he racked up more than 300 tackles between his junior and sophomore years.

"He's lights out," said Skyline coach Mat Taylor. "Every game he's our leading tackler. He's just got tremendous instincts. He's got that knack for finding the ball."

Pelluer gave WSU a verbal commitment on June 16, 2012, after being recruited by special teams coach Eric Russell. Pelluer (6-2 and 225 pounds) was named first team All-State by both the Tacoma News Tribune, Seattle Times and Associated Press last season. Peyton will be a fourth generation Coug. His father, grandfather and great grandfather all played football at WSU.

His brother, Cooper, plays for Washington. Make of that what you will.
