Colstrip’s Trey Yates announced his commitment to Montana State on Saturday via Twitter.

Yates, a member of the Class of 2020, played both offensive and defensive line for the Colts but is designated as a defensive lineman, according to the tweet.

“Excited to announce that I will continue my academic and athletic career at Montana State University! The legacy continues... #GoCats,” Yates tweeted.

Yates won a Class B/C wrestling state championship this past year at 285 pounds.

His older brother, Tucker, was a captain for the Bobcats and earned second-team all-Big Sky honors as a senior defensive tackle in 2018.
