Tucker Rovig (6-5, 205) became the Valley’s first commit when he verballed to Montana State in June. After leading Mountain View to a 22-3 record in two years and its first state title this fall, the signal caller said he’s ready to sign on the dotted line.
“The thing I’m most excited for is I knew the feeling of how it was to commit back in June, and I can’t wait for the feeling it’s going to give me when I sign the National Letter of Intent on the first,” Rovig said.
The first-team All-Idaho quarterback completed 61 percent of his passes this fall for 2,387 yards with 30 TDs and six interceptions. He also proved to be a threat in the running game, rushing for 360 yards and 10 TDs.
Montana State enters the offseason with Chris Murray, the reigning Big Sky Freshman of the Year, entrenched as the starter. But Rovig brings another skill set to Bozeman as a pass-first quarterback as opposed to the scrambling Murray.
Never miss a local story.
“The coaches get to play their cards and see what they like more,” Rovig said.
