Great Falls High basketball player Brendan Howard verbally committed to play at Eastern Washington University next season.
The two-time All-State honoree averaged 25.1 points per game last season to go along with 10.4 rebounds per contest.
Brendan and his dad, Bob, who coaches the Bison say the commitment means a lot to their family.
"It's a pretty great feeling," Brendan said. "[To play Division-1 basketball] has kind of been my goal since I was little and I started playing basketball so it's kind of nice to see it finally pay off."
Brendan's dad attributes his son's ascension to the top to games Brendan played with his brothers when he was younger.
"Both my wife and I are happy he's going to go somewhere and play," Bob Howard said. "He's worked his tail off and he's getting everything he deserves."
Brendan said he plans to sign his letter of intent when the Bison hold their National Signing Day.
And from the basketball court to the wrestling mat, Havre High School's Parker Filius verbally committed Wednesday to wrestle at Purdue, according to the Havre Daily News.
The future Boilermaker has won three state championships in a row in three different weight classes. Filius helped Havre win three of the school's last four championships as a team.
