Rocky Shields is on his way to the Pac-12, committing to Washington State after a recent official visit to Pullman.

A 6-foot-3 and 260-pound defensive lineman out of Littleton, Colorado, Shields first received his offer from Washington State in December. He holds other offers from Air Force, Wyoming, New Mexico State, Nevada and Utah State but the late push from the Cougars landed Shields’ pledge.

“…To the many coaches who gave me an opportunity to play for them, I humbly thank you,” wrote Shields. “To Washington State, players and staff, I am forever thankful for your hospitality and enthusiasm. I cannot wait to play and make an impact in Pullman. Thank you Coach Dickert and Coach Kal for always believing in me. I got it right this time.”

Though unrated by the composite rankings, 247 Sports lists Shields as a 3-star prospect and the No. 18 player out of Colorado for the class of 2023. He joins a Washington State recruiting class ranked 68th nationally for the cycle.
