Bellevue athlete Reuben Mwehla commits to Idaho

The list of college football commitments at Bellevue High School is piling up.

When Reuben Mwehla announced Thursday he will play at Idaho, he became the third Wolverines standout to give a verbal commitment to a Division I university, joining linebackers Myles Jack (UCLA) and Sean Constantine (Washington).

“It’s really family based,” Mwehla said. “Their staff is really friendly and they want what’s best for me. They can make me better as a person and as a player.”

Mwehla (5-9, 192 pounds) said the Vandals recruited him as an athlete and he will play cornerback or receiver.

“It feels great,” he said. “To get my college paid for is a big thing and to get to play football on top of that, I thank God for that.”

While Mwehla was excited to talk about the future, he made sure he thanked Bellevue coach Butch Goncharoff.

“Butch does a lot for us,” Mwehla. “It’s ridiculous what he does.”
