Prosser's Cody Bruns Commits to Huskies

Posted: Updated:

PROSSER, Wash - A late night decision for Prosser Mustang Wide Receiver Cody Bruns has him heading to the University of Washington next year.  Last night Bruns made the decision to verbally commit to the Huskies instead of the Washington State Cougars.

"The program is on the rise," said Bruns. "Coach Willingham is a great guy. All the coaches, I seem to get along with them. With Jake Locker, it seems like a great future there. I'm very thankful to what got me here. I'm looking forward to it."

The Mustang's Senior has over 1,000 yards receiving and 19 touchdowns this season.  Bruns is a 4-star prospect (on a 5 star rating scale) and is the 34th ranked wide receiver prospect in the country.  He also plays on defense and has picked off two passes this season as well. It wasn't too long ago when he was so bad, he was crying on the field!

"I remember him crying at grid kids, fourth, fifth grade," said Moore. "He a hard time taking snaps from the center. He was devastated. He was in tears. He has always been very determined."

"It just meant a lot to me. Football and Prosser means a lot to a lot of kids. It was just one of those things."

Cody will now try to help his team win a state championship that they narrowly missed out on last year.  The Mustangs will play Burlington-Edison Saturday morning at 10 at the Tacoma Dome.

"I always wanted to go to a state championship. My sophomore year I was hurt and didn't get to play. So this a little chance to play and get a little redemption."
