Helena Capital guard Caleb Kidder has made a verbal commitment to play football at the University of Montana.

The Independent Record said Kidder, who will be a senior this fall, chose Montana over other schools including Montana State, Boise State, Stanford, Idaho and Washington State.

Kidder earned first team all-state honors as an offensive guard as a junior after earning second-team honors as a sophomore.

Capital coach Pat Murphy says Kidder was strongly recruited by several schools.

The Independent also quoted Murphy as saying that Capital defensive back Gunnar Brekke, who will be a junior this fall, has also received an offer from the Griz.
