BOZEMAN — Montana State is getting a big commitment in the NCAA’s inaugural early signing period.

As first reported from Skyline Sports, former Indiana running back Tyler Natee has said he will sign with Montana State this week. Natee is a bruiser, measuring 6-foot-1 and weighing in at 270 pounds.

The Bobcats are losing senior running back Nick LaSane, who rushed for 592 yards and broke off big runs on several occasions down the final stretch of the season. LaSane missed the first four games of the season due to a suspension.

Natee went to Euless Trinity High School (Texas), the same school that former Bobcat quarterback and current staffer DeNarius McGhee attended.
