Billings Skyview football standout Connor Lebsock has made a verbal commitment to play for the University of Montana.
He'll be the fifth Lebsock to suit up for the Grizzlies: Lebsock's father Ron played center at UM from 1974-77, followed by brothers Matt (2003-06), Nick (2007) and Shawn (2006-09).
Lebsock, a 6-foot-2, 198-pounder, will likely play safety.
Lebsock was a three-year starter for Skyview at both quarterback and safety, after playing one game at QB and five games at corner for the Falcons as a freshman in 2007. He was named first-team all-state in 2009 at safety.
Lebsock was also second-team at quarterback and punter that season, for a team that finished 8-4 and lost in the AA semifinals. In 2008 Lebsock, who's handled place-kicking and kickoff duties as well, was first-team all-state at punter after averaging a state-best 39.7 yards.
Lebsock is unofficially the third verbal commitment for the Grizzlies, who went 7-4 this past season.
John Schmaing, a two-way starting lineman at Billings Senior, announced he'd committed to the Griz in mid-August. Quarterback-receiver Matt Hermson of Sioux Falls, S.D., committed to the Griz last July.
