He went to Puyallup High School and played college ball at the University of Idaho. Now, after trying out with the Seahawks earlier this month, he’s got a shot with the NFL’s hottest team.

The Seahawks on Thursday announced signing Justin Veltung, who played wide receiver and returned kicks for the Vandals the past four years. He joins a crowded roster of receivers and will compete for a spot on the team during training camp this summer.

“He’s a smart guy,” receivers coach Kippy Brown told Seahawks.com after rookie camp May 10 through 12. “He knows what to do. He doesn’t make very many mistakes, and so far he’s been real reliable catching the football.”

Veltung is 5-foot-10, 183 pounds and ran the 40-yard dash in 4.46 seconds at Idaho’s Pro Day. He also has a heckuva vertical leap, measured at 41.5 inches at his Pro Day — and on display in the video embedded below.
