Oregon State picks up wing

Oregon State scored their third commitment of the 2012 class. This time they dipped into California for a 6-foot-5 wing from Berkeley (Calif.) High.

It didn't take Langston Morris-Walker long after his official visit to Oregon State to make up his end.

In fact, Morris-Walker, a talented wing that spent the spring and summer playing with the Oakland Soldiers, fell quickly for Craig Robinson's program.

"I fell in love with it instantly," Morris-Walker told Scout.com.

"Just the coaching staff and coach Robinson is a high character guy that I want to be around for the next couple of years," he added.

Morris-Walker said he also considered Colorado, UC-Santa Barbara and UTEP.

"Just the people and the town at Corvallis," he responded when asked about what he liked about his visit. "I felt real welcome and comfortable there."

He said Oregon State is planning to play him on the wing, just as he did on the AAU circuit.

"I see myself at the two guard," he said. "They recruited me at the two. I just want to learn from the previous two guards."

Oregon State now has a trio of commitments in the 2012 class. Morris-Walker joins Jarmal Reid and Maika Ostling to make up their current recruiting class.
