Nomani had been considering BYU, Oregon and some other schools, but when it came down to it, Oregon State just blew him away. "I was just blown away by the coaches and especially Coach Cavanaugh who coaches the offensive line," said Nomani. "He's exactly the type of coach I want to play for."
Nomani has definite mission plans, but states that Oregon State is more than willing to work with those plans and will have a scholarship for him when he gets back. In the meantime, Nomani plans on canceling all other trips as he focuses on finishing his senior season before signing on to play for the Beavers this February.
