Del Rio Clarifies Situation; Will Visit OSU

It's no surprise that while many recruiting situations can get complicated there will be no problem with that in the recruiting of Elite 11 Valor Christian High School quarterback Luke Del Rio, the talented son of Denver Broncos defensive coordinator and former NFL linebacker Jack Del Rio.

We waited last week until after Valor Christian cruised in its game 63-7 last Friday and spoke with Del Rio just before his dad's defense played so well in a Sunday night win over the New Orleans Saints. "I have to look out for what is best for my situation," said Del Rio in confirming his visit to Oregon State and saying that Beavers head coach Mike Riley and his staff showed him a good time in Corvalis on his visit.

"I'm still committed to Oklahoma State, and I'm going to keep quiet on any other schools that I am considering. I would say that I'm a soft commitment but it is still my choice right now.

"I'm going to take my official to Oklahoma State in two weeks when they play Texas Tech, and I will know after I take that visit what I am going to do," added Del Rio. "I'm looking forward to that, and I am still a December grad. I will be at my college destination in January."

Del Rio's numbers are great but maybe a little light.

"We are playing really well, but I haven't played a second half in seven weeks, but that will change coming up," said Del Rio of his team's domination over the opposition. "We open up with Legacy in the playoffs."

Del Rio also said his broken left arm, non-throwing arm, is completely healed. He broke it the second week of the season and it is fine as he wears a protective sleeve on it.

Del Rio sounds like a guy that has his situations under control, both on and off the field.
