Vanderveen Picks Up Another Offer

Quarterback Brent Vanderveen from Arroyo Granda in California picked up a scholarship offer this week from a school that wears orange and black and is OSU. But it was Oregon State and not Oklahoma State that came through with a scholarship offer for Vanderveen. The Beavers had a coach in California this week to watch Vanderveen throw the football.

In fact, several schools, possibly even Oklahoma State, traveled to see the 6-5, 210-pound quarterback sling the football around.

At the same time Vanderveen was preparing for a baseball playoff game. One of the Eagles coaches is volunteer coach and former Oklahoma State and Major League standout Robin Ventura.

Arroyo Grande opened the CIF playoffs on Thursday, and Vanderveen broke a tie in the bottom of the sixth inning with an RBI single to put the Eagles up 4-3 and they went on to an 8-3 win to move into the second round next week.

The Oregon State offer in football makes three offers now for Vanderveen, as Arkansas and Arkansas State each came out to California to check him out.

Vanderveen is a three-sport athlete that also plays basketball, but it is football that is his first love.

At quarterback last season, he completed 103 of 198 passes for 1,402 yards with 11 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. He also ran for 581 yards and 6 touchdowns. He is also very athletic which you can see by viewing his highlights on
