California Quarterback Expects OSU Offer

The last 24 hours have been a good news-bad news proposition for Arroyo Grande standout athlete and football quarterback Brent Vanderveen. The 6-5, 210-pound Vanderveen is coached in baseball, in part, by former Oklahoma State and major League standout Robin Ventura, who is a volunteer coach for the Eagles.

We sent a text to Brent Vanderveen asking for an update on his team's status in the CIF baseball playoffs.

"We lost yesterday 1-0 (to Harvard-Westlake)," answered Vanderveen. "UCLA and Oklahoma State were there this morning. The Oklahoma State coach (offensive coordinator and quarterback coach Todd Monken) told my coach that they are going to offer, so he is supposed to call me."

Vanderveen has offers from Arkansas, Arkansas State, and the other OSU that wears orange and black, Oregon State.

Schools ranging from Northwestern, Fresno State, San Jose State, California, USC, Colorado, and others have come by Arroyo Grande this spring as the Eagles have the most Division I football prospects at any one time in school history.

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
