Evergreen State WR on Beav radar

OREGON STATE IS one of two Pac-12 schools showing prospect Kahlil Dawson out of Graham-Kapowsin High the most early recruiting interest.

Kahlil Dawson's recruitment has been picking up steam in Pac-12 circles over the past month or so. And the Beavs, though they have not offered to this point, are one of two schools showing the most interest.

"Oregon State is recruiting me a lot – Washington State and Oregon State have been contacting me the most," said Dawson, who also has been hearing from ASU and Utah.

Dawson, who holds an offer from Wyoming, is as comfortable running a reverse or playing defensive back as he is catching the ball.

"The receivers coach at Oregon State is really cool – they like me as a slot receiver," he said.

"Wyoming likes my speed, explosiveness and hands. They're recruiting a lot of people in my area, they think my state is looked down on as far as recruiting goes but they know there's a lot of really good talent here."

Distance could be something of a factor in his decision, he doesn't want to be too far away from family, Dawson said. He took unofficial visits to WSU and Idaho this past weekend.

Dawson (5-9, 160, 4.49) hails from Graham, about 15 minutes south of Puyallup.

DAWSON WAS NAMED to the Northwest Nuggets In Waiting list by the Tacoma News Tribune for the 2013 class.

He had 24 catches for 425 yards and 5 TD's his junior year, plus another 6 carries for 68 yards. Over on D, he had 14 pass breakups and two interceptions mixed in with his 25 tackles. He also had 257 combined return yards, (4 punt returns, 44 yards; 7 kickoff returns, 213 yards.)
