Oregon State offers continue to climb

CLICKING ON THE offers database for Oregon State shows one page isn't enough to list them all. Indeed, the Beavers' offers to 2013 class juniors has kept on climbing at a fast clip in recent weeks. With a Beavers' junior day event coming up on April 14, more are likely to be on the way.

The May Evaluation, where schools can go on the road recruiting four of six weeks between April 15 and March 31, is when the extended offers really begin to flow.

But OSU hasn't been being shy about offering in February, not on certain prospects.

Among the more recent OSU offers, Fountain Valley's J.D. Hinnant (6-5, 260). Mike Riley offered him earlier this month, an athletic o-tackle prospect with great feet and a frame that has lots of room to pack on muscle and bulk. Scout.com is certainly high on him, saying he's beginning to establish himself as one of the elite line prospects in the state after having flown under the radar.

Arizona has a strong class this recruiting cycle. Corner Cole Luke out of Chandler's Hamilton High holds an Oregon State offer. He is in high demand, with double digit offers. As is linebacker Chans Cox out of Lakeside. Among his 12 known offers is one from the Beavs. Wide receiver Devon Allen from Phoenix's Brophy High also holds a full ride from the Beavs, one of 15 known offers in his back pocket.

Tempe DB Marcos de Niza might be the most sought of them all from Arizona with a Beaver offer. He has 21 offers, including one from Oregon State.

California, though, is always the primary recruiting pipeline to Oregon State. And there has been no shortage of recent offerings made by the Beavers to Golden State prospects.

Sherman Oaks running back Khalfani Muhammad has been offered by the Beavs. He also holds offers from UCLA, Utah, Arkansas, Cincinnati and Duke.

Oregon State was one of the first to offer Oakley's ATH Darrell Daniels (6-3, 210) out of Freedom, Calif. His best position in college might be wide receiver.

Elijah Qualls has a huge offer list and the Beavers jumped on him early. Where he plays will be intriguing, not many 6-2, 260-pounders have his agility and athleticism. Some schools have told him they're offering him at running back or fullback, though he's said it seems d-tackle might be in the cards at the college level.

Stockton running back, Justin Davis, rushed for 2,613 yards and 39 touchdowns as a junior. Oregon State offered early but 12 others have also offered as of last check.

OSU pulled five out of the state of Washington this past class. Danny Mattingly, a linebacker/tight end out of Spokane who has suddenly been picking up offers left and right is in Oregon State's sights for their 2013 class.

Also from the Evergreen State and with a Beaver offer is Bellevue's Myles Jack. The 6-2, 215-pounder played only seven games as a junior but it hasn't hurt his recruiting stock.

Among those who could land an OSU offer in the coming weeks, Marin Catholic quarterback Jared Goff. He passed for 3,179 yards and 44 touchdowns against only 4 interceptions as a junior. Goff says he's been talking "a lot" to Oregon State recently.
