A snapshot look at OSU recruiting in Texas

DAMION HOBBS, a 6-3, 205-pound ATH out of Cedar Hill, Texas, about 20 minutes outside of Dallas, picked up an offer from Oregon State this past week. His is one of several known offers the Beavers have extended to Texas prospects.

Erin Hartigan, Scout.com's Midlands Recruiting Reporter, reported the offer to Damion Hobbs last week.

"He is jacked about this one," said a member of the Cedar Hill coaching staff, who added that Hobbs will "most likely" hit camp this summer.

Hobbs passed for almost 1,000 yards and rushed for 875 yards with a team-high 19 touchdowns as a junior. His best position at the next level, however, might be at wide receiver, and it's believed OSU has offered him at wideout.

He also holds offers from Iowa State and Arkansas State.

It wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility for OSU to give him a look under center if he comes up to the Beavs' camp. Hobbs has been reported to have good arm strength, 4.6 forty speed, smarts and instinct.

Other Texas prospects who hold early offers from Oregon State include:

DT Justin Manning: Rated the No. 4 DT in the nation by Scout.com, Manning will have his choice of schools.

S Kameron Miles: In early February, he had a handful of offers. A month later, he's now nearing 20 full rides.

RB Dontre Wilson: A speedy running back with loads of offers to his credit. He's also a potential threat in the receiving game.

WR Eldridge Massington: He has above average speed and uses his size to effectively beat corners on a variety of routes.
