A closer look at OSU QB recruiting

IF RECENT RECRUITING CLASSES are any indication, Oregon State will be landing their quarterback very soon. Over the past five years, the Beavs have received their QB verbal commitments in a very narrow window -- from June 17 - July 3. One quarterback name in the 2013 class to keep an eye on for Beaver fans, reports Scout.com's Annabel Stephan, is Nate Romine out of Upland, Calif.

Nate Romine recently attended the Get It Done Sports Training Camp that was instructed by the Oregon State coaches. And he left with positive feedback.

"They said they liked me and just wanted to see me in camp, so I went to camp. Now I'm just waiting for a couple of the guys they offered before to make a decision, and we'll just go from there," he said.

There are two known uncommitted QBs with Oregon State offers -- Johnny Stanton (6-2, 220) and Devante Kincade (6-1, 185).

Stanton says he has mostly narrowed his list to four -- Oregon State, Oregon, Nebraska and Utah. Of the four, Oregon has not yet offered.

The Santa Margarita, Calif. product is also not closing the door on two other schools that have yet to offer -- USC and Wisconsin.

A three-star prospect rated No. 42 in the nation, Stanton threw for 2,439 yards and 13 touchdowns with eight interceptions -- while rushing for 1,528 yards and 25 touchdowns in 2011. He led Santa Margarita Catholic to the CIF-SS Pac-5 title and the CIF State D-I title.

Stanton has visited Nebraska twice in recent weeks, leading to speculation the Cornhuskers hold the upper hand.

Kincade, out of Dallas, has set his announcement date -- July 17. He's narrowed his list to Oregon State, Ole Miss, Kansas State, Mississippi State, Notre Dame, Nebraska and Texas Tech.

Kincade is rated four stars and the No. 25 quarterback prospect by Scout.com.

He appears to be favoring schools closer to home based on his upcoming unofficial visit schedule, and OSU looks to have work to do if they're to be his final choice.
