The Beavs have commitments from WRs Victor Bolden, Jordan Villamin and Jermel Walker but another receiver, Walter Jones (6-0, 177) out of Redlands, Calif. also holds an Oregon State offer and is friends with two of those listed above.
"I like Oregon State too, I like the coaches, I feel like I could fit in, I like the receiving corps…and two of my friends are going there (Bolden and Villamin).
Jones is classified by Scout.com as a 3-star cornerback but the Beavs are recruiting him as a receiver, he said.
Jones also holds offers from Washington State, Utah and Nevada. Utah likes him as an ATH, WSU as a receiver and Nevada as a corner.
"I like all the schools…it's going to be a really tough decision," said Jones.
JONES HAS SHOWN plenty of speed on the gridiron and track at Redlands High. He has posted times of 10.72 in the 100-meters and 21.56 in the 200, according to dyestat.com. His best event may be the long jump where he's posted a personal best of 24 feet, 5-1/2 inches.
He was in Pullman this week to take in a practice.
"It went great, I like Washington State. I went on a little unofficial for the day. I really love the new offense they have," said Jones.
Jones has taken an unofficial visit to Oregon State, along with Cal, ASU and UCLA. He said he also hopes more Pac-12 schools will offer after seeing some of his early games. His decision timetable?
"Probably sometime in the season, maybe halfway.. but I might see some more recruitment from other schools, midway through
more could come see some of my football games so it could be later," said Jones.
