Hunter Jarmon (6-1, 185) out of Waco's Midway High has the Beavs high up on his list.
"I like Oregon State a lot, they have a great football program – they just got that big win over Wisconsin. They've also had a baseball dynasty over there for the last 5-6 years or longer," he said.
Jarmon, also a standout prep outfielder on the baseball diamond, is exploring the possibility of playing two sports at the next level.
IN ADDITION TO Oregon State, Jarmon holds offers from Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, Minnesota, Missouri, New Mexico, Washington State, SMU and Tulsa. Who is standing out most right now?
"The five schools I'm visiting , along with… Iowa State," said Jarmon.
Jarmon has official visits set up to: Kansas (9-14); Minnesota (9-21) and Oregon State (11-2) during the season, with trips to Washington State and Texas Tech slated for early December (dates tentative.) All have offered except for Texas Tech. Jarmon said TT has told him they plan to come down this season and that their policy is to see a prospect live before deciding whether to offer.
His official visits, Jarmon said, will be the biggest part of his decision, to see who "shines" most.
JARMON SAID OSU and other schools have told him they are recruiting him hard because of both his football skills and his character.
"They liked how I ran my routes, they said I run great routes… they like that I'm very aggressive when ball is in air, and they said I sound like I'm a very well put together young man," said Jarmon.
Distance, he said, won't be the deciding factor.
"If I do plan to go away…I have really supportive parents… it's a factor but not a huge factor," said Jarmon.
JARMON IS also high on another school in the Pac-12 North.
"I was just honored to get the call from (WSU). I fell in love with Mike Leach when he was at Texas Tech… Michael Crabtree is my favorite receiver, I love his offense and I just feel he's a genius," said Jarmon.
As a junior, Jarmon hauled in 44 receptions for 811 yards with 11 TDs.
