COMMIT: Beavs go big at RB

LAWRENCE MATTISON ISN'T the type of small running back who can get lost in traffic. Instead, he checks in at 6-1, 225 pounds and tells he pledged Oregon State.

Still, it's worth noting that Lawrence Mattison told's Antonio Castillo on Friday night he's 99.9 percent committed to Oregon State, but not cancelling a planned official visit to UTSA.

The pull of home can be big for a recruit, so it will bear watching this month for the Spring Branch, Texas product.

Mattison was named District 25-5A Offensive MVP this season. Senior stats were unavailable at press time but as a junior, Mattison rushed for 1,943 yards and 27 touchdowns, while catching three passes for 79 yards and a TD.
