Andersen welcomes trio of new OSU enrollees
All three arrive with five years to play four seasons. Xavier Crawford, a 6-foot-0, 175-pounder played his senior season at Clayton Valley High in Concord, Calif as a senior in 2013. He helped the Eagles to a 9-1 record and a share of the Diablo League championship In addition to playing on the defensive side, Crawford also played running back. He was a two-sport athlete also capturing 2014 league titles in track and field in the 100 and 200-meter sprints. Crawford, who attended Pittsburg High School in California until his senior year, originally signed a financial aid agreement with Oregon State back in September. Ricky Liuchan (pronounced Loo-CHEN), who signed a National Letter of Intent with OSU last February, arrives in Corvallis following a standout career at Mission Hills High in Escondido, Calif. The 6-1, 215-pound linebacker helped lead Mission Hills to its first ever CIF Southern Section title in 2013 rushing for 112 yards and recording a 35-yard interception return in the title game. He also helped the Grizzlies to the Division I Avocado Conference title in 2012. He was named as an All-San Diego Section First Team selection as a junior and senior and was a PrepStar All-West Region selection as a senior. In 2012, he was one of only two juniors to earn CIF Southern Section First Team honors on defense. Zach Standish, a 5-10, 170-pound kicker from Gresham’s Sam Barlow High, joins a specialists group seeking to replace several long-time OSU starters. Standish was rated as the country’s No. 28 kicker by Chris Sailer Kicking following his 2013 senior year. He converted a long of 50 yards.
