Oregon State has been recruiting Sherman Oaks (California) Notre Dame wide receiver Tyler Asemotafor several months and on Sunday he decided that the time was right to pull the trigger and commit to the Beavers. Receiver coach Brent Brennan used the Friday after the Beavers opener at Minnesota to catch Asemota in action, and the two have been in contact often.
"After Coach Brennan came to my game and we talked oh the phone, I just truly felt that he was the right coach for me and I believe that I can do great things at Oregon State," Asemota told BeaverBlitz. "I have a lot of trust in all of the coaches and we all have the same goal, we're looking for success."
Asemota is a big bodied receiver, standing 6-foot-5, 205 pounds. He is physical and not afraid to go up in traffic to haul in the catch.
He is excited about his commitment, although he hadn't had a chance to speak to Coach Andersen right away.
"I still haven't had the chance to speak with him," he said. "He is in a meeting so I'll speck with him and some of the other coaches afterward."
He also plans to set up his official visit soon as well, but feels that his commitment is 100% with Oregon State.
"I'm 100% solid with OSU," he said. "My parents would still like me to visit other schools though just to see the surroundings and athletic life on those campuses."
Asemota chose Oregon State over offers from BYU, Fresno State, and Hawaii and interest among several other programs.
