McDonough (Georgia) Henry County defensive tackle Jahmal Wynter made his official visit to Corvallis this weekend and the visit was eye opening to the 6-foot-3, 273 athlete. He caught up with BeaverBlitz from the airport to give us his thoughts.
"My visit was awesome," Wynter said. "I enjoyed my time in Corvallis and it was really exciting. OSU is a great school and the coaching staff is great. It's not just about football they care about the whole athlete."
Spending time with Coach Andersen was important to Wynter and he answered a lot of questions he had. He also had a good time with host Shemar Smith.
"Coach Andersen is the type of coach that gets to know his players and he spends time helping his players," Wynter said. "He told me how the program is rebuilding and how the team is close knit. His main viewpoint was not football his main viewpoint was about me getting my degree and graduating on time because football will take care of itself."
Wynter did not commit to the Beavers on his trip and plans to set up a few more visits when he arrives home to Georgia Southern and Eastern Kentucky and some unofficial visits as well.
In closing Wynter was also impressed by the crowd and the fan support in Corvallis and he can see himself being successful at Oregon State.
"The fan support is great," he said. "I see why they call it the best college town in the PAC-12."
