Washington tight end ready to see OSU

As Oregon State's Junior Day draws near, BeaverBlitz checks in with Bothel, WA tight end Jarrell Anderson to get his thoughts on the upcoming trip.

Jarrell Anderson is one the West Regions best tight end prospects for the 2018 recruiting cycle. The 6-foot-4, 220 pounder out of Bethel High School in Tacoma has already picked up four offers but the 3* prospect feels that more could be on the way soon. 

“Idaho, Montana State, Hawaii and Nevada have all already offered me. And then I’m in contact with Stanford, Cal, UNLV, UW, Utah, Colorado State, Boise State and Oregon State. I would say that Oregon State, Cal and Colorado State all could be close to offering. I’m thinking OSU could at their upcoming Junior Day,” Anderson told BeaverBlitz.

Anderson is one of many of the Pacific Northwest’s top prospects that are expected to be in Corvallis for their Spring Game and Junior Day. Recently, Jarrell has been playing on the 7on7 circuit for Ford Sports Performance’s elite team alongside fellow Beaver targets Mason Starling, Elijah Winston, Daniel Arias and Anthony Stell. The group of them is expected to be in Corvallis and it could be a big weekend for Anderson. Based on conversations that he has had with Oregon State coaches, he could be picking up an offer from the Beavers soon.

“Getting a Pac-12 offer would be a huge part in the recruiting process as it would be my first Power-5 conference offer and that’s always the hardest one to get," he said.  "If it happens to be from OSU, that’d be great as I’m familiar with the area, the tight end coach and I'm actually in contact with their staff the most.”

“Mason and I have talked about playing college football together for awhile as we go way back. Then you throw in the opportunity to play with Daniel, Anthony and Elijah, it’s a huge factor and I could definitely see myself being down there at OSU as I love the college town feel that Corvallis has.”

Tight end is expected to be a position of high interest for the Beavers this cycle, as they have not brought in a scholarship player at that position in the past two recruiting cycles. BeaverBlitz will get back in touch with Anderson to see if he did indeed pick up an offer from OSU while at their junior day.
