Oregon State is casting a wide net in their recruiting efforts and with new wide receiver coach Jason Phillips' ties to Texas and Louisiana, the Beavers hope to land a few playmakers in the 2018 class.
This month Phillips offered 6-foot-4, 200 pound athlete Cameron Thomas who will be attending Baton Rogue (Louisiana) Southern Lab this fall. While Thomas plays safety and receiver, he confirmed with BeaverBlitz that Oregon State likes him as a receiver in their offense.
Thomas currently has offers from several smaller schools, but Oregon State is the first Power Five program to offer him and he is excited to see the campus this fall.
"Right now I want to visit the campus," he said. "The things I am hearing so far sounds pretty good."
Thomas already has his official visit planned for early September when the Beavers host Minnesota. He also isn't ruling out an early commitment should he like what he sees in Corvallis.
"When I visit campus on September 9, I could commit," he said. "I just want to get a closer relationship with the coaches."
