CCSF/OSU connection strong

<b>CITY COLLEGE OF SAN FRANCISCO has produced a talent pipeline flowing to Division 1-A schools over the years. Four CCSF standouts have come to Oregon State in the last two signing classes, including cornerback Edorian McCullough, who spurned an offer from Oklahoma to sign with the Beavs this past recruiting class. The 2006 crop at CCSF is, again, a banner group -- with no less than 14 potential Division I-A prospects in the fold.

CCSF is arguably the top JC football program in the country, with a truckload of titles and an incredible track record of producing Div-IA talent.

Over the past two years, an amazing 29 players graduating from CCSF have signed with Division I-A schools. This year, Rams head man George Rush counts no less than 14 student-athletes with the talent to make the jump to the next level.
