Maher talks OSU future

The on-again, off-again saga of Kevin Maher's eligibility to play football at Oregon State appears to be off again --- maybe. Or perhaps not. The Lake Oswego defensive back's been away from a telephone the last few days but on Tuesday afternoon, he touched base with BeaverFootball.com in order to clear up the confusion on his future college plans.

When BeaverFootball talked to Maher this past Thursday for an article published Friday, Incoming Beavers prepare for OSU, Maher talked about the anticipation of wearing the black and orange at the Beavs fall camp, was planning a late July arrival in Corvallis and said he'd passed the SAT and graduated from high school.

Alas, the pledge that he'd qualified turned out to be a bit premature, Maher told BeaverFootball.com Tuesday afternoon.

The Portland Tribune reported on Friday that Maher had not qualified and would be attending Foothills JC. But Maher today told BF.C on Tuesday it has not yet been determined if he would head to Foothills, or if he would still attend Oregon State.

"The deal is I have the SAT to take two more times, and how I do on that will determine what's going to happen," said Maher. "It's undecided."

If Maher does land in Corvallis, however, it will likely be as a grayshirt since those two more passes at the SAT would come in October, November or December, the next times the SAT test is offered. If he does not enroll at Foothills, and then passes the SAT later this fall, he would be eligible to enroll at Oregon State in January.
