Beavs keeping tabs on in-state WR

THERE ARE A number of prospects within state borders drawing Oregon State interest this recruiting cycle. One who received a recent phone call from the Beavs hails from Salem, is a decorated three sport athlete and has been to OSU's junior day. His plans also call for a return Corvallis engagement for Oregon State's camp.

Jordan Bishop looks to be one of those recruits schools want to see more of and/or up close before deciding whether to offer. He is still, however, receiving some pretty solid interest with Oregon State and others using the one phone call they're allowed to make to prospects during the recently concluded May Evaluation period.

"I received phone calls from Oregon, Oregon State, Boise State, and PSU," said Bishop.

At the recent state track and field championships, Bishop took 2nd place in the long jump, 2nd in high jump and 4th place in the 400-meters, clocking a time of 49.56. That's not all he's been up to, though.

A unanimous first team all-league selection on both sides of the ball as a junior, Bishop also excels in basketball, taking home unanimous first team all-league honors on the court as well.

"I have been pretty busy with football, summer basketball and some more track stuff too," said Bishop.

He also reports a recent personal best in the weight room.

"Last Thursday I moved my clean max up to 300 pounds," he said.

Bishop runs in the 4.5 range in the 40 and most schools like him at the receiver position at the next level. As a junior, Bishop hauled in 40 receptions for 651 yards and 7 TDs on offense for West Salem High.

His honors and accolades this past season include a Central Valley Conference All-Star selection, unanimous first team wide receiver and first team cornerback, as well as honorable mention all-state.
