BREAKING: Beavs land SW Washington hoss

A 6-6, 260-POUND PREP prospect from the Southwest corner of the Evergreen State tripped to Corvallis this past weekend. He had been deciding between a pair of Pac-10 schools but no longer is that the case. While on his official visit to OSU, he pledged black and orange and BF.C talks to the newest member of the Oregon State family.

"I really liked it a lot and actually ended up committing to them on Saturday night," said Colin Kelly of his trip to Oregon State.

"It was basically the people. Everything they had to offer I knew was great, and academically it was awesome because I talked to three different teachers and counselors Saturday morning. All the people there just made it for me."

Kelly, who played tight end in high school, was being recruited at offensive tackle but Oregon State this weekend said he could also end up elsewhere -- tight end, defensive end or h-back. He chose Oregon State over an offer from Washington State.

Grayshirting, said Kelly, remains a possibility.

"Actually I do not know, I talked to them about it and they don't know yet either. They said they would know kind of around Feb. 6 but said they really didn't know for sure yet," said Kelly.

Kelly, out of Kelso High, earned first team all-league honors this past season at tight end while also playing defensive end for Kelso. He is also averaging nearly nine points a game this season on the hardcourt.
