Four star hoss talks OSU, recruiting

CHARLES SIDDOWAY grew up in Philomath, just five minutes outside of Corvallis, before moving to Eugene a year ago. Rated the No. 16 prep prospect in the nation at his position by, the 6-7, 310-pounder took in some of the sights and sounds of spring football in Corvallis recently. But although he holds three Pac-10 offers already, and four total, his recruitment looks to be just starting.

More recently, offensive tackle Siddoway (6-7, 310) has been talking to the Ducks and Bruins but before that, said he was most in contact with Oregon State.

"It's been a while since I talked to Oregon State but before that, they were talking to me the most often...I guess it's been Oregon and UCLA that I talked to most recently," said Siddoway.

Oregon State was the last D-IA school to wind up their spring session this past Saturday, watching offensive line coach Mike Cavanaugh do his thing.

"I went to one or two spring ball practices, probably Coach Cav is the one I've talked the most to," said Siddoway. He seems like a pretty good line coach. He gets his players to do what they're supposed to do."

"Oregon seems like a great place and their coaches have been there a long time."

SIDDOWAY, WHEN ASKED if he could just as easily see himself leaving the Beaver State for California for his college turn as he could staying closer to home, said distance will not be much of a factor.

"California is still close enough so I could still visit my family and my family could still visit me," said Siddoway.

SIDDOWAY SAID he holds no other unofficial visit plans to schools besides the Oregon State and UO trips he's taken but said there's always the opportunity to head over again to Corvallis or stop in at UO, and he'll be attending a NIKE camp in Palo Alto next weekend.

The relationship with the coaches he develops over the coming months looks to be key to where he eventually pledges to play his college ball.

A previous report said that Siddoway favored Oregon, Oregon State and Boise State slightly over Georgia Tech and Cal but Siddoway told BF.C he has no leaders.

"I don't even really have any favorites and I'm still trying to keep open because there's still a possibility I could get other offers. The schools I've talked to are (slightly standing out) just because I've been able to talk to them more," said Siddoway.

Siddoway was a second team all-league selection on defense and honorable mention on offense as a junior. All schools are recruiting him as an offensive lineman at the next level.
