Is he close to going black and orange?

THE LIFEBLOOD OF any offense is the line. If you are solid up front with the big bodies, you don't have to be as letter perfect elsewhere at the so-called skill positions -- a dominating o-line means plenty of points and games won. And a hoss out of Southern California with an OSU offer may be close to pulling the trigger on the Beavs.

Colony High out of Ontario, Calif., already had one offensive lineman commit to a Pac-10 school.

And another could be close.

According to Colony head coach Anthony Rice, offensive lineman Joshua Andrews (6-4, 250), who was an all-state underclass pick a year ago, may be close to pulling the trigger at OSU.

"Joshua will commit to Oregon State soon," said Rice.

Already, Andrews' teammate, Quayshawn Buckley, has verballed to Washington State, the third year in a row that Colony has sent a player to the Pac-10.

Sounds like Andrews is close to making it two from the Titans.
