Lomax forges stronger bonds on visit

FUTURE BEAVER Jack Lomax (6-3, 180) had already spent considerable time at Oregon State before his official visit this weekend. But despite the familiarity with all things black and orange, the state's 6A offensive player of the year and Lake Oswego quarterback still found a few things new in Corvallis. He also spent some quality one-on-one time with OSU position coach and OC Danny Langsdorf.

Gut reaction:
"It was better than I expected. I had already committed and knew that I wanted to play there next year but going down there, the main thing for me was getting to hang out with the guys on the team," said Lomax.

What stood out:
"Being able to see what they really do and what really goes on at Oregon State, it was just really good to see they wanted to hang out with us as much as we did with them," said Lomax.

Player hosts:
"Shane Morales and Sean Canfield were our hosts and they took us around, we chilled at their house, we went and visited the campus, they talked about what the dorms were like -- it was an overall good experience, we went bowling with them, it was a lot of fun," said Lomax.

Film study with Danny Langsdorf:
"I went into coach Langsdorf's office and we looked over some film, we went over the (system) that they use for plays which is a little different than ours," said Lomax.

More film study:
"Everyone else wanted to go on the tour but I had already kind of toured everything so I stayed in with coach Langsdorf and we watched more film. That was a a good time," said Lomax.

Academic presentations:
"When the coaches spoke and had the academic counselors speak to us, they were all on the same page in trying to help us -- every single one of them was a big supporter of Oregon State football," said Lomax.

Feeling welcome:
"The first day when we got there Sean Canfield and Shane Morales took us bowling. And we hung out with Jacquizz Rodgers, we hung out with Lyle Moevao, James Rodgers was there -- we hung out with all the guys," said Lomax.

NOTABLE NOTE:
Lomax had one for the books his senior season, throwing for 3,738 yards with a ridiculous 46 touchdowns against just seven interceptions," said Lomax.
