RECRUITING: Andrews stays a Beav

WASHINGTON MADE A late push for Oregon State verbal Joshua Andrews out of Colony High in Ontario, Calif. and the Huskies even brought him out on an official visit to Seattle after his trip to Corvallis. But in the end, it was the Beaver coaching staff that made the difference as Andrews reaffirmed his commitment to OSU Thursday evening.

"I decided that Oregon State is where I want to be," Andrews told Dawgman Thursday evening. "It was mainly the relationship I had with the OSU coaching staff and how long I had known them and felt a comfort level with them.

"Washington really sold me on the program and I was all focused on going there, but it came down to the fact that I didn't really have a relationship with them because they were all new there and I didn't really have that fall back on."

Washington and Oregon State were Andrews' only two offers, but he was also receiving interest from Arizona State, Arizona, Colorado and San Diego State as well.

Andrews was named All-CIF-Southern Section and All-CIF-State as a senior, junior and sophomore, and was a driving force in Colony's Central Division back-to-back championship runs during his junior and sophomore campaigns.

"Joshua is a tremendous athlete with so much upside," says his prep coach Anthony Rice. "He is a student of the game and a leader here on our campus at Colony."
