Rising DE with OSU offer eyes Corvallis visit

HE MAY HAVE flown under the radar for a while in terms of recruiting coverage but that's not the case with college recruiters -- Oregon State offered him long ago. He's a rising defensive end prospect who checks in at 6-3, 225 pounds and his plans call for an official visit to Corvallis in the coming weeks.

Defensive end prospect Scott Crichton (6-3, 225, 4.7) out of Tacoma's Foss High will be tripping to Oregon State in the not too distant future.

"We haven't set a date yet but they said we'll talk about it when we get the chance. (Recent conversations) are just about how I'm doing, academics, things like that," said Crichton.

Crichton was the anchor of the Foss defense this season. After earning second team all-league honors on defense as a junior, Crichton exploded as a senior to not only make the first team but also capture the Narrows League Defensive MVP award. He also earned second team honors for his work at tight end.

Oregon State and others like Crichton on the defensive side of the ball.

Crichton took his first official visit this past weekend to WSU, the other Pac-10 school to have offered him.

"The trip was really fun, it's just a great place," said Crichton. "I loved it over there."

His senior season tackle numbers were unavailable, though he had a blocked punt and fumble recovery. Offensively, as Foss' tight end this year, he reportedly had 25 receptions for 332 yards with 3 TD's for the 5-5 Falcons.
