Another big weekend for the Oregon State football team recruits is coming up in terms of volume of visitors.
There are 10 visitors planned on campus, according to Rivals.com. However, seven of them are already committed to the Beavers. They are:
OL Chase Eldredge
DB Chris Miller
WR Zach Robinson
OL Isaac Seumalo
LB Joel Skotte
TE Dustin Stanton
DT Calvin Tonga
Some of these guys are making their first visit to campus after committing such as Tonga and Robinson. So it will be interesting to see if the cold, wet Northwest scares any of them away.
Also of note is Seumalo being on the list. (Like he needs a visit.) Some folks in cyberspace think he’s headed to USC after visiting the land of sun, palm trees and starlets.
However, word on the mean streets of Corvallis said he just took that trip to take the trip, which is very common for athletes. Maybe it was also a way of reconnaissance for his dad, OSU DL coach Joe Seumalo.
Another interesting thing is three-star recruit Caleb Smith is supposed to visit this weekend (again) and decide to stay with the Beavers or change his commitment to UCLA or Arizona State.
The three visitors this weekend who are not committed anywhere are three-star DE Nate Iese from Elk Grove, Calif., DE Pasoni Tasini from Wailuku, Hawaii and three-star DB Chris Young from Arizona Western College.
OSU is loaded in with players in those positions, but as noted in a previous blog coach Mike Riley always finds room with attrition and greyshirts.
Four-star DB recruit Devian Shelton from Inglewood, Calif., will visit Washington this weekend, according to ESPN. Shelton was recruited by former DB coach Keith Heyward, who took the same job at Washington this month. Shelton opened up his recruiting after Heyward left OSU.
Three-star DB recruit Kentrell Brice is also looking around. He’s visiting Ole Miss this weekend, according to Scout.com. He visited the Beavers last weekend, and might not have like the distance from his home in Louisiana. And he was in a snow storm in Corvallis.
