S Chris Young verbally committed to the Oregon State football team over the weekend, according to Rivals.com.
He’s a 6-foot-2, 220-pound, three-star athlete out of Arizona Western College with three seasons to play two. Young chose the Beavers over offers from Indiana and Washington State.
Young is from Auburn, Wash., and was rated a four-star athlete by Scout.com. He singed with Washington out of Auburn High.
JC Grid-Wire named him a Junior College All-American and he was named the National Junior College Athletic Association’s Defensive Player of the Year. Young is known for his hard hitting and instincts.
The Beavers are up to 24 potential athletes in the 2012 recruiting class, and eight DBs. However, two are soft verbals and may go elsewhere and Young may move to OLB with his hitting ability.
Check out his highlights below. Mute the sound on the video if you don’t like rap, have little ones around or are at work.
The soft verbals
Four-star DB Devian Shelton is still committed to the Beavers after visiting Washington over the weekend, according to ESPN. Shelton plans to still visit Tennessee next weekend.
Three-star DB Cleveland Wallace is also still committed to the Beavers after a visit to Boise State. He visited Washington two weeks ago.
Also, Rivals.com ranks the OSU recruiting class No. 28 in the nation, seventh in the Pac-12 Conference. That’s pretty high for the Beavers.
The OL recruiting is ranked No. 5 in the country and the DB recruiting is No. 9.
And if you didn’t see this early in the weekend, the Beavers picked up a verbal from a Washington CB here.
