As the Oregon State coaching staff hits the final stretch until Signing Day, they received good news that 6-foot, 170 athlete Rashaad Reynolds from San Fernando (Calif.) verbally committed to play for Oregon State.
San Fernando coach Tim Hernandez confirmed that Reynolds committed and said that the Beavers were getting a good player.
"Yes, he committed yesterday," said Hernandez. "He is a great kid and a great player. He will perform well for the Beavers both on the field and in the classroom."
Reynolds was a star on offense and defense for the Tigers. As the quarterback he threw for nearly 1600 yards and rushed for 663 yards and combined for 22 touchdowns. On defense he tallied 5 interceptions.
He travelled to Corvallis on Friday and enjoyed his entire visit.
"I liked it," Reynolds said. "The facilities were great and the players on the team were all real nice. I fit in with them. Lance Mitchell was my host, he was a cool guy."
Reynolds committed on the spot after talking with Coach Heyward, the two went to sit down with Coach Riley who offered the scholarship.
"I told him that I was ready to commit," he said. "I'm excited to get in there and contribute."
Reynolds isn't sure yet when he will report to Corvallis. Coach Heyward and Coach Riley will be visiting the Reynolds's home on Thursday. BeaverBlitz will touch base with Reynolds after the visit.
