Pat Casey announced his Spring and Summer recruiting class today, and to no surprise, three of the seven are from Oregon. Of the other four, three of them are from the Northwest region. Only one of them doesn't fit into one of those categories, and even he isn't from far away; Arizona.
These seven players join 12 signees from the fall, bringing the grand total to 19.
The Spring/Summer Signees:
- Left-handed pitcher Kyle Foster (Castle Rock, Wash./Castle Rock HS, Lower Columbia CC),
- Outfielder Chris Hopkins (Oakland, Calif./Bishop O'Dowd HS, Sierra JC),
- First baseman Jordan Lennerton (Langley, B.C./Brockwood Secondary HS, El Paso CC),
- Joe Pratt (Monmouth, Ore./Central HS),
- Left-handed pitcher Kraig Sitton (McMinnville, Ore./McMinnville HS),
- Right-handed pitcher Jerad Thompson (Eugene, Ore./Churchill HS)

The Fall Signees:
- Outfielder Scotty Berke (Las Vegas, Nev./Sierra Vista HS),
- Infielder Jackson Evans (Vancouver, Wash./Hudson's Bay HS),
- Infielder Drew George (Lebanon, Ore./Lebanon Union HS, Lower Columbia CC),

- Left-handed pitcher Blake Keitzman (Roseburg, Ore./Roseburg HS),
- Right-handed pitcher D.J. Lidyard (Buckley, Wash./Cascade Christian HS, Lower Columbia CC),
- Right-handed pitcher-first baseman Chad Nading (Anchorage, Alas./East Anchorage HS),

- Right-handed pitcher Jorge Reyes (Warden, Wash./Warden HS),
- Infielder Steven Samples (Vancouver, Wash./Heritage HS) and

It looks like Casey yet again did another great recruiting job. Oregon State is becoming a bigger dot on the map.
