Recruiting Class 09, Early Commits

After seeing CV's report, I decided to dip into my Rivals account to see just how our recruiting has been so far. Generally, Oregon State has been a slow recruiting team, picking up guys late in the season. However, as of now, we have 11 commits that break down to 7 3-stars, 3 2-stars, and 1 no stars. Interesting that three of our commits come from Oklahoma, a state that is now producing TWO excellent D1 programs. Hope to be able to keep this kids committed until signing day. This could be the best signing class we have had in some years. So anyways, here's a couple of names that CV3000 didn't mention that could have Oregon State fans excited in the next couple years.

Dax Dilbeck, QB, 6'1" 175, Edmond, OK

The kid could be our first dual threat QB in a long time (if ever). The 3-star kid runs a 4.5 40 and from what I read throws a pretty ball as well. He seems excited to be wearing the orange and black, as he said after the USC game: "It looked like it was amazing there," Dilbeck said. "They really got people talking about Oregon State here. A lot of people were excited because it made OU [Oklahoma] number one, but they also took note of the Oregon State atmosphere. I got a lot of text messages that night from people saying that they were excited for me." Now, as stacked as we are at QB, look for the kid to redshirt next year, and start competing for PT his RS Sophomore year. Plus, how could you not love a kid named Dax Dilbeck? If that doesn't scream Oregon State, then I don't know what else does.

Michael Doctor, OLB, 6', 195, Tulsa, OK

Anyone remember the name Derrick Dogget? This kid looks to be in the exact same mold as him. The 3-star kid is ranked as the #10 player in Oklahoma and the #27 OLB in the country. He's quick (he says he runs a 4.4 40, but who really knows) and strong. His only other offer was from Tulsa, but had "heavy interest" from A&M, Michigan, OU, and Oklahoma State. If you have a Rivals or Scouts account, I suggest you go and watch his video. Remember when you saw high school highlights of Jacquizz and said "Man this kid is gonna be good"? That's exactly what comes to mind when watching this boy play.

Kyrell Hudson, ATH, 6', 185, Vancouver, WA

Not sure where this kid projects for the football team, but the 3-star athlete is also committed to playing baseball for Pat Casey as well. He is just a flat out athlete. My guess would be WR or DB given his stats, but who knows what Riley and Co. will pull out of his hat.

Besides these three guys, we have a couple OL commits from Oregon (we love our local boys down here in Corvallis) another QB, and a few others. I will try to keep a weekly posting of recruiting as best as I can, letting you know of any new commits, official/unofficial visits, thoughts from recruits, etc. The fun part with Oregon State recruits is we look at the 1, 2, and 3 star guys and say "who is going to be the Next Sammie, the Next Sabby, or Doggett, etc. And as always, GO BEAVS!
