Beavers receive verbal from point guard

Craig Robinson got some good news on Tuesday afternoon.

Tom Hauck/Getty Images is reporting that Jahii Carson, a class of 2011 point guard, has verbally committed to Oregon State.

Carson averaged 27.3 points, 8 assists, and 6 rebounds per game during his sophomore year at Mountain Pointe High School in Phoenix. He also hit 54 of 156 three-point shots last season.

Besides the Beavers, Carson has gotten scholarship offers from UNLV, California, and Oregon.

The Phoenix product also plays basketball for the Compton Magic AAU team and won the "Elite 8 In the Desert" tournament MVP award.

ESPN has this to say about him:

"Carson handles the lead guard position with savvy way beyond his years. Although he's on the "smallish" side he has blazing speed, a smooth handle, and rarely turns the ball over. His passes are impeccable and he's a true point guard in every sense of the word. Overall, Carson is an excellent leader despite his youth and if he adds a few more inches to his frame he should develop into a high-major prospect."
