Oregon St. picked up another verbal commitment for their 2012 football recruiting class, after Tyler Hasty from Bellevue, WA, announced he's going to be a Beaver. Hasty made his decision after visiting visited the Corvallis campus last weekend.
Hasty, a 6'0", 180 lb. corner back from Washgington power Bellevue High, played both ways for the Wolverines, who have won 4 consecutive WIAA 3A state championships.
Hasty, whose' father James played in the NFL, is a 3 star recruit according to both Rivals.com and Scout.com.
Here's his highlight video:
Hasty has been timed at 4.5 in the 40 on turf:
Hasty chose Oregon St. over Colorado and Idaho.
His addition brings the Beavers' recruiting list to 1 signed JC transfer, and 22 verbals, though 4 of those are officially rated as "soft verbals", in part as a result of indecision on the part of defensive backs Devian Shelton and Cleveland Wallace in the wake of former defensive backfield coach Keith Heyward having taking the same position at Washington.
Oregon St. now has 7 defensive back commits, including Shelton and Wallace, and the addition of Hasty provided some insurance in the event either of them decide to de-commit.
