Oregon St. Recruiting Into The Grey Area

Oregon St. received their 25th. commitment for the 2012 football recruiting season when Rommel Mageo from Pago Pago, American Samoa verbaled to the Beavers this week.

Here's his video:

Mageo, who is unranked by both and, is a 6'2", 225 lb. middle linebacker that Oregon St. is looking at to delay enrollment until winter term 2013.

While Oregon St. isn't over the maximum number of players they can sign, they are headed for being well over the 85 scholarship limit if nearly all of the commits come thru next week with a signed LOI. So there will certainly be some number of delayed enrollments, something that is becoming increasingly common, as many players who redshirt at some point complete their degree during fall term of that 5th. year.

Grey-shirts that start winter term often therefore actually complete their degree in a subsequent fall term.

Towards that end, Oregon St. has also offered a grey-shirt opportunity to Sam McCaskill, after he visited the campus last weekend. McCaskill is a 6'4", 240 lb. DE from Sheldon High School in Eugene, OR. McCaskill, rated a 2 star prospect by both and, also has offers from FCS schools Montana and Portland St., where he could enroll in the fall, and is interested in both Harvard and Princeton as well.

McCaskill is still deciding on his plans among a variety of options.

Kenny Lawler, a 6'3", 185 lb. 4 star WR prospect from Upland, CA, who visited Corvallis last weekend remains the big unknown in the Beavers' recruiting picture. Lawler will visit California this weekend, and also has Washington St. and new coach Mike Leach's "Air Raid" offense on his list.

Steffon Martin, another JC recruit from Arizona Western, and a 3 star LB prospect, also visited the Oregon St. campus last weekend, and is in Tempe to take a look at Arizona St. this weekend. Martin is 6'3", and 235 lbs.
