Oregon St. Flips San Diego St. Recruit Xavier Crawford II

New, 3 comments

Usually if Oregon St. is involved in a recruit "flipping", changing his mind about where to go, its to go somewhere else. But a good sign came tonight when Xavier Crawford II, who had had Oregon St. on his list originally, but had committed to San Diego St., announced tonight he has changed his mind, and now plans to become a Beaver after all.

The twitter-sation also seems to confirm that Bright Ugwoebu, who committed to Oregon St., but was of late reported to possibly be on the flip-fence himself, after continued interest from Oklahoma, Oklahoma St., and TCU, could still be solidly planning on coming to Oregon St. too.

Crawford is a 6', 170 lb. CB from Pittsburg High in Pittsburg, CA, and east of east bay suburb of the Oakland/Berkeley area, who beefed up his academics with a sting at Clayton Valley Charter in Concord.

Crawford is rated a 3 star prospect by Scout.com, though Rivals is only at 2 stars on him, and in addition to San Diego St. and Oregon St., San Jose St., UTEP and Wyoming had also made offers, as well as Big Sky schools Cal Poly, Montana, Eastern Washington, and UC-Davis.

With the addition of Crawford, unless there's some other unexpected movement, Oregon St. is down to 1 scholarship left to offer, which could go to 3 star lineman Kammy Delp of Pomona, CA.

Delp, a 6'3", 310 lb. lineman could play on either the offensive or defensive lines, and visited the Corvallis campus this past weekend. A dozen other FBS schools are all vying for Delp, including a half dozen Pac-12 teams.
