Keondre Dew is a Junior College transfer from San Francisco City College. He is a 6-foot-8, 220-pound Small Forward.

Out of high school, Keondre Dew held offers from UConn, DePaul, Florida State, Hawaii, Kansas State, Memphis, Oklahoma State, Oregon State, Central Florida and Washington State.

He decided to commit to Tulsa, but it ultimately did not work out. Dew has admitted to making some mistakes in the past and said a lot of it had to do with his ego, so he decided to drop down to the junior college ranks to “ reinvent himself.” Tinkle was impressed with his attitude and his honesty and jumped at the opportunity to bring him to Corvallis.

Offensively and defensively Keondre can play and guard multiple positions. His versatility will allow him to be all over the court for the Beavers. He is a very long and athletic player who will help bolster this young Oregon State team.

“Keondre is a good mid-range shooter,” Tinkle says. “We need him to be aggressive — slashing, crashing and being another handler on the floor.”

Dew’s experience and versatility will be huge for the Beavers. If he can carve out a role for himself as a do-it-all type of player that can help as a scorer, rebounder, and ball-handler, then he will become a household name very quickly.
