.@TMadison03 is coming to Corvallis. He’s a three-time all-league selection at Banning HS and is rated as one of the top running backs in the country. Welcome to #BeaverNation! #BTD19 #GoBeavs pic.twitter.com/4GPuFCirNL— Oregon State Football (@BeaverFootball) December 19, 2018
Madison was highly recruited by several Pac-12 teams, getting offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Washington, Washington State, Utah, and Oregon. He committed to Oregon State on October 2nd.
Next year’s running game will obviously focus on Jermar Jefferson, with Artavis Pierce sure to see a lot of action as well. Madison should probably be able to redshirt a year, but it will be exciting to see if he can get any time on the field early in the season.
Stay tuned for more Beaver news on Early Signing Day.
