Oregon State remained busy on the recruiting front this week, dishing out an offer to 2020 forward Maurice Calloo, a junior college product from Indian Hills Community College in Iowa.
Calloo began his collegiate playing career at Oklahoma State in 2018-2019, seeing action in 16 games for the Cowboys, where he averaged 2.5 points and 1.6 rebounds per contest. He was however dismissed from the team by head coach Mike Boynton after in mid-January of last season, after being accused of vandalism in the Stillwater area.
Callo’s original plan was to then transfer to Cleveland State, but he spent last season at Indian Hills, where he posted 9.1 points and 3.9 rebounds per game for a 30-3 team that was heading into the NJCAA National Tournament as one of the favorites to claim the title. He becomes the second recent player from the junior college ranks to be offered by the Beavers program, following Tallahassee Community College (FL) guard Tariq Silver.
