Yesterday was Letter of Intent day around the nation. This is a huge event now with ESPNNews covering live announcements and blogs and tweets flying around all day.
Honestly, that is just mean to Beavers fans.
The Twitter-verse had this to say:
@johndrobbins: Odighizuwa now has to lose to OSU for the next 4 years, tough choice buddy! #gobeavsOwa was a huge recruit and could have been the first 5 star HS player to commit to OSU in recent memory. Probably one the only ones to actually make it into school as well... anyways, enough about Owa because its a good, if small, recruiting class for OSU.
@OSUBeaverFan: Owa may get to play in the Rose Bowl every weekend but the Beavers will play in "The Rose Bowl Game" before UCLA does. Enjoy Owa #gobeavs
@Pnbuker: O-Live bulletin on Owa's interesting choice of shirt as Beavs get Neuheiseled ... http://bit.ly/d18eLb
New Oregon State Beavers Recruits:
From 2010 Beaver Signing Day Central
Tyler Perry - TE - Ventura, Calif. (Buena)There are some very intriguing players in there. We clearly are looking to help the defense. But a few of these guys may switch if needed. D.J. Welch runs a 4.39 40 as a LB. Awesome, but if he can't put on weight he could be a safety or switch to the offense. Shaydon Akuna was a highly rated player and a great "get". Sean Mannion is big and looks good at QB.
