OSU: Samoan Beast Commits -- Stud CB Makes 'Final Decision' -- Key Commits Wavering
Mageo is an unranked 6-foot-2, 220-pounder out of Samoana High. The plan is for Mageo to sign Wednesday and delay enrollment until the winter term as a greyshirt when scholarships are available.
The Beavers now have 25 potential players in the 2012 recruiting class.
At the moment, they are well beyond their scholarship allotment. Even with normal attrition and nonqualifiers, there will probably be many greyshirts.
With Wednesday being signing day, there are no expected visitors to OSU this weekend, according to Rivals.com.
Brian Fremeau at Football Outsiders described OSU as an overachiever in the past five years, as it has earned 24 victories from the recruiting classes it signed.
"Corvallis has been a challenging place for more talented teams to visit," he wrote. "The Beavers may never ascend to the top of the Pac-12, but they should be able to consistently contend and thrive in their giant-killer role."
Poyer has potential
ESPN.com NFL draft analyst Mel Kiper ranks cornerback Jordan Poyer as the No. 2 returning senior in terms of the 2013 NFL Draft.
Poyer was second-team all-conference last season with 16 passes defended. He's also a kickoff and punt return standout.
