A new school is interested in Bellamy

Greenbelt (Md.) Eleanor Roosevelt defensive back Travon Bellamy still holds two offers from Illinois and North Carolina, but the 6-foot-0, 178-pounder has been hearing from a new team recently from the Pac-10.
"Oregon State has been contacting me and mentioned an offer. They are just waiting to see my first two games of the season, pretty much everybody is waiting for my first two games," he said. "I haven't really researched Oregon State's program. They play on the West Coast in a competitive conference and that's all I know right now. I need to do more research on their program. Location doesn't matter at all for me because I can adapt to any environment. UCLA is also recruiting me and I just want to go somewhere I'm comfortable, it doesn't matter where."
The No. 17 player in Maryland claims to not have a top five at this time.
"I probably won't have one until the end of the season," he said. "My main focus this year is to win a state championship. I'm not going to stop recruiting completely this season, as I'll be taking a look at all the programs and watching their games and seeing how they do."
The prospect has started up practice though and has seen the team come together already.
"We're looking great and should be favored to win it all," he said. "I'm going to be starting at wide receiver and defensive back this year. I'm excited to play receiver and I've got a great quarterback in Nico Scott throwing the ball to me. We've done some passing leagues and looked great. In five games, I had seven touchdowns and four interceptions. Nico and my chemistry is great."
Bellamy went on to talk about potential official visits.
"Illinois will probably be my first official. I've talked to my recruiting coach about going up there, but we just have to figure out a date. My parents want to go during the season to see the atmosphere and environment there," he said. "Most likely North Carolina will also get one. I plan on taking all five of my visits. I was planning to go to UCLA for an unofficial on August 1st, but because of financial problems I wasn't able to go. If they offer me, most likely I'll take a visit out there too."
Bellamy's first game of the season is on September 10th.
Bellamy recorded 72 tackles, seven interceptions and five deflected passes as he was named all-county and all-league as a junior.
