Squally Canada could be inching closer to a commitment.
The Milpitas, Calif., running back took a visit to Oregon State for its embarrassing loss to Eastern Washington in the season opener but that has not soured Canada's belief that the Beavers could be the right team for him.
"The trip was great," Canada said. "I loved it up there. It's a great atmosphere and coach Mike Riley is a great coach. The players are great. I met the redshirt freshman class and they're great people, too. They just showed me around and told me what it was like up there.
"It definitely feels like a place where I would fit. They don't have a lot of running backs. They only have like four running backs and they run a pro-style offense and that style is more downhill so that fits me perfectly."
Oregon State is clearly the leader for Canada, a 5-foot-11, 180-pound prospect, but his commitment might not come so soon.
The Northern California prospect is still trying to schedule some other trips but he's going to take another visit to Oregon State in November and it looks like Corvallis could be his future home.
"I feel like taking some other trips but I plan to go up there again in November when they play Washington," Canada said.
"If I don't have any trips by then, I don't know what's going on with the process right now, but I definitely like Oregon State. I'm just going to wait it out and take some more visits. Oregon State is looking really good right now."
Canada could take a visit to Colorado sometime in December. He wanted to visit Nevada last weekend but those coaches never responded to him.
A former Boise State commit, Canada also has offers from Colorado State, Houston, San Jose State and Washington State.
