Stockton (Calif.) St. Mary's quarterback Cody Vaz is one of the top signal callers in the West this year. He took in several camps over the last month and after landing an offer from Oregon State earlier this morning, Vaz decided to put an end to his recruitment.
Vaz, 6-1, 200 pounds is a talented kid who earned 1st team all-state underclass honors as a junior. He threw for 3,265 yards and 33 touchdowns and two very good workouts at the NIKE Camp at Stanford and Elite 11 regional camp in Berkeley.
Vaz has been busy camping with Nebraska, Nevada, Washington and Washington State and was at Oregon State last Sunday (June 22).
"I had a great time and really liked it there," Vaz said. "Coach Riley and Coach Langsdorf took me and a couple of other quarterbacks in to the stadium and we threw in front of him for awhile.
"Afterwards, Coach Langsdorf told me they liked me a lot and were thinking about offering. This morning, I called up Coach Langsdorf and he told me that I had an offer and I committed on the spot.
"Oregon State is just a great fit and I felt so comfortable there. I love the coaching staff and the city of Corvallis as well. It's a great campus, with great fan support. Corvallis is a college town and my whole family thought it was a great place for me.
"Washington and Washington State were close to offering as well but I knew Oregon State was the best place for me so I didn't need to wait around for anyone else. I'm very excited about my decision and happy to be going to Oregon State. I like the Pac 10 a lot and it's close to home still so like I said, just a great all around fit for me."
