Oak Ridge (N.C.) Oak Ridge Military Academy cornerback Jeremy Reynolds made his decision earlier today. The 5-foot-9, 163-pounder decided to head west to the Pac-10.
"I committed to Oregon State earlier today," he said. "I called the head coach, Coach Riley. He was excited. He was really excited to have me be part of the team and then I talked to Coach Heyward. He was excited too and can't wait for me to be part of the Beaver family."
Reynolds selected Oregon State over offers from East Carolina, NC State, California, New Mexico State and Towson.

What made him decide to head across the country?
"I really enjoyed my visit when I was out there for camp," he stated. "I felt like I was kind of back home, it was an atmosphere like where I grew up in Greensboro. They are also the No. 1 family oriented program, they were voted No. 1 and the whole town revolves around Beamer football."
The coaches were critical as well.
"They were really down-to-earth and seemed like the care about their players," he said. "They care about my future not only academically, but as a person in general."
Oregon State recruited Reynolds as a cornerback.
The North Carolina prospect plans to graduate early and head out to Corvallis in January 2011.
