Offensive lineman Joshua Andrews (6-2, 260, 5.0) from Ontario (Calif.) Colony was one of the fastest rising offensive line prospects in Southern California when his senior season rolled around. Ever since September, Andrews picked up a lot of interest from Pac 10 schools and he recently committed to one.
"Joshua committed to San Diego State early on, but as the season went on, he received a lot of interest from Pac 10 schools," Colony coach Anthony Rice said. "(Oregon State head coach) Mike Riley called him up and offered so as of now, he's going to Oregon State."
"Arizona State is trying to get in the mix and may offer," Rice added. "Washington and Washington State (offer) started to jump into the fray."
The Beavers get a player in Andrews who has long arms and good feet. He has a tremendous upside and isn't even close to the finished product. He's athletic, and very quick.
Andrews has superior lower body strength as his 500-pound squat would indicate. He has also recorded an outstanding, for a big man, 30-inch vertical jump.
Andrews earned all-CIF and all-state for both his sophomore and junior seasons and he was one of the main reasons that Colony won back-to-back CIF Championships.
Andrews is the type of player that the Beavers have made their living on since the arrival of Riley as their head coach.
Andrews picked the Beavers over offers from Colorado State, San Diego State, and Washington State.
