Two-way standout pulls trigger
Defensive back/wide receiver James Dockery (6-1, 160, 4.6) from Palm Desert, Calif., has decided to make his decision of his future college known. Though he has verbally committed to a school, he will still take one more visit.
"Well I decided to make my decision and chose Oregon State," Dockery said. "I told coach Mark Banker and coach Mike Riley that I want to take one more visit to Fresno State just to make sure."
"I talked to my coach and I decided that Oregon State is the place for me," Dockery said. "But I will visit Fresno State on December 9th."
"I had a great time on visit to Oregon State," Dockery said. "John Reese an Oregon State commit and I had a great time. We clicked."
"I like Oregon State's environment and its old college atmosphere," Dockery said. "I've been in the desert during my high school years so I'm looking forward to the change."
"Unless something magical happens at Fresno State," Dockery said. "I'm an Oregon State Beaver."
Dockery is a standout who is getting the job done on both sides of the ball for a 9-0 and his area's No. 1 rated team.
As a wide receiver, Dockery has caught 42 passes for 712 yards and eight receiving touchdowns. This electrifying player would have 14 receiving touchdowns, but has had six called back because of penalties.
On the defensive side of the ball, Dockery has 85 tackles and seven interceptions.
Though Dockery is a talent on both sides of the ball the Beavers recruited him as a safety. He could see some action as a wide receiver.
Dockery is the only safety prospect the Beavers are going to sign out of the class of 2006.
Great get for Oregon State over other offers from BYU, UTEP, Oregon, Washington, and Fresno State.
