Hunter Jarmon takes in Oregon State
By Damon Sayles
Wide receiver Hunter Jarmon (Waco, Texas/Midway) is inching closer and closer to making a decision. Over the weekend, Oregon State made its case, as Jarmon took in the Pacific Northwest experience on an official visit.
“It went really well,” said Jarmon, a 6-foot-1, 190-pound receiver. “Loved every minute of it.”
Jarmon said he was very impressed by the campus, the people of Corvallis, Ore., and the Beavers’ coaching staff. He watched Oregon State defeat Arizona State, 36-26, in front of 45,979 in attendance at Reser Stadium.
Freshman running back Chris Brown was Jarmon’s player host, and Jarmon said the two had a good time bonding. Jarmon’s being recruited by running backs coach Chris Brasfield.
Jarmon said Oregon State is on his list because the school is on board with him playing football and baseball. Jarmon is a standout outfielder for Midway. Oregon State won back-to-back NCAA national baseball titles in 2006 and 2007.
Jarmon had officially visited Kansas and Minnesota prior to Oregon State. He said he will take an unofficial visit Texas Tech this week, as the Red Raiders will host Kansas. Jarmon also said he will take official visits to Texas Tech and Washington State sometime after Thanksgiving.
