Scout.com recaps recruiting in the DFW Metroplex for the week of July 7-13. …
Beavers Land DFW OL
By the beginning of the week, Beau Hott had accumulated five FBS offers, but a visit to the Pacific Northwest made up his mind. The Plano (Texas) offensive lineman announced via Twitter on Tuesday evening that he had committed to Oregon State. Proud to say that this evening I committed to play # pac12 football for the Oregon State Beavers! #gobeavs God is good pic.twitter.com/toOzkQCgih— Beau Hott (@HottBeau) July 9, 2014 Hott recently spent several days in Corvallis, Ore., and immediately fell in love with scenic college town. He also got to know the Oregon State staff well during his late June visit. The picture at left that Hott included in his commitment tweet features Hott flanked by Oregon State offensive line coach Mike Cavanaugh (left) and Beavers head coach Mike Riley (right). That played a critical role in his decision to go ahead and commit. "I loved that family atmosphere," Hott said. "Corvallis is a place I would love to call home for four or five years." Hott, who measured 6-foot-3, 273 pounds at the Dallas Nike Football Training Camp at DeSoto High School on April 5, noted that Oregon State wants him to play center or guard once he arrives. Hott chose Oregon State over four other offers from Air Force, Memphis, New Mexico, and North Texas. Plano now has two players in its 2015 class who have made commitments. The first was Sam Tecklenburg, a versatile lineman who has experience on both sides of the trenches, as well as tight end. Tecklenburg committed in April to Baylor.
