Teams from all over the country know where to come when they are trying to land a speedy receiver. The West Bank of New Orleans is a prime spot.

The Oregon State Beavers landed a commitment from Edna Karr senior Anthony Spurlock. The 6-foot-1, 165 pounder with 4.5 speed has offers from Idaho, Nicholls State, Troy and Jacksonville State.

Spurlock is a crafty route runner with a good burst out of his cuts. He creates good separation from defenders.

Following his visit to the Corvallis campus this past weekend to watch the Beavers drop a game to Minnesota, Spurlock felt comfortable enough to make a commitment. He becomes the fourth player to pledge to the Beavers for the ’18 class.

Oregon State is being very selective for this current class and only plan on having 16 scholarships available.

Spurlock was recruited to the Beavers by receivers coach and passing game coordinator Jason Phillips, a Crowley, La. native who played collegiately at Houston. Phillips collaborated with former Houston Heisman winning quarterback Andre Ware during his playing days before playing for the Detroit Lions and Atlanta Falcons in coach June Jones’ Run-and-Shoot offense.
