The Oregon State Beavers women’s basketball program has established a tradition of landing some of the nation’s best talent on the recruiting trail.
In the class of 2020, Scott Rueck and his coaching staff secured commitments from Arkansas five-star guard/wing Sasha Goforth, while 2021 provided Greta Kampschroeder, the nation’s No. 14 guard, and Talia Von Oelhoffen, the No. 5 wing nationally.
On Monday, Oregon State extended its hot streak into the 2022 class, landing Colorado star Raegan Beers, the nation’s No. 22 overall prospect and No. 4 post player according to ESPN:
Beers, who visited Corvallis in January, is currently considered a four-star prospect, but ESPN bestows five-star status on its top 53 players by Signing Day each recruiting cycle, meaning she is almost certain to earn a fifth star before she arrives on campus.
As a sophomore, the 6-foot-2 post averaged 15.5 points, 10.1 rebounds (4.5 offensive rebounds), 1.6 assists, 2.1 blocks and 1.8 steals while shooting 65 percent from the field and 58 percent from the free-throw line.
Beers is the second commitment in Oregon State’s 2022 recruiting class, joining Texas guard Adlee Blacklock, a high-scoring playmaker who averaged 21.3 points and 6.7 rebounds per game as a sophomore.
