Oregon State offered Spurlock back in May, and the Beavers kept in touch with the 6-foot-1, 165-pounder throughout the summer. There are reasons to believe that Spurlock was ready to commit quite some time ago, but Oregon State wanted Spurlock to make the long trip out from New Orleans to Corvallis for him to see if OSU is the right fit for him.
Spurlock was recruited by Jason Phillips, who has ties in the New Orleans area.
"We keep in touch and have talked a lot since then," Spurlock said in June. "He's just trying to get me up to the campus before I make a commitment. Right now they’re my top school because they have what I'm looking for with my major, computer engineering, and what they can offer me on the football side.
After his official visit this past weekend, Spurlock left Corvallis with the feeling that Oregon State was in fact the right fit for him.
"I feel like it's the school for me and everyone in that town is for you," Spurlock revealed to BeaversEdge.com just before going public with his decision. "Also, the coaches really care for you.
"The overall visit was amazing. It was wonderful being to a place I have never be before and seeing what all they have to offer. I really like the small town of Corvallis every is so friendly and always happy."
Look for Spurlock to remain a solid commit for the Beavers.
