Del City athlete Corey Lawrence took his recruitment nearly down to the wire before deciding late last week to commit to Oregon State.

Lawrence, No. 16 on The Oklahoman's Super 30 list of the state's top recruits, chose the Beavers over New Mexico and also had offers from Arkansas State, Indiana, Kansas State, New Mexico and Tulsa.

Lawrence primarily played wide receiver for the Eagles this season but is likely to play defensive back at Oregon State. He earned Oklahoman first-team All-State honors as a senior.

With Lawrence's commitment, only two players from the Super 30 remain uncommitted — Lawton MacArthur's Darius Graham (No. 12) and Edmond Santa Fe's Trevan Smith (27).

Another player on the list, Jenks running back Trey'Vonne Barr'e, recently committed to National Junior College Athletic Association champion Iowa Western.
