Wayne Tinkle has held together half of Oregon State’s incoming recruiting class since taking over the position in mid-May. Although, on Tuesday evening, he may have lost one of the other remaining commitments.
According to Jeff Goodman of ESPN, Oldsmar Christian School (Florida) center Isaiah Manderson has been released from his National Letter of Intent.
The 6-foot-10 Manderson was the first commit in the Class of 2014 for then-head coach Craig Robinson. He pledged to the Beavers in July 2013. He was listed as a three-star recruit by Rivals, with offers from Cincinnati, Florida State, Kansas State, Maryland, Memphis, UCLA and UNLV among others.
Like Manderson, 6-foot-8 power forward Cameron Oliver continues to go over his options.
“We’re working to try and make progress there,” Tinkle told Jesse Sowa of the Corvallis Gazette-Times in a Q-&-A earlier this week. “I’m sure they want us to recruit them and get to know us a little bit. We’ll see how that goes.”
Three-star guards Chai Baker and Gary Payton II have both reaffirmed their commitments to Oregon State since Tinkle was hired.
