De La Salle cornerback Tyler Anderson, who shared the load at running back with Terron Ward last season, has accepted an offer to join Oregon State’s football team as a preferred walk-on for the 2011 season.
“I took my visit to Oregon State and just loved the coaches and what they’re all about,” Anderson said. “They’re really family oriented. It reminds me of what I went through at De La Salle.”
Anderson was previously planning to go to Cal as a walk-on, and was also considering preferred walk-on offers from Washington and Boise State. He said the Beavers will look to play him at either cornerback or safety.
He’ll be joined in Corvallis by Ward, who committed in February as a gray-shirt enrollee.
