Berkeley’s Morris-Walker to Oregon State

Berkeley High boys basketball star Langston Morris-Walker enjoyed his visit to the Oregon State campus over the weekend. On Monday morning, he decided he wanted to return.
The 6-foot-5 small forward gave his verbal commitment Monday to play for the Beavers.
“It’s always been my dream to play in the Pac-12,” Morris-Walker said. “The chance came and I had to jump on it.”
Morris-Walker chose Oregon State over UC Santa Barbara, Colorado and UTEP.
“There’s so many great people, it’s such a great town,” Morris-Walker said of Corvallis, Ore. “The coaching staff and players are such high-character people.”
He spoke highly of Beavers coach Craig Robinson, the brother-in-law of President Barack Obama.
“He’s a good person I wanted to be around the next four years.”
Morris-Walker was happy to get the decision over with so he can focus on his upcoming senior season.
“It’s such a relief,” Morris-Walker said. “ Now I just get to really think about school, and finish off my senior year.”
