Akeem Gonzales commits to Oregon State 

February, 1, 2011
Alemany (Mission Hills, Calif.) two-way lineman Akeem Gonzales has committed to Oregon State over Arizona State and Washington.

"I actually committed last Friday," Gonzales said. "I had a wrestling tournament and was supposed to have an in-home visit with coach [Mike] Riley. The tournament went too long so coach Riley came to my tournament and we ended up talking at Alemany after I was done.

"That's when I told him I was a Beaver. I loved the college town there and the coaches have always been straight and very honest with me. Malcolm Marable, who's there now, is like a brother to me. We grew up together and he has been selling me on Oregon State for the last year. It was close because I liked ASU a lot too but Oregon State is where I'll be signing."
