Oregon State lands CCSF small forward Keondre Dew

After beginning his college career at Tulsa, 6-foot-8 small forward Keondre Dew transferred to the City College of San Francisco. Dew has been recruited by a host of high-major programs since his move back to the west coast, and Sunday afternoon the CCSF basketball program announced that Dew has verbally committed to Oregon State.

Dew becomes Wayne Tinkle’s third commitment in the Class of 2016, joining combo guard JaQuori McLaughlin and power forward Ben Koné in Oregon State’s 2016 recruiting class to date. Dew’s verbal pledge comes on the heels of his official visit to Oregon State this weekend.

The San Bernardino, California native didn’t see much playing time in his lone season at Tulsa, playing an average of 5.5 minutes per game in 21 appearances for the Golden Hurricane.

Oregon State will lose five scholarship seniors at the end of the 2015-16 season, including wings Jarmal Reid and Langston Morris-Walker. The addition of the versatile Dew should help the Beavers account for those personnel losses while also supplementing what holdovers such as current freshman Tres Tinkle will bring to the table.
