It appears another Inland Empire prospect will be heading to Oregon State next fall.

According to, Corona Santiago cornerback Sean Martin gave his commitment over the phone to Oregon State Coach Mike Riley on Saturday. The 6-foot, 180-pound defensive star chose the Beavers after talking with former teammate and Oregon State running back Ryan McCants last week.

Martin is considered one of the top cornerbacks in the Southland, recording two interceptions and 50 tackles this season. He is also one of the Sharks' top wide receivers. As a junior, he had 116 tackles and an interception.

Colony's Joshua Andrews, another Inland Empire standout, committed to the Beavers last week.
