Growing Washington football prospect Trey Leckner receives offer from Oregon State Beavers
Under the leadership of head coach Jonathan Smith, the Oregon State Beavers football program has made major inroads in Washington State and transformed it into a major pipeline state.
That effort has already paid off in the Class of 2023 with the three-star engagement of Cooper Jensen from 247Sports, the first engagement for the state of Oregon in several years.
But Jensen is not the only player from Glacier Peak High School (Snohomish, Washington) to have aroused the interest of the staff.
Over the weekend, the Beavers welcomed Jensen’s teammate, growing athlete Trey Leckner, on an unofficial visit.
The 6-foot-2, 215-pound two-way speedboat left Corvallis with its first Pac-12 offering.
âI was in the living room with Cooper, my teammate, and they took me out to the balcony and Coach Smith and Coach (Trent) Bray made me my offer,â Leckner said. âI was super excited and felt like what I’m fighting for is being rewarded. It’s very important to me and it motivates me to push even harder.
Already viewing the visit as a success, Leckner said the game itself made the trip even better.
âThe atmosphere really helped the visit,â he said. âThe fans there are great and the team played fast and hard. It was a great experience. “
Considering his versatility, there were several places on the pitch that Leckner kept a close eye on to see how he could be used.
Although he primarily plays wide receiver and safety in high school, he plans on a different position in college – a challenge he is eager to take on.
âOregon State loves me as a linebacker,â Leckner said. âI think I can play a lot of different positions and make an impact at the next level. Whatever is best for the team is the best for me.
So, is a round trip planned?
âNo plan yet,â he said. “But I would love to come back to Corvallis.”
