OREGON STATE continued a most impressive Signing Day recruiting roll right on into Wednesday evening, this time snaring another 4-star recruiting gem after a pitched recruiting battle with Arizona, ASU, Washington and others. Reggie Dunn, out of L.A.'s Verbum Dei, moments ago announced his decision -- he will be donning the Black and Orange as an outside receiver and return man for the Beavers.

"In the 2007 season, I will be taking my multi-talent abilities to Oregon State University," Dunn said on Fos Sports West.

What makes Dunn special out on the football field is that at 5-foot-9 and 160-pounds, he can both run like the wind and has solid technique, with crisp routes and a quick first step that puts defenders on the line of scrimmage at an immediate disadvantage.

Scout.com compares him favorably to another 4-star receiver out of the L.A. area in last year's class, the Bruins' Terrence Austin, in that both may be considered undersized but they can fly -- Dunn is arguably the fastest player in the West this recruiting cycle.

Dunn's speed had schools flocking to L.A. this past summer, after he ran a 4.4 in the 40 at UCLA's camp, a 4.3 at the Scout.com Combine and then a 4.28 at USC's camp.

Dunn also has the genes. He's the cousin of another so-called undersized standout who didn't do too badly at Florida State and then for the past 10 seasons in the NFL -- Warrick Dunn.
