Though his team suffered a 57-39 loss versus Upland (Calif.) in Friday's match up, Etiwanda (Calif.) receiver Jordan Villamin had one of the night's strongest performances on the field.

Villamin had 101 yards for a touchdown on five receptions through the first two quarters alone, finishing the game with 215 yards and another two touchdowns. A legitimate 6-foot-4, 215-pounds, Villamin also played a prime role in the Eagles' defense, impressing with his blocking ability.

"The highlight for me tonight was my first touchdown, when I went down the field and made people miss me. I think I've gotten better with my hands and routes, have more explosion. I've gotten bigger and more physical, so I can break more tackles," he said after the game.

The receiver, who thinks he could gain another ten pounds in college, committed to Oregon State in July and has enjoyed watching the Beavers' successful season.

"I've been watching them a lot. They have been doing really well. They get the receivers the ball a lot; Cookie [Beavers' receiver Brandin Cooks] has been doing a great job. I met him when I took my unofficial and he's just a great guy. I'm glad he's doing big things, because he deserves it," he said.

The receiver is looking forward to joining the team next fall.

"I can definitely fit into their offense. I think it's close to the offense we run, a little bit of pro-style, so it will be good," he said.

He has planned his official visit for November 24th, when the Beavers host Oregon.

Villamin and fellow Oregon State receiver commit, Victor Boldin, who are long-time friends, have continued to discuss their enthusiasm in playing college ball together next season. Villamin has also done a bit of recruiting for his future team, talking with Beaverton (Ore.) Aloha offensive guard Brayden Kearsley.

The receiver took an official visit to Utah earlier this season (another program from which he holds an offer) and said after the game that he had tentative plans to unofficially visit Fresno State over the weekend with teammate Cameron James, an offensive tackle.

"They have been recruiting me since the summer; they just wanted to see the first couple of games before offering me," he said.

For now, Villamin is set with his decision, and though his senior season is over, he's proud of his progression.

"I played my heart out this year," he said.
