Land O’Lakes QB James Pensyl has orally committed to Oregon State, Gators coach Brian Wachtel said Thursday evening.

Pensyl, a 6-foot-7, 205-pound lefty, was also recruited by USF, among others.

Pensyl was one of Tampa Bay’s top passers as a junior last fall. He threw for almost 2,500 yards and 22 touchdowns with only three interceptions. He also led the Gators with five touchdown rushes and was second with 162 rushing yards. Pensyl was a key reason why Land O’Lakes finished 8-2 and nearly advanced to the Class 6A playoffs.

Pensyl would become Pasco County’s first quarterback to sign a scholarship with a Football Bowl Subdivision program since former Gator Stevie Weatherford signed with Cincinnati in 2011.

Oral commitments are non-binding until recruits sign letters of intent during their senior years.
