New Oregon State DB coach Rod Perry has had some positive reviews by players and coaches.
Check out how the The NFL vet is doing in his first spring practice in my story in Friday’s GT.
The DBs as a whole have been playing well this spring. Starting CBs Jordan Poyer and Rashaad Reynolds have made coaching easy for Perry.
S Ryan Murphy has been making QB Sean Mannion‘s life in practice difficult.
“It has been going really well,” Poyer said. “I’m working hard to be the best Ican with the time I have left. The secondary is coming together really well. We are closer than we have been in recent years.”
The second-tier guys have come on strong, too. Look for CB Malcolm Marable and S Tyrequek Zimmerman to make some plays in the fall.
S Anthony Watkins didn’t practice due to a shoulder injury, but is expected back in the fall. He was the team’s leading tackler last season.
