Thanks to the Rivals.com folks who track high school and JC athletes and their recruiting, here are some notes of interest.
The Oregon State football team is up to 103 known scholarship offers, but no commitments yet. The Beavers are the only major conference team without a commitment at this point.
Rivals believe the slow start is due to the change in coaching staff getting adjusted and the recent losing. Another thing to point out is that the players are so young, no one wants to be stuck low on the depth chart.
The QB, RB, DE and TE positions are loaded with underclassmen starters. There are seven new OL coming in. The LB and DB positions have some young starters and underclassmen primed to take over.
So we’ll go over the offensive guys first with offers, and get to the defensive guys later.
The three pro-style QBs of interest committed elsewhere. There are two three-star running QBs with offers.
Nine RB have offers with the five-star, Thomas Tyner from Beaverton, going to Oregon. One of the three four-stars in the group is going to USC.
There are 14 WRs offered — eight four-stars and two of them going to USC. There are six TEs offered and the one four-star is going to Ohio State.
There are 10 OL offered, two four-stars, and two three-stars are going elsewhere already. One outstanding offer is to a JC guy.
It looks like the Beavers blanketed all the areas and are looking for the best possible guy. There’s no areas ignored.
