Gilmore, who is listed as 6'3", and 195 pounds, also had offers from Arizona State, Michigan, Notre Dame, and Washington.
"I told Coach (Brent) Brennan I was committing," Gilmore said. "It was the best fit, and Coach Riley said I'm going to do big things there."
Brennan, who joined the Oregon St. coaching staff this past spring as the wide receivers coach, had been recruiting Gilmore in his previous position with San Jose St., and continued to pursue him after coming to head coach Mike Riley's staff.
