Oregon St. has added a couple of additional football players who aren't new to the college scene, with a JC commit and a transfer.
The Beavers continue to restock the interior of the defensive line with the commitment of Lyndon Tulimasealii, a 6'4", 270 lb. DT from College of the Desert in Palm Desert, CA.
Tulimasealii is originally from West Anchorage High, in Anchorage, AK, graduating in 2010. Here's a look at his high school video:
Tulimasealii played 2 season at College of the Desert, and recorded 38 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 4.5 tackles for a loss, and a fumble recovery last season. Both Rivals and Scout.com rate him a 3 star prospect. Tulimasealii has 3 years time to play 2 seasons of eligibility.
Tulimasealii had offers from Pac-12 schools Utah and Washington, and also Pittsburgh.
Oregon St. has also picked up a transfer from Montana St., as Hayden Craig, who is a local from Dayton, OR, has enrolled for winter term, and will walk on to start spring practice, opting to trade in his scholarship at Montana for a chance to play at the FBS level.
Craig was a 4 sport all-state selection at Dayton, and was the first player from a smaller school ever selected to play in the Les Schwab Bowl, the annual state all-star game previously reserved for athletes from only the largest (6A & 5A; Dayton is 3A) classes in Oregon.
Here's his high school highlight video:
Craig is 6'4", 250 LB, and could play either TE, where the Grizzlies had intended to use him, or DE for the Beavers, something coach Mike Riley will sort out later.
Craig originally considered Oregon St., before accepting an offer from Montana, and also had an offer from Portland St. Craig red-shirted this season at Montana, and has 4 years of eligibility remaining.
