QB Luke Del Rio To Become A Beaver

Luke Del Rio has announced he is transferring to Oregon St.

Luke Del Rio, the son of Denver Broncos Defensive Coordinator Jack Del Rio, has announced he's transferring to Oregon St. Head coach Mike Riley welcomed Del Rio this afternoon.

The younger Del Rio was originally recruited and offered a scholarship out of Highland Ranch, CO, by Oregon St., as well as Oklahoma St., Colorado St., but opted instead to walk on at Alabama. After 1 season in Tuscaloosa, and with a new quarterbacks coach in Lane Kiffen coming on board, Del Rio announced Wednesday that he was walking off.

Del Rio, who is 6'2" and around 205 lbs., is a pro-style quarterback, and was rated a 3 star prospect out of high school. He enters the running a year from now to replace senior to be Sean Mannion, along with Zach Kline, who is also expected to transfer t Oregon St., after leaving Califorina, and the quarterbacks already on the roster, Brent Vander Veen and Kyle Kempt.

Del Rio, who did not play this past season for Alabama, will have to sit out a year, but can participate in practices. He can become eligible in 2015, and will have 3 years of eligibility left.
