Name Stars 40 time Attributes Hype/Notes
Jon Ioane -- 6-5, 325 He's huge. I've seen him listed in some places at 325, some places as 340. Can't wait to see him play.
Castro Masaniai 4.86 6-3, 244 Out of Hawaii, Castro almost had his mind made up he wanted to be a Beaver before he came to Oregon.
Marcus Perry 4.9 6-1, 225 Also plays linebacker, but is an excellent snapper.
Rory Ross 4.83 6-2, 227 He looks really small to be an Offensive Lineman. Seems to me like he would be a more natural tight end.
Michael Cole - 6-7, 290 Offensive Tackle out of Lake Oswego High School that's coming to Oregon State from Los Altos Hills College.
Carl Sommer 4.6 6-4, 230 The pride of Wilsonville, OR, he played for the rivals of my hometown high school, Sherwood. He was a great high school player. He also played running back and Defensive Line for Wilsonville, but there's no way he could play DL at the college level.
Colby Prince 4.8 6-5, 220 Played for West Albany High School, who Sherwood also played this year. Almost won a state championship, but was stop short of the title by Corvallis, the team that knocked Sherwood out of the playoffs.
Jake Gelakoska 4.65 6-3, 206 Not much talk has been about Gelakoska during recruiting season, since he committed so early. He'll have to wait his turn behind some other talented quarterbacks like Canfield, Moaevo, and some other redshirts if he wants a starting role in the future.
Ryan McCants 4.6 6-2, 230 Had a outstanding senior season until he broke his leg, but was regarded as one of the best power running backs in the state of California.
Ahmed Mokhtar - 5-11, 196 High School standout at RB from Mater Dai HS in California (who Kevin Love and company just beat in beasketball in the Nike Extravaganza)
Darrell Catchings 4.4 6-1, 185 WR out of Escondido known for his speed and his hands. Just the kind of guy that usually fits into the Beavers offense, am I right?
James Rodgers 4.57 5-6, 164 Seems short, but the word on the street is that he's still a great wide receiver.
Brandon Wimberly -- -- 6-3, 185 Beavers just landed this playmaker tonight, out of Southern Cal. Don't know much about him yet, but hope to learn more.
Cameron Collins 4.65 6-2, 194 Regarded as one of the best high school athletes in SoCal, Collins finally chose the Beavers. He played both sides of the ball in High School, but will probably fit in best at DB for the Bears. He is ranked as the #32 HS DB by Rivals.
Brandon Hardin 4.62 6-2, 175 Only one of many Hawaiian players the Beavers recruited for '07. Brandon performed well in OSU's camp, which led to a offer from the Beavers, as well as Stanford, Hawaii, and Boise State.
Josh LaGrone 4.56 6-1, 170 Josh went All-State in Nevada his senior year, and had previously committed to Nevada before he changed his mind to come to Oregon State.
Lance Mitchell 4.6 6-2, 186 Talented prospect at safety, who plays physical and aggressive. He is apparently equally as good defending the pass and the run.
Anthony Watkins 4.65 6-1, 183 This speedy cornerback/safety chose the Beavers over Kentucky, which is closer to his family. He says: "They're a bowl-caliber team every year and they're in the Pac-10," Also, his brother will walk-on.
Kyle Bell 4.75 6-4, 220 One of three players the Beavers landed from Vissula, CA.
Jesse Fifita -- -- 6-3, 255 Injured his knee in the second game of his senior season, but his rehab is almost done. Should be another great addition to the team from Hawaii.
Kevin Frahm 4.6 6-3, 250 Regarded as the #2 recruit in Oregon behind  former teammate and fellow D-Linesman Myles Wade. (Central Catholic)
Latu Moala 4.76 6-2, 260 Junior College transfer out of the College of San Mateo.
Kevin Pankey -- 6-5, 255 Another player from Vissula, CA. Has a brother, Keith, who is being recruited by the Beavers as a linebacker.
Sioeli Nau 5.4 6-3, 310 Only recruit on the list from Utah, and just by looking at his numbers, you can tell he's huge. He's coming to OSU from Ephraim Snow College in Utah.
Will Darkins 4.73 6-2, 217 Brother of Andy Darkins, out of Lake Oswego HS. Helped LOHS get to the semifinals this year, before getting beat by Southridge, where recruit Kevin Frahm played. He's smart, too. Just like his brother.
David Paaluhi III 4.78 6-0, 215 The Beavers got David to commit over offers from Washington and Hawaii, which tells me that a lot of players that are also getting offers from Hawaii are picking Oregon State. I've seen several recruits that have done that.
Keith Pankey -- 6-2, 215 Brother Kevin is being recruited at Defensive Tackle.
