Cory Hall and the Oregon State Beavers have been on fire, hitting the recruiting trail for the last week and have added four verbal commitments since October 29th. The "#HALLIn" movement on Twitter from current players, recruits, and fans has gained a lot of popularity in a short period of time. Recruits have started to take notice of the changes happening in Corvallis since Coach Hall took over as interim head coach on October 9th after Gary Andersen's departure. On Sunday evening, Jake Levengood, a 6'4 260-pound 247Sports three-star offensive lineman from Vacaville High School, added his name to the list of recruits who are indeed #HALLIn, as he committed to OSU becoming Coach Hall's fifth commit since he took over as interim head coach.

OSU was Levengood's first D1 offer on June 17th and since that time has added offers from Arizona, Nevada, Sacramento State, San Jose State, and Washington State. Levengood also received interest from Utah and Washington.
Levengood will need to add some weight to his 6'4 frame to get physically prepared for the battles he will face in the trenches against the rest of the PAC-12, but with time to develop during a potential redshirt freshman year and the right coaching, Jake has the ability to turn into a valuable piece to Oregon State's offensive line for years to come.
Levengood’s commitment brings Oregon State's total number of commits for the class of 2018 to 13 and is the second offensive lineman to commit as West Linn's (Portland, OR) Keishon Dawkins previously committed to the Beavers on October 30th.
