Oregon State Football Recruiting Roundup: April 2017

Let’s take a look at some possible future additions to Gary Andersen’s squad.

Spring football is all wrapped up for Oregon State and so is the majority of the 2017 recruiting class. There’s still offers on the table for a handful of uncommitted players though, so the Beavers have a chance to bolster the team further for next year. While we’re looking ahead, we can go ahead and talk about the guys who have singed on for the 2018 class and beyond and the ones who look promising for a commitment for OSU.

Class of 2017

Offense:

Spencer Webb, TE: The two/three star has offers on the table from 15 schools, however 24/7 Sports lists the Beavs and the Ducks as his top two choices. At 6’5” and 235 pounds, he could be a steal. The Beavers did sign two other tight ends for this class last month though, so I can see how that would be a deterrent.

Rajan Cunningham, RB: A three star all purpose back from Dallas, Cunningham is still undecided. There’s plenty of good running backs already in OSU’s stable so this is one of the ones that I’d be pretty surprised about if he signed.

Meanwhile at the receiver spot, there’s a group of four uncommitted players who still have offers on the table from OSU: Victor Bates, Wallace Corker, Tyler Asemota, and Trey Davis.

Class of 2018

Offense:

Jerome Ford, RB: The #12 all purpose back in the class of 2018, Ford looks like he has the Beavs in his top three, along with Toledo and South Florida. Take a look at his Junior season highlights and see his ability to make plays catching passes out of the backfield.

Brevin White, QB: The #9 pro-style QB in his class recently had a visit to Corvallis this past week and it seems like things went well. He has an offer from the Beavs, but has plenty of time to decide and seems pretty high on the idea of Tennessee as of late from his Twitter. At least he’s good with the color orange, so we’re moving in the right direction with this one.

Steven Comstock, QB: The three star dual threat from Covina, California has just three offers so far, including one from OSU. The other two are from Idaho and Eastern Washington. We don’t know a lot about Comstock just yet, but he runs a 4.6 40 yard dash and he’s not afraid to throw the deep ball.

Jalen Patterson, RB: Patterson is a do it all guy from Belleview, Florida, who recently decommitted from Miami. He can come out of the back field, split out wide, and he’s not a bad corner. OSU is in his top five, but LSU and Tenessee are also in the mix.

Defense:

DeShon Wilson, CB: The three star corner from Hayward, California, committed to the Beavs about a month ago. We talked about his abilities a bit already, but we’ll take another excuse to watch his highlight tape.

Eddie Smith, CB: The three star cornerback from Louisiana was introduced to the Beavers by his god-brother and former Beav Treston Decoud. The coaching staff was blown away by the underrated defensive back’s tape and offered him soon after. Oregon State was the first Power 5 conference to offer him a scholarship but the two-way star is getting a lot of attention as of late. He currently holds 14 offers headed into his senior season and is likely to get an offer from LSU soon.

Jaquan Beaver, LB: The three star outside linebacker from Miami has been on the Beavers radar since early last year and received an offer pretty early into his high school career. The Beavs look like his top choice right now, but he’s also drawing a lot of interest from Kentucky and his hometown team, the Miami Hurricanes.

Isaac Hodgins, DT: Hodgins was the second official member of the 2018 recruiting class for Oregon State announcing his commitment just a few days after DeShon Wilson. Read more on what we think he’ll bring to the table here.

Josiah Bradley, S: The three star safety from Scottsdale seems like something of a hot commodity in the Pac-12. He has seven early offers on the table, five of which are from Pac-12 schools. Bradley is the number three recruit in the state of Arizona and has said that the offers that stick out to him the most so far are OSU and Utah.

Here’s a few more names to keep an eye on for the class of 2018: Emoryie Edwards, Mason Starling, Miles Owens, Donovan Laie, Maurice Gaines
