Andy Koch Commits to Oregon State Football

The Beavers land a long and athletic DE

NCAA Football: Oregon State at Washington State James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

Andy Koch is a 6-foot-6, 252-pound defensive lineman from Southern California (Corona). The 3-star recruit according to 24/7 sports holds offers from BYU, Washington State, Arizona, Colorado, Harvard and a few other schools.

Andy Koch is a long, athletic defensive end that reminds me of Joah Robinett who recently transferred away from Oregon State, but is a little more willing to mix it up at the line of scrimmage.

According to OregonLive’s Andrew Nemec, Andy Koch is a self-proclaimed run-stopper who has dedicated himself to improving his pass-rushing abilities. The three star recruit is just beginning to tap into his potential as he has all the physical tools to be a dominant defensive end.

This past spring, Scout.com named Koch one of the top ten surprises during The Opening in Oakland. According to Scout, Andy Koch is “Long and lean, Koch clocked a 4.2 shuttle and showed quickness off the ball. Has a frame to easily add 25-30 pounds without sacrificing his quickness.”

Earlier today 3-star safety, Halid Djibril, decommitted from Oregon State. His announcement came on the heels of receiving an offer from USC. With the news from Djibril and now Koch, Oregon State’s 2018 recruiting class remains at five players: Andy Koch joins Jake Dukart(QB), Spencer Petras (QB), Isaac Hodgins (DT), DeShon Wilson (CB).
