- After pledging to the Beavers back in early-May, three-star 2018 linebacker Halid Djibril has decided to re-open his recruitment and officially de-committed from Oregon State on Tuesday morning. BeaversEdge gives a bit more insight into the twist of recruiting news, that may have been influenced by his recent trip to USC and his previous offers from Vanderbilt and Utah.
- To add to Oregon State’s recruiting troubles on Tuesday, our buddies over at Vanquish The Foe were on top of former Beavers signee Christian Folau switching his commitment to BYU, as an immediately eligible player. Folau signed with Oregon State back in 2015, as the 14th best inside linebacker in the class, but has been on his LDS mission for the last two years. Former Beavers coach and current Cougars defensive coordinator Ilaisa Tuiaki is believed to have played a crucial role in BYU landing Folau.
- After losing two recruits on Tuesday, head coach Gary Andersen was excited to hear another player commit to the program, when last night, 6’ 6”, 252-pound defensive lineman Andy Koch pledged to continue his football career at Oregon State. A three-star recruit out of Southern California, Koch chose the Beavers over the likes of Arizona, BYU, Colorado, Harvard, Washington State, among others.
- It seems as though all the football recruiting dust waited to settle until the Beavers baseball team took care of their business in their first two games in Omaha, since on Tuesday, three-star in-state talent Teagan Quitoriano announced to the Oregonian that his college decision would come down to either Oregon or Oregon State. A tight end/defensive end hybrid for the 2018 class, the 6’ 6” 245-pound prospect from Sprague High School could be one of those pivotal recruiting battles that show who has the most pull out of the Beavers and Ducks for in-state talent.
- Oregon State’s baseball team may have a few days off until they take the field again but that didn’t stop them from enjoying their Omaha trip, with a special visit to Boys Town, a non-profit organization in the area that works with at-risk youth. This piece by the Corvallis Gazette-Times documents their trip and what both the players and children in the program may have learned from the unique experience.
- To add to the hectic nature of Tuesday, the Oregon State basketball team also made some headlines, by scheduling a two-year series with Saint Louis. The first game, which will take place this upcoming season, will be hosted at the Moda Center in Portland, with a return game in Saint Louis for next season. No official dates or times have been released for the contests, as of yet.
