Whittley also held offers from a number of other FBS schools, but Oregon State gives him the opportunity to step into immediate playing time. Jordan Whittley headlines a number of newcomers on the defensive line including: Addison Gumbs, Evan Bennett, Omar Speights, Kelsen Hennessy, Cory Stover and Simon Sandberg.
Look for Jordan Whittley to immediately fill the void left by graduated senior Kalani Vakameilalo. Elu Aydon and Jordan Whittley will have the responsibility to clogging up running games and freeing up the Oregon State linebackers to make plays. Beaver nation give Jordan Whittley a warm welcome as he makes his signing official!
