With the 2018 football season done, there were a few things to get Oregon State Beavers fans excited about 2019. Pretty much all of those things were on the offensive side of the ball. After Jermar Jefferson’s big year and Artavis Pierce added some nice touches as well, the running game isn’t a huge concern. But what about the passing game?
Conor Blount, who saw time in nine game for the Beavs, decided to transfer at the end of the season and will almost surely find a great situation somewhere in college football. So that leaves three likely candidates for the starting job: Jake Luton, Tristan Gebbia, and Jack Colletto. Which do you think will get the starting nod when the time comes?
Jake Luton: The senior QB played well for the Beavs when he wasn’t dealing with a string of unfortunate injuries. He finished 2018 with 1660 passing yards with 10 touchdowns, four interceptions and a 62.5 completion percentage. Luton has been hurt so much his two years at Oregon State that the Beavs are trying to get him an extra year of eligibility through the NCAA. If that works out, he’ll contend for the starting job.
Tristan Gebbia: The transfer from Nebraska hasn’t played a college game yet, but that hasn’t stopped the former four-star high school prospect from generating a lot of buzz. He threw for 13,109 yards and 141 touchdowns in his high school career in Calabasas, California.
Jack Colletto: The rising junior had some solid moments under center in 2018. He completed 22 of 46 passes for 194 yards. He had no passing touchdowns but managed to run five in.
The Beavs open the 2019 season on Friday, August 30th against the Oklahoma State Cowboys in Corvallis.
