Ronnie Audette, a 3 star Offensive and Defensive Lineman from Elk River High School in Elk River, Minnesota has signed his letter of intent with Oregon State. Audette had previously committed to North Dakota State, but after some late interest from Bowl Division schools, reopened his recruitment. He announced his commitment to Oregon State on January 29th, and signed his letter of intent today.

In addition to Oregon State and North Dakota State, Audette was also offered by Missouri, Navy, New Mexico, Northern Illinois, North Dakota, and South Dakota State.
Audette played Offensive Tackle and Nose Tackle at Elk River. While other schools were recruiting Audette for a role on offense, he’ll likely play defense for Oregon State. Defensive Coordinator Tim Tibesar and Defensive Line Coach Legi Suiaunoa were a big part of his recruitment process; both paid him a visit in his home recently while securing his commitment.
Check out some of Audette’s highlights below.
