- According to a report from Yahoo Sports’ Shams Charania and confirmed by the Oregonian, former Oregon State forward Drew Eubanks will play this summer with the San Antonio Spurs. Eubanks, who went undrafted at Thursday night’s NBA Draft after foregoing his final year of collegiate eligibility, averaged 13.2 points and 6.8 rebounds per game last season with the Beavers.

- Lost in the long and strange career of Chad Johnson-Ochocinco-Johnson is that at one point in the memorable receiver’s past, Johnson was actually a stand-out talent on the football field at Oregon State. Which makes the question posed by Christian D’Andrea and Adam Stites of SB Nation quite intriguing to all of those out there in Beaver Nation, when they questioned who would you rather have: Chad Johnson or Terrell Owens?
- Pacific Takes, SB Nation’s Pac-12 site, ranked the league’s best quarterbacks and backfield combinations and to say the least, the Beavers didn’t fare too well. In terms of quarterbacks, large gunslinger Jake Luton was ranked only in front of Washington State’s Trey Tinsley Jr., while the combination of Luton and his running back duo were selected as the worst trio in the “Conference of Champions”. On the bright side, Pacific Takes did predict Oregon State’s Artavis Pierce Jr. to be one of the league’s breakout stars this season.
- And finally, focusing on more Oregon State alums, New York Yankees’ outfielder Jacob Ellsbury says that he “plans to play in 2018”, after dealing with a multitude of injuries all-season long. While it’s tough to know how soon or how exactly Ellsbury’s return would fit into the mix with the team, he is in the fifth year of a $153 million dollar contract, which may persuade the team to either play or try to move him.
