The final days of August brought hope for the Oregon State football program, when Nebraska quarterback Tristan Gebbia announced his decision to transfer into the Beavers program.

The heart of September seems to be bringing more of the same good vibes for the Beavers’ future in Corvallis.

As first reported by Beaver Blitz and confirmed by multiple other outlets including the Oregonian, Oklahoma sophomore defensive end Addison Gumbs has announced his decision to transfer to Oregon State and is already currently enrolled as a student at the school. Gumbs is expected to be eligible to play in the fall of 2019 for the Beavers.

A former U.S. Army All-American and four-star prospect, Gumbs originally committed to the Sooners out of high school, over the likes of Louisville, Nebraska, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas A&M, USC and Washington. As a 6’ 3”, 255-pound edge rusher, Gumbs played sparingly for Oklahoma during his rookie season but was projected to start on the defensive line before suffering a season-ending knee injury.

Now settling into his new home in Corvallis, Gumbs will use the 2018 campaign to get healthy and work on becoming one of the leaders of the Beavers defense heading into 2019.
