Christian Wallace, the former running back turned defensive back, who switched back to running back this off-season is immensely talented but has not been able to put it all together for the Beavers.

The former 4-star recruit was ranked as the No. 6 athlete in the country and among the top 150 overall prospects. Wallace played in four games for Oregon State and carried the ball twice, totaling 9 yards.

Justin Gardner recorded 2 solo tackles vs Southern Utah in 2018 as a redshirt freshman. He did not accumulate any more defensive statistics during the 2018 season though.


  • Former Oregon State quarterback, Conor Blount, has found a new home to continue his athletic and collegiate career. Conor Blount will be quarterbacking for Eastern Kentucky University next season, according to WYMT.com. Eastern Kentucky University competes at the FCS level and Blount will be eligible immediately.

EKU went 7-4 last season, despite dealing with considerable uncertainty at the quarterback position. They played four different QBs in 2018 (all of them underclassmen). Best of luck to Conor Blount and his new team!


  • Oregon State football added a couple of new commits for the 2019 class this week. Cam Sanders (younger brother of Tanner Sanders) and Nick Suing both committed to Oregon State this week.

  • Lastly, it’s Superbowl week and Beaver Nation should never forget that the two punters involved both originated from Oregon State. Rams punter Johnny Hekker and lesser known Patriots punter, Ryan Allen, were both in Corvallis back in 2009. Look out for the full break-down on how that position battle unfolded from the Ringer’s Rodger Sherman.
