Oregon State has added a Linebacker with an Oregon State pedigree, as Jason “Junior” Walling signed his letter of intent today.

Walling is the son of Jason Walling Sr., who played for the Beavers back in the nineties. Walling, 6’ 1” and 231 pounds, attends McNary High School in Keizer, Oregon. In addition to Oregon State, he was offered by Air Force, Army, Brown and Columbia. If you’re surprised by the Ivy League offers, don’t be; Walling has a 4.0 GPA and an impressive set of academic credentials.
On defense, Walling is flexible. He can play as a down OLB on pass rushing plays, or an upright ILB to stop the run. He also played Running Back at McNary, but will most likely stick to defense with the Beavers. 247sports has him rated as a three star prospect, and the 31st best ILB in the country. Check out his highlights below.
