2019 Depth Chart: Quarterbacks

Can Gebbia live up to the expectations?

Today we take an educated guess at what the depth chart will be for the QB’s comes fall.

  • Tristan Gebbia- Barring something unforeseen, the Nebraska transfer will have his name listed first on the QB depth chart come August 30th. A 4 star recruit from Calabasas California committed to play for Mike Riley in Lincoln. Riley was let go after his redshirt season and Scott Frost had a different vision for the offense. After failing to win the starting job Gebbia decided to head west and join Jonathan Smith in Corvallis.

  • Jake Luton- This is where things get a little interesting. Luton, who, when healthy, was the starter the past 2 seasons may just have another year of eligibilty if the NCAA decides to be nice. He will have an opportunity to compete with Gebbia for the starting job, but will likely be relegated to the role of an experienced backup.

  • Jack Colletto -Colletto started one game and saw time in a few others to mixed results. While he did not find a whole lot of success through the air, he did prove to be an effective goal line QB and touchdown vulture.

  • Aidan Willard- The life long Beav fan saw the field once this past season, going 0-1 passing and getting sacked for a 15 yard loss. Hopefully this is not an indication of things to come.

  • Nick Moore- The brother of OSU legend Matt Moore, has yet to see the field for the Beavs. Moore had to sit out this year after transferring from Eastern Washington over the summer.


While the depth is still somewhat questionable, the return of Luton is a huge boon to the depth chart. Talent wise Gebbia seems to have the inside track at the job, but Luton provides much need experience at #2 spot for a program who hasn’t had a QB start every game of the season since some guy named Mike Riley was calling the shots.
