Four-star wide receiver Zeriah Beason committed to Oregon State on Tuesday. According to The Oregonian’s Andrew Nemec, it is the first four-star commitment the program has had in 888 days, via Rivals.

The 6-foot 180-pound receiver from Dallas, Texas is listed as the class of 2020’s 54th best wide receiver and 37th best player out of Texas according to Rivals.

Steven Lassan of Athlon sports projected five Oregon State football players to make an All-Pac-12 team next season, the highest projection being running back Jermar Jefferson on second-team offense. Lassan also has wide receiver Isaiah Hodgins and offensive lineman Gus Lavaka making third-team offense while defensive lineman Elu Aydon and safety Jalen Moore grab fourth-team defense honors.

Oregon State baseball has a few players up for awards. Star catcher Adley Rutschman was nominated for the Golden Spikes Award, which is given to the top amateur baseball player in the country, as well as the Buster Posey Catcher of the Year Award and the Dick Howser Trophy.

Pitcher Bryce Fehmel is also up for the Senior CLASS Award, which is given to NCAA Division I senior student-athletes who have been exceptional in four areas: community, classroom, character and competition. Fehmel currently has 8.7 percent of the votes.

Oregon State’s men’s rowing team will race at the IRA Championships for the seventh year in a row after finishing fourth at the Pac-12 Championships last weekend and earning an at-large bid. The Beavers are ranked 17th in the nation and will race at Lake Natoma in Gold River, California next weekend May 31-June 2.

Former Oregon State pitcher and current Detroit Tigers player Matthew Boyd is doing some good in his community, recently hosting a charity fundraiser in an effort to fight sex trafficking. Boyd’s nonprofit is called Kingdom Home and has the goal of raising $250,000.

Oregon-based freelance writer Bob Lundeberg tweeted out yesterday that Oregon State pitcher Mitchell Verburg plans to address media before Thursday’s game. The speculation is that it is not good news. Verburg has been dealing with a right arm injury since their April 27 marathon game against Washington State.
