With training camp starting and official offers going out, we’re entering one of the busiest times of the year for Oregon State Football. We just got our first big piece of news, with Wide Receiver Trevor Pope announcing his commitment to Oregon State.
Trevor Pope is a 6-1, 165 lb Wide Receiver out of Tracy High School in Tracy, California. He is rated at 3 stars by 247 sports, and also received offers from New Mexico, Fordham and San Jose State.
Head Coach Jonathan Smith gave the ‘bat-signal’ on Twitter just before Trevor Pope made his announcement. Pope already has a connection with Oregon State that may have swung his decision; he’s the nephew of Gary Payton. Pope joins a 2020 recruiting class that includes Wide Receiver Zeriah Beason out of Texas, and Tight End Tommy Spencer from Roseville, California, giving the Beavers a solid foundation for their future receiving corps.
In other news, Nick Daschel of the Oregonian reported that four Oregon State players will miss all or parts of fall camp. Keli’i Montibon, Mason Moran and Michael Alfieri will miss all of preseason camp with injuries; while Trevon Bradford will be limited at the start.
