Athlon Sports released their projections of what they think the 2020 Pac-12 All-Conference teams will look like and Oregon State landed six players on the four-deep depth charts, including running back Jermar Jefferson and linebacker Hamilcar Rashed Jr., who both graced the first-team.
Jefferson, a 2018 freshman All-American, tallied 142 carries for 685 yards and 8 touchdowns last season, as he split time out of the back-field with starter Artavis Pierce. The rising junior currently sits 12th on the Beavers all-time rushing list with 2,065 career rushing yards.
Rashed Jr., who yesterday was named to the 2020 Lott IMPACT Trophy Award watch list, finished with 62 tackles, 22.5 tackles for loss, 14 sacks and 2 forced fumbles in 2019, en route to an All-Pac-12 second-team selection.
Offensive lineman Brandon Kipper, who was named a reserve on our Oregon State all-decade team despite only entering his redshirt junior season, was selected to the third-team. Kipper started all 12 games in 2019, earning All-Pac-12 Honorable Mention honors. Wide receiver Trevon Bradford and a duo of linebackers in Omar Speights and Avery Roberts rounded out Oregon State’s selections, all landing on the fourth-team.
Notably, Beavers quarterback Tristan Gebbia was not selected to any of the teams, even as he’s set to debut as a full-time starter for the program this fall. Also absent were Oregon State’s special teams players, which includes kickers, punters and special team returners.
