  • Damir Collins, one of the top running back prospects in the 2021 class, has announced via Twitter what day he will make his college commitment, which will be just ten days from today on June 17th. Collins is from Jefferson High School in Portland and will be deciding between the likes of California, Maryland, Ole Miss and Oregon State. According to 247 Sports, Collins is the 2nd-best all-purpose back in the 2021 class, trailing only Clemson commit Will Shipley.

  • In some not so positive news related to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Oregon State athletic department, the school has announced budget-reducing measures for the next fiscal year. These changes include budget reductions, salary reductions, hiring and salary freezes and worst of all, a reduction of 23 positions within the department “via non renewals/layoffs, retirement, and selective hiring freeze on open positions.”
