6’5” Tight End Jack Velling announced his decision to attend Oregon State earlier today.
Velling, who attends Seattle Prep in Seattle, Washington, was rated as a three star prospect by 247sports and had a competitive recruitment. In addition to Oregon State, Velling also received offers from Michigan, Utah, Arizona State and Air Force.
Velling is just the latest pickup in what has turned into a very hot summer for Beavers recruiting, especially for the offensive line. Just last week the Beavers picked up a commitment from OT Luka Vincic, joining Center Dylan Lopez and OT Jacob Strand. Oregon State also picked up a very good looking Wide Receiver in Cole Prussia back in June. Velling looks like he’ll be a great blocker, but also has the pass catching skills you’d expect from a top tight end.
Oregon State’s recruiting continues to look strong, and it doesn’t seem like Coach Smith is slowing down as we head toward training camp.
