ESPN's Erik McKinney notes that Oregon State three-star WR Trevon Bradford is "an unheralded recruit who can provide an instant spark on offense and special teams."

McKinney floats the name of Utah freshman WR Britain Covey as a possible parallel for Bradford. Covey was similarly under-recruited, but came on to catch 43 passes for 519 yards and four touchdowns in 2015. Oregon State won just two games last season and if the 5-foot-11, 175-pound Bradford can hang in spring practice and August camp, there should be opportunities here.

Oregon State freshman TE Noah Togiai indicated that he will leave the basketball team to focus exclusively on football.

Togiai announced his choice on Twitter, writing (in part), "It was my decision in the end and [basketball HC Wayne Tinkle] DID NOT make me choose one sport." The 6-foot-4, 214-pound freshman logged 10 catches for 73 yards and a touchdown over six games during the 2015 campaign.

Oregon State signed four-star S Shurod Thompson.

Oregon State doesn't quite have the punch to go swing-for-swing with the big boys in the Pac-12 and finished with the No. 41 recruiting class in the country, per Rivals. They did manage to corral Thompson, though, who checks into the Rivals250 at No. 148. ESPN 300's scouting report notes that one of the 6-foot-1, 191-pound safety already displays strong read-and-recognition skills. They caution that he's not adept in man-to-man coverage at this point, though, and that he'll need to work to improve his overall speed.

Construction at Oregon State's Reser Stadium inadvertently revealed what are believed to be bones of a mammoth.

Beautiful. The discovery was made on Monday, as a crew worked on expanding the Valley Football Center at the stadium's north end. The site's intended to eventually house the Beaver locker room. OSU spokesman Steve Clark said, "We believe we have an intact femur from a mammoth. There also appear to be bones from other species, including possibly a bison and a camel." A university professor told Clark that after an examination of the bones, they're believed to be at least 10,000 years old. No word as to whether Oregon will now rip apart their stadium to search for dinosaurs in an attempt to one-up their in-state rivals in a sort of modern day reenactment of the 1800's Bone Wars between Edward Cope and O.C. Marsh.

Oregon State DT Kyle Peko accepted an invite to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

A JUCO transfer, Peko sat out the 2014 campaign after transferring to Oregon State. Silly transfer rules over and done with, the 6-foot-1, 317-pounder started all 12 games this past season, racking up 45 tackles (4.5 for loss), two sacks and two passes defended. For his work, he received a Pac-12 honorable mention at the end of the season.

TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline describes Oregon State redshirt junior Isaac Seumalo as a "good lineman with an injury history."

The 6-foot-5, 298-pounder had a solid year, considering he missed the entire 2014 season. Seumalo broke his foot in the 2013 Hawaii Bowl, and the injury required two surgeries. Prior to 2014, the Oregon State prospect started 25 games, with 23 starts at center and two at right tackle. Seumalo started at both right guard and left tackle for the Beavers this season, earning all-Pac-12 first-team honors.

Oregon State redshirt junior Isaac Seumalo's sister posted the OL will enter the 2016 NFL Draft.

This confirms the report Josh Norris posted over the weekend. Seumalo missed the entire 2014 season due to a foot injury, but has plenty of starting experience at both guard and tackle. That type of anchor utility lineman is very valuable on an NFL roster.
Jan 5 - 12:32 PM

Oregon State redshirt junior OL Isaac Seumalo is leaning towards declaring for the 2016 NFL Draft, according to Josh Norris.

Seumalo is in his fourth year but technically a redshirt junior after missing the entire 2014 season. Seumalo started 25 times prior to the 2014 season, 23 at center and two at right tackle. he has played plenty of guard this season, and at a high level. Many west coast scouts like what they have seen.
Jan 4 - 9:43 AM

Oregon State redshirt senior RB Storm Barrs-Woods accepted an invite to the East-West Shrine Game.

Barrs-Woods has suffered through an injury-plagued final campaign with the Beavers. He's reached double-digit carries only once since Week 5 and missed last week's loss to Oregon. Since the 2-12 squad is home for the holidays, hopefully he can heal up in time for the all-star circuit.

Oregon State redshirt freshman RB Ryan Nall rushed for 174 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries in Friday's 52-42 loss to Oregon.

Nall had just 281 rushing yards to his name entering play on Friday. He added to that considerably with his big day against the Ducks. The big (6-foot-2, 255-pound) freshman back rumbled his way to a shiny 9.2 YPC average against an Oregon defense that simply had no answer for his legwork. His 66-yard touchdown run with 7:05 remaining in the contest drew Oregon State to within 45-42, but the Beavers wouldn't score again. With the defeat, Oregon State closed out the 2015 campaign with nine consecutive losses. This after winning two of their first three games. Tough times in Corvallis.

Oregon State redshirt freshman WR Datrin Guyton has been dismissed from the team.

According to a released statement, Guyton was dismissed due to a "violation of athletic department and team rules as it relates to the expectations of a student-athlete." The 6-foot-3, 203-pound redshirt freshman exits stage left having caught 14 passes for 178 yards over the course of eight contests completed. The Dallas Morning news rated him as a Top-100 prospect in the state of Texas out of high school. While this is a relatively minor blow to the program, Oregon State's in all sorts of disarray, having just lost 41-0 to UCLA.

Oregon State redshirt senior RB Storm Barrs-Woods surpassed the 2,500 yard mark against Arizona on Saturday.

With 2,505 career yards, Barrs-Woods is 48 away from hopping Dave Schilling to move into No. 5 on OSU's all-time list. He probably won't get higher than that because Steven Jackson sits at No. 4 with 3,625 yards. Trivia time, kiddies. Who is the Beavers' all-time leading rusher? Yvenson Bernard? No. He's No. 3. Jacquizz Rodgers? He'd be No. 2. The correct answer is Ken Simonton, who slapped down 5,044. Barrs-Woods has 322 yards and a touchdown on 56 carries (5.8 yards per carry) this year.

Oregon State HC Gary Andersen indicated that he expects Arizona to come out with a strong effort on Saturday.

Said Andersen, "That's a program that's used to being in the hunt for championships and playing to win titles and playing to win bowl games. So I'm sure they're right where they need to be and they're excited about getting ready for this next game." That next game, of course, coming against Andersen's Beaver squad on Saturday. The Wildcats are reeling right now, having lost by significant margins to UCLA and Stanford in each of the last two weeks. Oregon State's allowing 178 yards rushing per game and 153 yards passing.
Mon, Oct 5, 2015 09:19:00 PM

Oregon State sophomore WR Jordan Villamin posted a nice game in Friday's 42-24 loss to Stanford, catching seven passes for 138 yards and a touchdown.

Villamin had yet to best 70 receiving yards in a contest entering Friday's showdown with Stanford, but he broke through that mark and then some with a nice 138-yard evening. 40 of the 138 yards came on a fourth quarter touchdown pass from QB Seth Collins that momentarily cut the Cardinal lead to 35-24. The Beavers would be unable to push another score on the board before contest's end, though. For the season, the 6-foot-5, 231-pound target has accumulated 17 catches for 279 yards and three touchdowns.

TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline pegs both of Oregon State's underclass starting offensive tackles (Dustin Stanton and Sean Harlow) as NFL prospects and tells readers to "to keep an eye on" both.

Harlow, the son of former first round pick Pat Harlow, earned a seventh-round grade. Stanton, meanwhile, was called a sixth-rounder by Pauline. "In my opinion Stanton’s a little more rounded and definitely stronger," he wrote.
