Oregon State redshirt senior RB Thomas Tyner will see reps with the first- and second-team offense during August camp.

Tyner (5'11/201) retired due to shoulder injuries in the winter of 2016, but after a year off, he decided to give it one more shot when he transferred to Oregon State as a graduate back in May. He made it through summer strength-and-conditioning work without any physical setbacks and will be battling it out with Artavis Pierce and TCU RB transfer Trevorris Johnson for the right to back up Ryan Nall during the coming season. The Beavers are still coming together as an overall football team, but they are absolutely loaded at running back if all their various pieces can stay healthy.

Oregon State redshirt sophomore CB Jay Irvine placed at No. 23 on Bruce Feldman's "Freak List."

Irvine boasts a vertical of 43 inches and "also broad jumped 10’7" and squatted 500 pounds," according to Feldman. Irvine only played in four games last season and the coaching staff hinted at him spending time in the slot, but with Treston Decoud graduating to the NFL, Irvine could step into one of the starting outside corner spots.

Sports on Earth's Matt Brown writes that "the physicality and productivity of [Oregon State redshirt sophomore RB Ryan] Nall was a much-needed development for a team trying to climb out of the Pac-12 basement."

Nall (6'2/255) is one of our favorite backs for the coming season. He turned in 951 yards (6.5 YPC) and 13 touchdowns last season despite battling a leg injury which forced him to miss two games. ESPN Kyle Bonagura believes that he has the potential to lead the Pac-12 in rushing for the 2017 campaign.

The NCAA granted Oregon State redshirt sophomore TE Noah Togiai (ACL) a medical hardship waiver.

The 6-foot-4, 214-pounder's 2016 season ended in early September after he tore his ACL in OSU's second game. A former basketball player, Togiai had a 4-31-1 line in last year's opener. If healthy this fall, he holds some sleeper intrigue as a plus-athlete in an improving offense.

Oregon State senior WR Hunter Jarmon will forego the remainder of his collegiate eligibility to pursue a baseball career with the San Diego Padres.

Jarmon was not selected during the MLB amateur draft this week, but he latched on with the Padres as a free agent afterward. Said Beavers HC Gary Andersen, "We 100 percent support Hunter's decision to pursue this tremendous opportunity of a baseball career at this time in his life. He is a quality young man and we wish him the very best in pursuing this course." With the 5-foot-10, 201-pounder off to pursue a career on the diamond, the Beavers are going to be shifting things around in the receiving corp. Jonathan Villaman is locked in as the team's No. 1, but Jarmon had performed well in spring practice -- culminating with a 155-yard, two-touchdown performance in the spring game -- and was looking like he was gearing up to possibly play Robin to Villaman's Batman in 2017. Xavier Hawkins, Timmy Hernandez, Trevon Bradford, Andre Boldden and Isaiah Hodgins will all receive extra opportunities in August in Jarmon's absence.

Oregon State senior WR Hunter Jarmon "made strides" toward securing a starting job this spring according to the Portland Tribune.

He showed no ill-effects from the ankle injury that limited him to three games last year, wracking up 155 receiving yards and two touchdowns in the spring game. Jarmon could be the front-runner to start across from Jordan Villamin. The WR rotation could be rounded out by senior Xavier Hawkins, junior Timmy Hernandez, sophomores Trevon Bradford and Andre Bodden and true freshman Isaiah Hodgins.

Gina Mizell of The Oregonian reports that Oregon State hopes to redshirt sophomore QB Conor Blount.

The upstart Beavers suddenly have depth at multiple positions, creating opportunities like this one. On the QB depth chart, Blount is buried beneath Marcus McMaryion, Darell Garretson and hyped JUCO transfer Jake Luton. Blount completed 54.3 percent of his passes with a 0/2 TD/INT rate last year.

ESPN's Kyle Bonagura wrote that Oregon State redshirt sophomore RB Ryan Nall "might be the favorite" to lead the Pac-12 in rushing next season.

Nall's average rushing output of 95.1 yards last season trailed only Myles Gaskin and Christian McCaffrey. He finished out with 951 yards on the ground, good for sixth best in the conference. The 6-foot-2, 255-pounder did all of this while being hampered by a leg injury he initially sustained against Cal on October 8. That injury cost him two games. A 1,000-yard season in 2017 is well within reach if he can maintain his health.

Former Oregon redshirt senior RB Thomas Tyner (shoulder) transferred to Oregon State as a graduate.

Tyner announced his medical retirement from the sport in February 2016 following debilitating injuries to both of his shoulders. The former five-star prospect now wants to return to the field, and he hopes to do so for Oregon's archrival. The 5-foot-11, 201-pound Tyner, a speedster who once ran a 4.28-second forty, rushed for 1,284 yards and 14 touchdowns across two seasons with the Ducks. He hasn't played since 2014 and must be cleared by the NCAA. But if healthy and eligible, Tyner will make for a strong No. 2 change-of-pace back behind the thundering Ryan "Wrecking" Nall.

Oregon State HC Gary Andersen indicated that the team could use three quarterbacks in 2017 depending on specific in-game scenarios

Jake Luton -- who started the team's spring game -- looks to be in line for traditional starting duties. Beyond Luton, though, Riley remains intrigued by the athleticism of Darell Garretson and Marcus McMaryion (both of whom saw starts last season). "We have three guys, and it's a lot better than not having any," Andersen said. "We want to be able to get ourselves in a spot to find a quarterback that can make the game changing plays." Oregon State is coming off a 4-8 2016 season, but taking a closer look at that record, the Beavers were stuck with tight losses to Stanford, Utah and Washington State. They closed up shop with a victory over Oregon in the Civil War.

49ers signed Oregon State WR Victor Bolden.

Bolden (5’8/178) made 30 starts at wideout for the Beavers, leading the team in receptions in each of his final three years and compiling a career 167-1,849-7 (11.1 YPR) receiving line in addition to 93-731-3 (7.9 YPC) rushing. A true all-purpose dynamo, Bolden returned three career kickoffs for touchdowns and scored once on a punt. While his versatility is an obvious plus, Bolden is undersized even by NFL slot-receiver standards and ran a disappointing 4.54 at the Combine. Bolden will have to make his mark on special teams.
May 5 - 12:51 PM

Texans selected Oregon State S Treston Decoud with the No. 169 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Decoud (6’2/206) bounced from Chadron State to community college before spending his final two seasons at Oregon State, where he made 21 starts and collected 5.5 tackles for loss with two interceptions. The cousin of ex-Falcons FS Thomas Decoud, Treston earned national notice by holding Cal WR Chad Hansen to 16 yards on four receptions last October. (Hansen had 70 yards or more in all of his other games). Decoud offers Seahawks-cornerback-like size and extremely long arms (33"), but he has a scary concussion history, tested poorly before the draft, and will be a 24-year-old rookie. An efficient tackler, Decoud could be tried at safety.
Apr 29 - 3:15 PM

Falcons selected Oregon State T/G Sean Harlow with the No. 136 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Harlow (6’4/303) made 37 starts on the Oregon State's offensive line – his first 14 at right tackle and final 23 on the left side – and earned second-team All-Pac 12 in 2016 despite missing the first four games with a broken leg. PFF College charged Harlow with just one QB hit allowed last season. The son of former Patriots first-round pick Pat Harlow, Sean’s size, short arms (32"), and pedestrian athleticism make him best fit for the interior. He did log practice reps at center during his college career. Harlow’s likeliest NFL projection is as a versatile reserve, although he could become a lower-end starting guard or center.
Apr 29 - 1:42 PM

Oregon State T Dustin Stanton worked out for the Cincinnati Bengals.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline sees Stanton as a probable undrafted free agent. A former tight end who became three-year starter on the offensive line for Oregon State, Stanton has good size but struggles with speed rushers. He must clean up his footwork.
Apr 13 - 3:51 PM

TCU redshirt senior RB Trevorris Johnson transferred to Oregon State as a graduate.

"We are very excited to have someone of Trevorris' ability, character and focus join our program. He brings a level of maturity to our team on and off the field," said Oregon State HC Gary Andersen. With Ryan Nall already installed as starter, the 5-foot-11, 226-pound Johnson will be jostling with Artavis Pierce for backup duties come the start of August camp. He turned in 225 rushing yards and four touchdowns on 41 carries with the Horned Frogs this past season.
