Oregon State junior WR Seth Collins (undisclosed) is listed as "Out for duration" on the Beavers' opening depth chart for spring practice.

Barring a turnaround on the health front, it is looking like Collins will sit out spring practice altogether. While the depth chart does not list his specific ailment (or to be more accurate, just lists it as "Rehab"), he was hospitalized due to illness in November. It appears that that illness sapped a fair bit of strength and weight from the quarterback-turned-wideout. In early February, HC Gary Andersen said, "I don't know that whole time frame. It's really gonna be the communication of Seth, the docs and how they kind of handle it. I'll just kind of follow their lead."

Oregon State CB coach Cory Hall said that he expects junior CB Xavier Crawford's interceptions to "go way up" in 2017.

In an interview with The Oregonian, Hall spoke about Crawford and his potential at length. "I think he showed a lot of poise and he showed a lot of toughness last year. It's hard to play 12 games straight and not miss a rep," Hall said, adding that "[h]e's not a secret anymore." The 6-foot-1, 182-pounder missed all of three snaps this past season, playing in 926 of 929. During the campaign, he registered 70 tackles, a sack, an interception and a forced fumble. Hall believes he has next-level potential.

Oregon State senior WR Jordan Villamin (knee) will see limited action during spring practice.

Villamin was a star of Oregon State's spring game last April, as ESPN's Chantel Jennings wrote that he "stole the show" with a pair of touchdown grabs. He might not be able to perform those heroics this time around, as he is not yet up to full speed due to a knee issue. His progress on the health front should clarify as spring practice unfolds. The 6-foot-1, 235-pounder logged a 21-253-1 receiving line in eight games last season.

CBS Sports draft analyst Dane Brugler tagged Oregon State WR Victor Bolden as a surprise invite for the NFL Scouting Combine.

Brugler notes that Bolden "has speed to burn and should light up the 40-yard dash." Playing in an Oregon State offense which often struggled to move the ball through the air, the 5-foot-9, 172-pounder failed to crack 550 yards receiving in either of the past two seasons. The lack of production is understandable and shouldn't be held against him too much by NFL squads, but his lack of size figures to be a sticking point. He projects as a likely undrafted free agent this spring.

Former Wisconsin and USF redshirt junior S Austin Hudson transferred to Oregon State as a graduate.

A two-star prospect in Wisconsin’s 2014 recruiting class, Hudson transferred to USF after one season. He appeared in 11 games for the Bulls in 2016 after sitting out 2015. Hudson will graduate in May from USF, making him eligible to play immediately. He has two years of eligibility remaining.

Oregon State signed four-star JUCO DT Craig Evans.

He's coming over from Arizona Western after originally signing with Michigan State in 2014. At that time, Evans was one of the nation’s top defensive tackles. He played two seasons in East Lansing and appeared in 11 games during the 2015 College Football Playoff run. He left the Spartans last spring for "personal reasons." Defensive tackle is a need position for the Beavers, so expect to see Evans on the field early.

Oregon State signed four-star JUCO QB redshirt junior QB Jake Luton.

Luton spent one year at the JUCO level after announcing that he'd transfer from Idaho last June. The 6-foot-6, 209-pound pocket passer was escaping from his backup post to Matt Linehan and now hopes he's located a school with a starting gig available to compete for. "This is a good looking passer that will take some chances, but has physical tools to be a factor right away," ESPN noted in a scouting report. Luton must work on his decision making and release.

Oregon State signed four-star 2017 WR Isaiah Hodgins.

Very nice pull for the Beavers, here, particularly given that in-state rival Oregon was trying to bring Hodgins into the Duck family. Rivals ranks the 6-foot-3, 187-pounder as the No. 165 overall prospect in the 2017 class. He is a raw player in terms of his blocking and he is neither overtly physical nor overtly fast, but knows how to do work after the catch despite some of the deficiencies in his game.

Oregon State T Gavin Andrews accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.

Andrews this year proved that he was fully recovered from an ankle injury that cost him the entire 2015 season. He moved from right guard to center for the start of Pac-12 play. Andrews also started at tackle earlier in his career.

Oregon State hired Kansas WR coach Jason Phillips to serve in the same capacity.

"I'm very excited and feel fortunate to have this opportunity to join Coach Andersen, who is one of the greatest leaders in our profession," Phillips said in a statement. Prior to serving as Kansas' WR coach this past season, he had been on staff with SMU from 2011-2015. He has also spent time with Houston, Baylor and Texas State.

Oregon State HC Gary Andersen received a contract extension through the 2021 season.

"Extending Coach Andersen's contract reflects my belief that we have the coach in place who is capable of taking Beaver football to bowls and conference championships, and preparing our student-athletes to be champions in life beyond football," said school president Ed Ray. Andersen initially signed a six-year contract with the Beavers in 2014. While the team went just 4-8 this past season, they played competitively in multiple Pac-12 contests and even managed to kick Oregon while the Ducks were down via a 34-24 win in the Civil War to close the regular season.

Oregon State redshirt sophomore RB Ryan Nall rushed for 155 yards and four touchdowns on 31 carries in Saturday's 34-24 win over Oregon.

Nall has been limited by a leg injury for much of the second half of the season, but he was on an all-out roll in Saturday's Civil War showdown. He scored touchdowns in the first and third quarters, then chipped in with two more in the fourth quarter. The first of those fourth-quarter end zone trips, scored from six yards out, boosted Oregon State to a 28-24 advantage. The second merely served as an icer. This was Nall's fourth 100-yard game in 2016. He finishes out the campaign having rushed for 951 yards and 13 touchdowns in 10 games.

Oregon State senior WR Victor Bolden is listed as probable for Saturday's matchup versus Oregon.

Though his injury remains undisclosed, we know when it occurred. Bolden left Saturday's game against Arizona following a big hit on a punt return. HC Gary Andersen has sounded optimistic about Bolden's prognosis, however, so we'd anticipate his return. Bolden owns a 43-528-2 line this year.

Oregon State sophomore WR Seth Collins (illness) won’t play against Oregon in Saturday’s Civil War.

Collins, hospitalized Monday with an undisclosed illness, is in good condition. Despite that, he's in no shape to return to the field this weekend against Oregon. Collins has 36 receptions for 418 receiving yards.
Wed, Nov 23, 2016 02:21:00 PM

Oregon State redshirt sophomore RB Ryan Nall (leg) participated in Wednesday's practice while wearing a non-contact jersey.

Nall missed last weekend's game against UCLA due to a nagging leg injury initially suffered in a win over Cal on October 8. Since sustaining that injury, the 6-foot-2, 255-pounder has been forced to sit out two of Oregon State's last four games. While it is a good sign that he was participating in practice (with first-team reps) on Wednesday, he shouldn't be considered a given for Saturday's 2-8 v. 2-8 showdown with Arizona -- particularly with the slowness of his recovery over the last month-plus.
