Full Oregon State Rankings

Prospect with the best Spring/Summer:
Everyone knew Portland (Ore.) Jesuit guard Doug Brenner was versatile, but his versatility was a weakness coming into the spring. He had no clear answer as to where he would play in college. After a couple camps it was clear the athlete who has played nearly every position for Jesuit had found a home as an interior lineman. Brenner is on the shorter side, but should make up for it with his exceptional strength and athleticism. Brenner landed the Oregon offer he had been waiting for last week, and committed just days later.

Prospect poised to move up rankings:
Tight end Mike Ralston made the move from Portland (Ore.) Jesuit to Eugene (Ore.) Sheldon this season. Ralston has all the physical tools and passes the eye test as well as any prospect in the state. If he can put it all together on the field, he will definitely be a player that could rise in the rankings.

Prospect that will put up big numbers this fall:
This is almost cheating, considering Beaverton (Ore.) Aloha running back Thomas Tyner put up five touchdowns in just one half of his first game. If Tyner can stay healthy throughout the season, he will put up some massive numbers. It could also serve as a little foreshadowing for his upcoming time in Eugene.

Biggest sleeper prospect in state:
Central Point (Ore.) Crater linebackers Derrick Turituri and R.J. Morgan are completely under the radar. The Arizona commits didn't appear at many camps this fall and don't receive as much coverage as prospects in the Portland or Eugene area. Rich Rod saw enough from them to offer early in the spring and it will be interesting to see if local recruiting picks up during their season.
