For starters, Oregon State is in the market for offensive linemen this class. Tight ends, too.
"Offensive line and tight end come to mind right away," Mike Riley told BF.C when asked about the positions of greatest need for the Beavs.
OSU has 20 known offers out to players projected by Scout.com as college o-linemen and tight ends.
For the '12 class, defensive backfield recruiting was also on Riley's mind the day we spoke with him.
"You can never get enough corners and linebackers," he said.
With a junior and two sophomores on the roster, Riley said the Beavs will likely take one QB this class.
Oregon State doesn't figure to have room for the 25 maximum allowable this class, Riley said, but they don't look too far off from that, either.
Riley estimated the Beavs would have room for "somewhere in the 20-range" when Letter of Intent Day comes around in February.
"And we'll probably oversign by a couple," said Riley.
Riley said he's pleased with his kicking/punting game coming out of the spring. "It didn't (always) look terrific but Trevor Romain I thought had a great spring. And Johnny Hekker punted well -- where Johnny had to go was in consistency. If he can put it all together he can have a really, really great season," said Riley.
