Can Beavs nab 2 of West's best OGs?

IF OREGON STATE can gain a commitment from Kammy Delp following his official visit to Corvallis this weekend, they'll have pulled off an offensive guard recruiting coup.

Kammy Delp pledging the Beavs would give Oregon State two of the top 10 guards in the West.

Drew Clarkson, who is rated No. 9 in the West by on their list of offensive guards, has long been on board with the Beavs.

Delp is rated No. 4 on's list.

Delp, says, can play on either side of the ball at the college level but his frame and strength likely augur for him to line up on offense.

Delp checks in at 6-3, 320 pounds and moves well for his size. He finishes blocks and is particularly adept at run blocking, a facet of the game Mike Riley would dearly like to get back to after the 2013 pass-happy campaign.

Things to work on? Sure, Delp can be better in his short area quickness and he needs to become more mobile. But he was also Semper Fidelis All-America for a reason.

Meanwhile, Clarkson in the view of BF.C is a reAL gem. It's hard to say any guy rated three stars is underrated but Clarkson might just be that guy.

He spurned other Pac-12 schools' advances over the past few months, wasn't interested in a free trip or anything other than playing for the Beavs. That's our kind of guy.

Plus, he is one nasty o-lineman, the kind of guy who could develop into a top-notch Pac-12 lineman.

BeavFans should be thrilled with Clarkson. If Delp were to come on board, that would be the icing on the offensive guard cake.
