Kyle Peko hasn’t played in a football game since late 2012, two years ago.
And that was a junior college game. The picture above is when he was on an official visit in November of 2012.
So yeah, it's been a while.
If Peko is called upon against Utah, now that Jalen Grimble and Noke Tago were both knocked out if the USC game with knee injuries, it would be asking a lot to expect him to start tossing around Pac-12 offensive linemen from the get-go.
Beaver fans shouldn't be expecting the second-coming of Stephen Paea.
No one should expect him to get run over either, it’s just that the next time Peko plays, that will be his first game against Pac-12 level competition.
The Beaver coaches seem to think he’s going to get a favorable grade on his class that ended Tuesday, which would thereby make him eligible …
Peko ran with the No. 1 d-line in Thursday’s practice according to the Oregonian.
By the way, when the Beavs went to their dime package, the three-man defensive line was Obum Gwacham, Brandon Bennett and Lavonte Barnett, the Oregonian reported on Thursday’s session.
Offensive linemen Gavin Andrews (ankle) remained out, as did Isaac Seumalo (foot). It would seem to be getting very close, if not already past, the time that Seumalo would go the redshirting route.
Oregon State will practice on Saturday night under the lights tomorrow.
Expectations for Peko should be reasonable
