With recruiting picking up steam and only three and a half months until signing day, the Beavers are looking to close strong on several recruits. Here is the latest version of the BeaverBlitz War Room.
QUARTERBACK (Need 2/Have 2)
Commits: Aidan Willard & Jake Luton
The Beavers have a solid commitment from Napa (Califorinia) Justin-Siena quarterback Aidan Willard. They will only take one quarterback in this class and are full.
RUNNING BACK: (Need 2/Have 2)
Commits: T.J. Green & Isaiah Miller
The Beavers are happy with their two running back commits. While Miller is still planning to take a visit to Syracuse, he seems solid with the Beavers.
OFFENSIVE LINE: (Need 5/Have 2)
Commits: Travis Mackay, Brock Wellsfry & Justin Sattelmaier
WIDE RECEIVER: (Need 5/Have 4)
Commits: Quantino Allen, Arex Flemings, Tyler Asemota & Kolby Taylor
The Beavers have a solid crew of receivers already committed, but they would love to add Calvin or Hodgins to the mix. Quantino Allen seems to be a bit of a wildcard at the moment. While he is committed to the Beavers, he is taking other visits and will most likely be a battle to the end for his signature.
TIGHT END: (Need 1/Have 0)
Both Pututau and Terrell plan to visit the Beavers later this year.
DEFENSIVE LINE: (Need 2/Have 1--Bowcut & Fauatea are mission bound)
Commits: Xavier Davis, Lorenzo Fauatea & Josh Bowcut
A big defensive tackle is needed in this class to fill the shoes of Noke Tago.
LINEBACKER: (Need 1/Have 1)
Commits: David Morris
After last year's haul at linebacker/defensive end, Morris is the guy the Beavers wanted and they landed him, that being said, the Beavers are still recruiting local ILB Daniel Green from Portland (OR) Madison.
DEFENSIVE BACK: (Need 5/Have 2)
Commits: Kaleb Hayes & Justin Gardner
Defensive back and offensive line are the two positions of need for the 2017 class. The Beavers are in good shape with JC targets Deante Fortenberry and Brian Cole, while also gaining traction with standout Keisean Nixon. Preps Tayari Venable and Jeffrey Manning have both visited and had their eyes opened. Venable and Watson went so far as to re-open their commitment after they visited OSU.
