Justin Sattelmaier is an offensive lineman out of Palomar CC in California and a bounce-back from Western Oregon University. He signed with Oregon State at the early signing day in December and is expected to arrive in Corvallis later this spring. Listed at 6’7” and 310 pounds, Sattelmaier was rated as a 3* tackle by Scout and a member of the JUCO Top 100. This past season, he was recognized with 1st team All-National Southern Conference honors at left tackle. He was also a two-sport star in high school as he also wrestled.
LEAD OSU RECRUITER:
Kevin Clune – Area
TJ Woods -- Position
OSU was Sattelmaier’s 1st offer back in October and he jumped on the opportunity to return to the Willamette Valley, committing a week after receiving the offer. At the time of his commitment, he was also hearing San Diego State and Purdue. The Beavers had actually been in touch with Justin since earlier this spring and as they evaluated their in-season needs for the 2017 class, he was one of the 1st JUCO O-linemen to receive an offer.
WHY OREGON STATE:
“I chose OSU for the family atmosphere and the ability to make an immediate impact.”
Long armed and has a strong punch… Drives well on run plays... Might have trouble at LT with speed edge rushers. Uses his hands well in keeping pass rushers off of his body however.. Would like to see him play with a bit more tenacity in finishing off blocks. Recruited to play LT for Beavs but might be better suited for an inside guard position.
INSIDE THE COMMITMENT:
Sattelmaier is no stranger to the Willamette Valley. As a senior at Temecula Valley High School, he signed with WOU in 2015, where he spent his redshirt freshmen season and fell in love with the area. After his redshirt year though, he decided to transfer to Palomar Community College with the hopes of getting an opportunity to play for a D-1 program. He felt that he was under-recruited out of high school as he missed most of his senior year due to injury. Despite leaving Oregon to head to California, Oregon State was always a program that he wanted to hear from. When they offered it was hard for him to pass up the opportunity.
