Spring Recruiting Primer: Offensive Line

Offensive line is always a position of need in recruiting. Who are the Beavers looking at early in the 2018 cycle? We have you covered.

Spring evaluation period begins on April 15 and runs through May.  This is a chance for the coaches to hit the road and watch prospects perform on the field, both with their high school teammates and at camps and combines held throughout the country.  With the Beavers own spring practice in the books, the staff is able to be completely organized when they hit the road.  

Over this week, we will be listing the players with early offers and those to watch who could see their Oregon State interest increase.  Offensive line recruiting can be tricky to find the right combination of size and skill, and then out recruit everyone else who is trying to recruit the athlete. Oregon State graduates two offensive linemen after the season.

With the numbers the way they are, expect the Beavers to sign three to four offensive linemen in this recruiting class.

SENIOR JUNIOR SOPHOMORE RS FRESH. FRESHMAN

http://www.scout.com/player/203388-jacob-isaia/news?year=2017&s=182

Offers: BYU, Michigan State, Minnesota, Oregon State, UCLA, Utah, Virginia, WSU

BeaverBlitz Notes: Isaia visited Oregon State for the Beavers Junior Day and was impressed with what he saw.  He also added the Beavers offer on his visit.  He is a very well put together player who carries his 272 pounds very well and could easily get over the 300 pound mark. 

http://www.scout.com/player/206701-penei-sewell/news?year=2017&s=182

Offers: ASU, BYU, Florida, Fresno, LSU, Michigan, Ole Miss, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon State, Oregon, Tennessee, UCLA, USC, Utah, Washington

BeaverBlitz Notes: The four-star from St. George, Utah has quite the offer list.  Many analysts consider USC to hold the advantage in his recruitment.

http://www.scout.com/player/200878-dawson-jaramillo?s=182

Offers: Cal, Oregon State, Oregon, TCU, UCLA, Utah, Virginia, Washington

BeaverBlitz Notes: Local Lake Oswego, Oregon four-star who visited Oregon State several times during the Beavers spring camp.  Has stated that Oregon State is his leader at the moment.  Landing Jaramillo would be a big pick-up for the Beavers, not only in the in-state recruiting battles, but in helping to bulk up the offensive front.

Offers: ASU, Boise, Cal, Colorado, Iowa St, Louisville, Ole Miss, Oklahoma St, Oregon State, Oregon, San Diego St, TCU, UCLA, UNLV, Utah, Washington, Washington St.

BeaverBlitz Notes: Four-star Steven Jones has seen a lot of attention over the past few months, and while the Beavers are a longshot, he is looking at making a northwest trip this spring to see Washington, Oregon State and Oregon.

http://www.scout.com/player/208999-justin-dedich?s=182

Offers: Arizona, ASU, Colorado, Colorado St, Fresno, Iowa St, Kansas, Louisville, Ole Miss, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma St, Oregon State, San Diego St, TCU, UCLA, UNLV, USC, Utah, Washington, WSU

BeaverBlitz Notes: National prospect and number one ranked center in the country, Dedich has many options.  Longshot for Oregon State, but he has spoken favorably about the OSU coaches that he has met.

http://www.scout.com/player/204557-connor-galvin?s=182

Offers: Baylor, Colorado, Houston, Oregon State, Texas Tech, UCLA, 

BeaverBlitz Notes: Galvin has additional offers, but the six listed are the leaders early on.  Big 6-foot-6 tackle with the frame to be well over 300 pounds.  Stood out to analysts during the recent Opening Regionals in Houston.  Definitely should be on recruitniks boards.

http://www.scout.com/player/214504-miles-owens?s=182

Offers: Hawaii, Oregon State, San Jose St, UCLA

BeaverBlitz Notes: Owens is definitely one of the top offensive line prospects on the BeaverBlitz board. We spotted him during his recent visit on Junior Day and he is seriously a big athlete.  Listed at 6-foot-7, 310 pounds already, I would have a hard time arguing with those numbers.  The Beavers have done well recruiting the Bay Area, and Owens would add to that success.

http://www.scout.com/player/205480-m-j-ale?s=182

Offers: Arizona, Colorado St, Oregon State, Oregon, UCLA, Utah, 

BeaverBlitz Notes: Interesting that the two Washington schools have not offered Ale yet.  He is fairly new to football having grown up in Australia, he has only played two years of organized football.  Being 6-foot-5, 320 however makes learning the game a little easier.

http://www.scout.com/player/209436-matthew-cindric?s=182

Offers: Cal, Fresno, Hawaii, Oregon State, UCLA, Utah, WSU (+ handful of Ivy League schools)

BeaverBlitz Notes: Cindric was on hand during Oregon State's Junior Day and was excited to see Corvallis and meet the coaches.  He has no leaders at this point and is just starting to get out and visit schools outside of Washington.

http://www.scout.com/player/211588-blake-mcdonald?s=182

Offers: ASU, Cal, Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon State, San Jose St, UCLA, WSU

BeaverBlitz Notes: While BeaverBlitz never saw McDonald, he confirmed that he was attending the Beavers Junior Day earlier this month.  The 6-foot-5, 315 pound prospect has also been talking a great deal with local school Cal and UCLA.

http://www.scout.com/player/212499-donovan-laie?s=182

Offers: Colorado, Fresno, Hawaii, Oregon State, San Diego St, Utah St

BeaverBlitz Notes: While he doesn't have a ton of offers, Laie is talking to several other big time programs including USC and Ohio State.  He does plan to get up to visit Oregon State at some point this spring/summer.  The Beavers like him as a tackle.

http://www.scout.com/player/214072-brandon-mello?s=182

Offers: Cal, Colorado, Fresno, Oregon State

BeaverBlitz Notes: Local school Cal may be the team to beat for Mello, who recently added a Bears offer.
