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 the remainder of this week, we will be listing the players with early offers and those to watch who could see their Oregon State interest increase.
With the numbers the way they are, expect the Beavers to sign up to two tight ends in this recruiting class.
CURRENT TIGHT ENDS:
Offers: Arizona, ASU, Cal, Colorado, UConn, Florida, Miami, Ole Miss, Oregon State, Tennessee, Texas A & M, UCLA, USC, Utah, Vanderbilt, Washington and WSU
BeaverBlitz Notes: McDonald has all the eyes on him and rightfully so. Currently at 6-foot-4, 210 pounds, he has a frame to add weight. UCLA and USC look to be the teams to beat.
Offers: Oregon State, Oregon, Washington, Washington State
BeaverBlitz Notes: 4-star Culp has the attention of the Northwest programs, but that could quickly expand during the upcoming evaluation period. He was committed to Oregon before the coaching change, and while he is keeping his options open, the Ducks are still in the hunt.
Offers: ASU, Colorado St, Fresno St, Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon State, San Diego St, San Jose St, Utah
BeaverBlitz Notes: Stone is a Bay Area product, being recruited by position coach Dave Baldwin. Watch for the Beavers to make a push for him in the months ahead.
Offers: Oregon State & Oregon
BeaverBlitz Notes: Salem (Ore.) Sprague tight end Teagan Quitoriano may not be as highly ranked as other in-state prospects, but he has lots of talent and could see more offers roll in, especially if he hits the camp circuit. Both in-state schools have offered the 6-foot-6, 230 pound athlete, which gives him great size. Definitely an A-list prospect for Oregon State as they look to win the state in recruiting battles.
Offers: Brown, Colorado St, Fresno St., Dartmouth, Hawaii, Oregon State, Oregon, Princeton, San Diego St, San Jose St, Wyoming, Yale
BeaverBlitz Notes: Qualifying does not appear to be an issue for Webb who holds four Ivy League offers. At 6-foot-5, 225 pounds, Webb has good size and the frame to carry more weight. The question will be does he look toward the Ivy League education or big time college football.
