- DT Ndamukong Suh (6-5, 275) - The importance of keeping in-state
talent in the state cannot be overlooked. Landing the highest rated
defensive lineman in Oregon since Mr. Swancutt is imperative.
- LB Adrian McCovey (6-3, 218) - I see the future of an OSU
defensive end and it is Adrian McCovey. OSU is in a battle
with Oklahoma for this Southern California product and possible future All
- DE Dennis Ellis (6-3, 265) - If Adrian McCovey is the future then
Dennis Ellis is the present. An instant difference maker, Ellis can bring
his winning ways, mean streak and speed to the Beavs, and start right away.
- DT Gabe Long (6-3, 275)- The top JUCO defensive tackle in the
nation was said to be favoring USC for a long time, but transcript problems
could bring him to OSU. He is a tenacious run stuffer and pass rusher
with an all around love and knowledge for the game.
- WR Ruben Jackson (5-11, 190) - The top wide receiver at City
College of San Franciso (CCSF), everyone in the country loves this guy. The
Beavers have not been mentioned much, but Mike Riley has ties to CCSF and
OSU needs a burner like Jackson.
- OL James Paulk (6-4, 290)- Former Washington commit and a rock
at offensive tackle for College of the Canyons. UW's offensive line coach
says he is destined to play on Sundays and that Matt Moore would never have
to look out for a shot in the back with Paulk at the tackle.
- OL Kainoa LaCount (6-7, 310) - This Hawaii offensive line product
is long at 6'7 and can play guard or tackle. Hopefully the pipeline to
Hawaii stays open on this one. He is a baller.
- DT Jonathan Kane (6-3, 285)- Another Hawaii big boy, but this one
plays defensive tackle. He is highly coveted and plays with a mean streak a
mile wide. If he comes to OSU, the first one-on-one battle between him
and Jeremy Perry in the pits will be epic.
- RB Micah Strickland (6-0, 210)- The top running back prospect in
Hawaii who could play linebacker in college. Can truck you or juke you. A
big athlete with tons of upside and the type of athlete that will see plenty
of time on the turf.
- Jason Haywood (6-4, 186) - Defensive player of the year for his team as a junior. Scout.com has him with one star which is a BIG mistake, a three or four star player who is going to decide between OSU and WSU.
