"He's an awesome player," Vacaville head coach Fred Jones said. "He was voted the League's Lineman of the Year by the coaches and it was a unanimous selection. He played defensive end and offensive tackle for us and everything we did was centered around him.
"On defense, he moves so well laterally that he was able to basically shut down his side of the field almost the same way a good cornerback can do. He's very strong and impossible to move. No one tried to block him one on one. On offense, we ran behind him all year. He just steam rolled people and is so quick off the ball and has a great first step.
"Oregon State hasn't told me what side of the ball they want him as but Kyle said they like him for offense as a center or guard. I think he could play on either side, he's that good."
According to Coach Jones, DeVan visited Oregon State two weeks ago and was really sold on the program and community.
"Kyle loved the coaches as well as the small town atmosphere," Jones said. "That's the kind of kid he is so he felt it was good fit for him. He had offers from UNLV, Utah and Boise State too but felt Oregon State was the best place for him and is excited to be a Beaver."
