2010 CLASS: The future stars

IN PART II of a three part series, BF.C looks at some of yesterday's signees who are the prime candidates to become significant contributors, and as soon as their second season in the program. We're expecting the Beavs to try and redshirt all or most -- it's how you build a program for the long haul -- but some could also play a significant role on special teams or solidify the depth chart early.

A quick step defensive end who is expected to be in Corvallis for spring practice and fill an immediate need on the defensive line.

Originally signed with Oregon in Feb. of 2007, but went to Saddleback College in 2009 due to grades.

 


When he wasn't injured Iona was one of the most dominating interior players in Washington.  Despite missing half of the season with an ankle injury he still earned honorable mention all-state honors.

Unfortunately grades will delay his enrollment until at least Jan. of 2011, if not longer. If he does set foot on campus though he will be a candidate for early playing time.

 


This versatile athlete has legit 4.4 speed as he rushed for 1,983 yards and 22 touchdowns as a senior. The first team All-East Bay player is slated to lineup at safety in orange and black.

 


Despite teams focusing most of their attention on Perry the Channel League's Offensive Player of the Year hauled in 46 receptions for 603 yards and seven touchdowns as he used his 6-foot-5 frame to his advantage.

 


The Sunset League's Offensive Lineman of the Year seamlessly moved from offensive tackle to center and excelled leading his team to a 13-1 record.

Plus his bloodlines aren't bad either as his dad is Pro Bowler and four time NFL Champion Jesse Sapolu.

 


One of the most physically impressive recruits Welch was seemingly built to crush ball carriers.

The first team All-CIF Eastern Division linebacker averaged 11.8 tackles per game as a senior, but has a few classes to take care of before setting foot in the Mid Valley.
