We didn’t lose the 4* kids….that’s good. Come on Samoan o-lineman.
if you guys care or not here is the link to the live stream for the recruiting by the beavers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tVYlnvrzXRY
Thanks for the link them beavers.
Kind of a strange feeling not having any anxiety about all of your top rated commits flipping to Wazzu or Cal this year. Yes maybe a little anti-climatic but I’ll take it. I bet we keep all and get 2 off the radar supprises.
One off the radar guy as of now….so we’re halfway there.
Who was that?
David Fangupo flipped to us from utah late last night. Not official yet though
350-pound running back, according to Google.
He’s in now.
Its official now. This kid is exciting
Going according to plan so far. Drama free is a good thing but kindof boring.
Pretty much right on track

Watching WSU recruiting ticker….they lost an OL recruit to SJSU. I don’t know if that is significant or not.
For not having much success on the field, these coaches have done a good job recruiting on paper. Let’s hope these guys pan out.
I sort of think that that is the draw for these young men. The coaches have a good pedigree and the team is rebuilding so these players see that they will have a chance to paly right a way. Hopefully in two or so years the team will be back in the race for the Pac- 12 North

Says the guy writing about Montana and Montana State. I could only imagine the fanfare involved with recruiting at either school.
Turnier is in. I think he was probably most in doubt out of our current commits.
WSU now has 23 recruits and 5 o-linemen, without that Samoan kid. All are high school kids. That makes it look like we might get him.
They have 24 recruits now.
Latu to BYU
Anae signs with Utah
Official list from the school:
Still missing a payne kid
I thought they only offered 1 and the other was going to walkon? Maybe I’m confused about that?
And he’s in now
That what the nice beaver said.
David Fangupo is a nice one. Always need DT bodies.
That was never a gripe about the last regime.
So many of these kids are big and long. I’m not used to this. Where are all our 5’10” (maybe) 180# (maybe) signings?
That, too. Physical specimens, all of them…Ferguson was the one guy who didn’t fit that, and he went to Vandy.
Even some of Riley’s looked different after one off-season in the Andersen regime. Those holdovers should be stronger this year. And these kids, after a year in the Andersen program…
I think in about two years opponents are going to be facing a very different Beaver team than soft Riley teams they were used to.
Riley Sharp was rumored to BYU…
Mission guy, though, so doesn’t matter. He’s a good looking TE
This class is looking pretty solid for coming off a 2-10 season. If we can make progress and start to get more wins i think we’ll continue to see improvement. The big factor for this class will be if they will all be academically eligible. Lockette has been a beast for us. Hopefully he hangs around awhile for recruiting purposes.
Penn looks good on paper. Seems like a while since OSU had a tall, athletic receiver pan out. I hope he does.
All the WRs look very good. Let’s hope a QB can get them the ball.
It’s 10:30 a.m. pacific and 7:30 a.m. in Pago Pago, American Samoa.
So far no new tweets from Mr. Mauigoa.
Mauigoa to the Cougs
He Coug’d it.
Parker calls James Dockery “the commish”
I guess he’s losing it, too.
Anyway, back to the last thread on competitiveness: a lot of these recruits seem to have it and actually enjoy it. Good sign.
Well, Dockery was announcing the players as their NLIs came in like the NFL Commissioner does in the NFL draft, so that one went over your head. Not shocking though. You’re certainly not the brightest bulb in the bunch.
Lost out on mauigoa. I think we have have 24 commits and with greyshirts and mission guys we can take 3 more? Which guys do we have high hopes for Himphill maybe fuatasaga not sure if he’s committed yet?
Himphill would be a good one.
Himphill is not coming unless he walks on.
A lot of schools have dropped him.
That is what you get when you play games with coaches.
I’m not sure he was playing with coaches. Seemed like he wanted to take trips and make the right call.
Nope. Not the case at all.
So, I did the rivals thing for a year and it expired today. In one of the last threads I read last night, Mama eluded to Himphill taking on a “Coach/Advisor” (kinda sounded like a street agent type) and this advisor turned the coaches off to him so they severed ties.
Sounds like the dude gave him really bad advice, as he spurned us for empty promises and backup positions that didn’t pan out.
So after all of that, Himphill listened to this dude, rolled the dice, and now might ended up with no P5 offers left.
Feel bad for him as he seems like a good kid. Might end up having to take on a year of debt and earn the ship’, but he looks like a player so I’m sure it’ll all work out. Hopefully he sucks it up, walks on at OSU, learned some valuable lessons. Otherwise best of luck.
I’m not seeing anything about schools dripping him. Care to cite a source.
Wow, that’s very stupid if true.
Maybe he was waiting for that Alabama offer.
Frederick Mauigoa to the coug’d
Ha I beat ya! Are you saying he couged it? 🙂
Is there somewhere where there’s a list of the kids who have signed?
I’m getting very tired of looking a Parker’s face and listening to him yap.
I liked it better when they just had a camera pointing at the commit board and every now and then there’d be an interview. Not this continuous yapping by Parker.
edit: just turn off the embedded stream
Also, Nemec has a running tally here:
Are we done now?
Only one QB?
Yep, I’ve been complaining about that for months.
One QB this year isn’t so bad. We had zero last year 😉
Coach Woods takes a shot at Riley saying they wanted to recruit players used to winning/competitive. Man, just called it last thread…so obvious when players are mentally losers, or at best uncertain of themselves.
I think it’s a very good signing day when you keep everyone and poach 1.
And you’re done this early in the day without a bunch of wondering, waiting, or drama…that indicates coaching staff did the work early, maintained it, and it paid off.
Pierce looks terrific. He has an SEC RB type body, but with more speed than a lot of those guys.
Totally agree looks like a 4 star to me.
Yes, I think he should be a 4-star and Wallace a high 3-star at CB due to size. I think offer list skewed ratings in these cases.
Yeah he looks like a monster. Lockette must have had him on poacher lockdown. He’s one I was afraid was going to get some late attention.
Think we have a spot left not sure tho. Tupai isn’t committing yet he wants to make sure the school is hands on with academics. Might be worth keeping an eye on.
He should go to UNC. They are so hands on they make up fake classes for jocks.
UNC can’t hold a candle to the quacks. Screw fake classes, they made an entire fake university for their jocks!
So, no Sione Finau or Emony Robinson?
No surprises there I suppose.
Did Robinson have any other offers?
Nothing that was reported.
Watching the rolling film of these guys now. They’re going to be very very good.
Timmy Hernandez stands out as a weak link, but hopefully he can be a good ST player and maybe possession/slot WR. I thought Wallace was a little overrated…why 4-stars? Doesn’t seem to have elite speed. Looks like a legit 3 star but looks like he got a bump due to Texas offer. Is he slated to play CB? I think he can be good/physical there, but I don’t see the elite speed you’d expect from a 4-star.
I haven’t watched his film since he committed but I think he could be a Steven Jackson type runner if he hits the weight room. To me at least.
Hoping Hernandez can continue to play both ways and help out in the nickel if needed and if he has the ability at this level of competition.
If one or more of these guys are mission guys, can Andersen have more offers available next cycle and start addressing the QB numbers (and quality obviously).?
Emory and Ivory, livin
Because Timmy Hernandez was already a qualifier his scholarship number counts toward 2015 from what I heard, which makes him more desirable. I thought that Hernandez had very good hands on his video, which is a need.
Baldwin speaks highly of Hernandez’s character. Sounds like a winner and leader at the least.
Kee Whetzel is going to play OLB?? He’s 6″4 and 200lbs and listed as a WR. They’re talking about him as a LB. Crazy
Ya it seems that he’ll be a redshirt project type guy at the olb spot. While alot of the other guys are pretty much at pac 12 weight.
Or, if he’s got better hands than ‘Boom, put some weight on him and move him to TE.
@angry. It is pretty common for coaches trying to build up a programs top target guys like him. The downside is that they are usually not ready to play their position full time until they are RS sophs.
I would expect him to play ST and maybe as a situational edge rusher as RS frosh. We had a kid here at Minn. with the exact measurables and by the end of his RS freshman year he was playing like a future monster. Unfortunately, his mom got sick and he had to transfer to be close to home. Luck O……
OT – does Brent Barry have any meaningful interaction with the OSU MBB program? He seems like a very likeable guy, and appreciate the fact he has a sense of humor about himself. He’s got two rings and is a broadcaster, so it seems like it’d be effective to have him around once in awhile to represent the program.
I’d really like to see the Beavs change their name to the Mammoths. I’m not even joking in the least. That story is so unique it’s worth a name change.
I do enjoy that our mascot is the state animal. The story is cool, but a name change? Hell nah. We’re historically a forestry, agriculture, and engineering school. The beaver simply fits in WAY too well with that. Although I do have to admit a mammoth would look pretty cool on a helmet.
We could at least start calling Reser “The Boneyard”, kinda like how LSU calls Tiger Stadium “Death Valley”, Michigan calls Michigan Stadium “The Big House”, Florida calls Ben Hill Griffin Stadium “The Swamp”, Ohio State calls Ohio Stadium “The Horseshoe”, etc.
Nebraska calls their website the Boneyard. How about Mammoth Stadium??
Would be ironic for one of the smaller venues in Pac, and one that doesn’t sell out.
The limit of it will likely be concession offerings…”The Mammoth Burger!” etc….
The problem is the state animal is associated with female genitals by most folks and doesn’t do a bit of good w.r.t. recruiting.
How about the Camels? They also found a camel bone…”Its been more than a year since the Camels tasted PAC-12 victory, and there thirsty for victory today here in Reser stadium in their Pac-12 home opener….” Not sure the women’s sports teams would think such a name change would distanced them much from vagina jokes…beavers, camel toes….get rid of Reser have Joe Camel, smokes at the concession stand….
Site change to “AngryMammoths” huh?
There was a mammoth bone – and actually camel – found in Eastern Oregon over 10 years ago…
How about the Camels? They also found a camel bone…”Its been more than a year since the Camels drank of PAC-12 victory, and there thirsty today here in Reser stadium in their Pac-12 home opener….” Not sure the women’s sports teams would think such a name change would distanced them much from vagina jokes…beavers, camel toes….get rid of Reser have Joe Camel, smokes at the concession stand….
Site change to “AngryMammoths” huh?
How bout the OSU “Mammoth Camel Toes.”
Mammoth doesn’t exactly help us sound modern. It makes us sound big, slow, and old. So like Riley but big.
Beaver makes us sound sex-ay and gnawty!
This is a solid class, given the on-the-field results from last season. However, it has to get much better. We lost too many battles on the trail, we did win a few. But when you look at the rankings we will be anywhere from 10-12 in the pac12 and mid-40’s nationally. That is not good enough to make a difference on the field in my opinion.
I got to wonder what it would have been if Sitake hadn’t left, now maybe we would have been stuck with more Mission kids which would not help either. But if he could have closed on the likes of Juarez, Mauigoa, Latu, and maybe Anae who knows? It is what it is.
This class hit the defense hard, which was needed. I like Shurod, Wallace, Hamlicar, and Garcia. Guys like Shemar Smith and Kenny Turnier and Kee WHetzel are guys who could help as well.
Offensively its a little bit lacking. I think Tyson Penn, Artvais Pierce, and Kyle White will be impactful players. But I think we could have used an impact player on the line and at TE and I don’t see that.
Mason Moran is QB I like, but considering we are thin at that position I would have liked to see another one there, its a head scratcher being the most important position.
Hopefully, with a few more wins we can do even better next year. We already have a commit for next season so its a good start. Next years class became even more important after this class. I think the Beavs need to be in the top 35 nationally and ranked between 5-7 in the conference, in order to make a significant uptick in the performance. The avg star of these guys is too low in my opinion (around 2.75) we need to be much closer to 3.0.
I think its always productive to include Olineman, but they must be OK with the current OL roster, but they did emphasize they wanted more roster balance with regards to number of offensive and defensive players, so they worked hard to correct that this cycle.
I’m ok with Sitake’s departure, and think it was likely better sooner. The characterization of Clune as someone who doesn’t celebrate a defensive play, but immediately starts drawing up the next one, is the kind of intensity and constant attacking I like. Let the players celebrate (within reason).
Andersen et al will build on this class, and OSU’s roster will improve. Maybe this next cycle for example Lockett will recruit Florida talent more at the O and D line positions and secondary. Also, would like to see them getting the limited in-state talent without reaching for in state players just for the sake of having them on the roster.
Recruits will see progress on-the-field this year. As someone else said, this is a solid class for a 2-10 season.
A good point. Although they did well recruiting the NW, getting some high end talent out of Washington. They did poorly In-state. of the top 15 In-state players they got 1 (Bradford), oregon got 3 of the 4star kids. That needs to improve as well.
You can’t force kids to commit. A lot of these kids want to get out on their own. Even if you offer every one of the top 15 some just dont want to come. Do you spend extra work on them or do you go out of state to guys that want to listen?
True, but several did in-state, they just went to the wrong school…
Like Andersen says: “We’re gonna recruit who we want to recruit.” At some point, if a kid is cool/cold to the idea of staying in-state, agreed you have to move on. But that is something they probably try to establish fairly early in the conversation.
My concern about the transition from Sitake to Clune is this – -can Clune recruit as well as Sitake. So far I haven’t seen any evidence that he can.
Re Lockett: I believe he’s the lowest paid assistant on the staff or if not the lowest right down near the bottom. Based on the kids he’s bringing in imo he should be getting a healthy raise.
Way too early to say if Clune is a bust at recruiting. Did you really want Clune bring 2* guys over from usu?
Agree and that’s why I said so far. Time will tell.
I’ll take ’em, although two stars is on the rich side for me. Golly I hate coaching those prima donnas!
Amen Kman, amen.
I wonder if the plan is to have some of these LB that were signed put on 100 lbs and play on the DL or perhaps go from a 3-4 to a 2-5 alignment. Just kidding,,, I guess.
just hearing Andersen speak is such a difference…he was talking about have the mental mind set to be a pac 12 player. Sure it might all be coach speak but at least it sounds a heck of a lot better than the old regime .
Man with a plan. Today goes a long way toward getting it in place.
Sounded to me like Andersen was saying the first year was a clusterfuck and it’s time to start changing things.
I only heard part of the presser.
The part I heard was the period he was talking about ‘the in state kid’ who said he wanted to be a Beav but then got someone talking in his ear and decided to look around and couldn’t make up his mind.
He didn’t mention the kid specifically I’m guessing it was Himphill. He was roasting him pretty good though and said they hoped the best for the kid and Beavs decided it was best to move on.
Pretty much validating DB and DWill above.
LOL Andersen’s presser – the video doesn’t sinc with the audio.
If I’m reading the ESPN top 40 list correctly, OSU at 39 is the 7th best in the Pac. I don’t ever remember Riley getting that high.
That may be true but according to the Oregonian all Riley had to do was bless a 2 star recruit and they became a 5-star NFL prospect.
That’s right. And remember, according to Ken Goe, the cupboard wasn’t bare.
Who was the one recruit people were most worried about losing? Great that we seemed to get everyone we were counting on!
Mauigoa — Not a flip but a significant miss.
No one from me, I just wanted the Samoan olinemen. The steal from utah was sweat though.
No sweat required.
How is this for a bad name LOL. Rodent Bowl is on the clock.

Who ever was responsible for the audio/video of coach A’s presser should be replaced. That was the kind of deal one would expect from Oregon State Agricultural College, not Oregon State University.
Imo there are a lot of people who get a pay check from OSU who still have the mind set of the old days where the OSU athletic department was in debt up to their ears and therefore just getting by was good enough. No reason to look, act and be professional in everything that’s done.
Coach A is trying to raise the level of the football team up to the standards one would expect from a Pac-12 school AND NOW IT’S TIME FOR THE ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT TO DO THE SAME AND IF THE PEOPLE WORKING THERE WON’T/CAN’T THEN THEY SHOULD BE REPLACED.
Hopefully there weren’t any future recruits watching that presser because it looked amateuristic, like something one would expect from a hick school.
End of rant.
But, but………..we’ve got the “ideation” guy now! And………..still the empty seats showing up on TV even when Gill has over 4k in attendance.
I don’t think they have filled the positions yet…except for the…….. Director of ideation? Ideation czar? King of ideation? Colonel of ideation? El guapo ideation?
Sounds kinda made up doesn’t it? Like a job that’s been created in order to justify hiring junior.
Is that guy related to someone on staff?
@BB “…Is that guy related to someone on staff?…”
LOL! Good point 1OB. I’d forgotten about that hire.
Probably students in the sports marketing program or whatever equivalent we have. I think you may have to cut them some slack as they’re doing it for free and still learning how to produce a show/press conference/whatever.
Cut ’em slack if the presentations were shown in a 300 level class, maybe.
When OSU puts something out for public consumption I’d like to see better.
Right on 1OB. This day was considered a big enough deal in order to justify having MP be the MC for 6+ hours. Only to finish it off with a presser like that. OMG
I find it very hard to believe that the technology wasn’t available for them to get the audio and video in sync while GA was talking. Or if nothing else call a time out and fix it rather than just let it go on.
Can’t help but wonder if the dip stick who let that happen is a ‘uck grad.
Sure it wasn’t your devise? It was synced up on my phone. Or maybe my phone fucked up and synced it back to normal?
Don’t think it was my device. I was using my desktop and connected to the OSU feed.
Were you watching it real time?
Ugggg lots of kids, but not many that would even be invited for a visit of the top 10 Pac-12 schools.
It’s not so much what we’re doing. On paper these seem like fine prospects. But when compared to other conference teams and even Boise State, theres no way to sugar coat it. We’re getting belly to back suplexed by everyone except Colorado, but at least Colorado had a win in conference and their overall football history and program is vastly superior in the National picture.
This is a huge hole to ask/honestly expect these coaches to be able to dig us out of.
Andersen seems like an Ok guy but he’s super low energy like Jeb Bush, and QB’s seem to be terrified of him.
Most of these signees will never see the field. Bums!
– signed, soaking wet & standing in a field
Currently neither we nor the coaches know what’s in this class. The proof will be in the pudding 2 or 3 years from now.
Mostly a troll attempt here.
I think almost everyone we got had power 5 offers. Why is a pac12 offer any better or worse?
We kept our top rated recruits, poached a huge player in a huge area of need from a PAC-12 school, and still could very well be in play for one more highly rated player (Tupai).
I think this recruiting class was a great success.
Himphill ended up signing San Diego State.
What a weird story.
Kids shouldn’t get caught up in scummy Willie Lyles types or else they could face consequences.
That really sucks for him. Where were his parents?
Yeah what a tough break to go to college in San Diego for free. Poor kid.
Well yeah, their roster is top to bottom 5 stars because San Diego is so awesome.
San Diego kind of sucks.
It’s all right wing/military weirdos, homeless people, and college idiots.
Hey fucker I lived there when I was in the military 😀
The real point is that his plan was to play college football for the best team in the best conference that he could. If an 18-19 year old kid was allowed to hire some Will(ie) Lyles reject to give him shitty advice, there is something wrong with his support system.
The impact of this class will be felt immediately. The JC transfers need to win the starting roles right away or their scholarships were wasted.
I don’t expect any of the freshman to make splashes next year. They all need to redshirt.
Pierce could easily be the starting RB.
I disagree a lot here. His listed 40 time on his hudl page is 4.43. His film looks more like 4.6 or 4.7. Good agility but is certainly not a burner.
To me, for a running back to come in and make an impact, his hs film should show him looking like a man among boys against all competition. Pierce does not look like that at all. 950 yards his senior year and only 6 TDs? 200+ came in one game. That doesn’t scream impact player at all. Two games he was held under 15 yards rushing.
The low 3 star rating he has seems right to me. Redshirt and another year on the bench is what I’d predict.
Pierce was injured in a game early in the season (15 yarder maybe?)
And i think he missed a couple of games or was at least very limited. Gor healthy and started producing more.
I don’t care what the numbers say, that guy is a 5-star RB talent.
Maybe he had a crap line or injuries as mentioned.
His first game was 13 yards. His last game was 15 yards so the injury story doesn’t hold the whole season. Sorry, a 5 star guy produces regardless of his line.
Try considering his competition, much better than what your going to see in most places.
Here’s a replay of the entire signing day: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tVYlnvrzXRY
I’m going to put my yearly rankings up tonight.
What happened to Ricky Liuchan?
I loved him, and Mamma Machado once wrote she thought he could start as a freshman…what happened?
Speaking of Liuchan and his fellow LB’ers………
I wonder how these guys feel about their chances of remaining on the roster?
18 Malik Gilmore LB 6-3 219 Jr. Lakewood, Calif. (Lakewood HS)
5 Kyle Haley LB 6-0 220 Jr. Anaheim, Calif. (Golden West CC) (Western HS)
49 David Henry LB 6-0 233 So. Umpqua, Ore. (Oakland HS)
55 Manase Hungalu LB 6-1 230 So. Kailua-Kona, Hawai’i (Kealakehe HS)
58 Hamilton Hunt LB 6-0 203 Fr. Salem, Ore. (West Salem HS)
48 Jaswha James LB 6-2 266 Sr. Inglewood, Calif. (Inglewood HS)
42 Sam Kuschnick LB 5-11 209 Fr. Brooks, Ore. (Silverton HS)
44 Ricky Liuchan LB 6-1 233 Fr. San Marcos, Calif. (Mission Hills HS)
8 Rommel Mageo LB 6-2 233 Jr. Pago Pago, American Samoa (Samoana HS)
51 Kris Olinger LB 6-0 207 Fr. Fruitland, Idaho (Fruitland HS)
42 Ricky Ortiz LB 6-0 242 Jr. Corona, Calif. (Mater Dei HS)
35 Caleb Saulo LB 6-1 225 Jr. Kent, Wash. (Kentlake HS)
47 Bright Ugwoegbu LB 6-2 217 RFr. Katy, Texas (Seven Lakes HS)
32 Jonathan Willis LB 6-1 216 RFr. Tulsa, Okla. (Booker T. Washington HS)
Half those guys are gone already or walkons.
Yep. RIP, Inspector Clouseau.
I think “RIP” is premature, see below
That data came from the OSU athletic website. Yet another example of the shoddy work that’s going on there.
Aren’t Willis ‘ s chances good? Didn’t he play well at end of last season?
Yes, I believe the inspector is expected to return.
Per Gadget Times 1-23-16:
“The Beavers are solid at linebacker with Rommel Mageo, who led the team with 87 total tackles, back in the inside with Caleb Saulo (second with 69 tackles), Jonathan Willis (third with 67) and Manase Hungalu (43 tackles) also returning…..
At safety, Justin Strong might not be returning after missing several games with a concussion”
I thought Strong was gone for sure but couldn’t find verification in a quick search.
After blunt meetings with current players following the 2015 season, the departures quarterback Nick Mitchell, defensive lineman Luke Hollingsworth and linebacker Malik Gilmore made more scholarships available. Tight end Tanner Sanders’ departure during fall camp, wide receiver Datrin Guyton’s dismissal in November and quarterback/receiver Seth Collins’ abrupt transfer less than two weeks ago did the same.
Recruiting rankings up are up with some observations after watching their film.
