      IMO – This is further justification that a new OC needs to be brought in. Under utilization of some players and over utilization of others. PLUS piss-poor decision making re which QB gets the playing time.

      In Andersen I trust but I must admit, sometimes I wonder………….

        Lucas would have transferred regardless of who came in as OC. He had been unhappy pretty much since he got here.

    With Lucas transferring, Beavs need need to sign a Juco RB as well. Nall and Pierce both were injured this year.

    Thomas has moved on and he had 241 yards total rushing as a JC guy. Academic liability who is a headcase.

    I don’t think you want your depth to be a young guy who is learning the game and needs to pack on 20 pounds. If there is a guy who is ready, then sure.

        Vince Guinta just started following him a couple days ago, just before Isaiah Miller announced his decommit. If he follows a guy, we’ve offered or are about to offer. If he unfollows a guy, we’re probably not getting him. (Jaylon Lane for example)

        Here’s another RB Guinta just started following.

    So a little bird who knows people connected to the new rivals (beaversedge) site told me something funny. I guess rivals uses a 3rd part chat program to run their tuesday night chat sessions. Mama used the same program back when it was beaverblitz. Rivals paid the fee, whatever it was.
    Well, i guess after she left blitz, she continued to run her chats through the same program, as rivals never cancelled her account. So she was letting rivals pay the bill for blitz/scout.

    Then, last week, she was cut off by rivals. This week she needs to find a new program for the scout/blitz chat session, so subscirbers are being told the reason for the chat program change is because a number of users were complaining about the old program. But in reality, rivals just figured out finally that they were footing the bill for scout and gave her the boot.
    Finances must really be tight at scout

    Tomorrow to me feels like it will be:
    Evans, Moore, Luton, Hodgins, Taylor and maybe Davis signing.
    I dont see us getting Lane. Cole chose Miss St yesterday, Miller flipped to Missouri.
    Biggest question mark for me is Agasiva.
    So, I’m expecting 5 to 7 early enrollee commits, with Davis and Agasiva being the two biggest unknowns ay this point.

    After that, maybe a Deonte Fortenberry or Vosean Crumbie could be some surprise names that weren’t mentioned much in recent weeks, now that we seems to have struck out with Nixon and Lane.

      Around noon today I saw an article posted on Google from Beaverblitz discussing how Agasiva choose the Beavs. I was like what?? Maybe it was a mistake or something they but posted today when it’s meant for tomorrow… I agree that I think Lane is out after commiting to us. Who commits then a few weeks later wants to hold a ceremony to choose between us and Texas Tech….

        I agree that Sattelmaier will be a Beav, but i didnt think he could commit early. I might be wrong on the early vs late thing, but since he is originally a 4 year player (Western Oregon), I dont think he is eligible for early signing, despite coming from a juco. I think he needs to wait for February.

        Either way, i think he’ll be a beav. That’s just the reason i left him off my earlier post

          Think he needs to officially get his associate degree before he can transfer. That wont happen till he finishes his 2nd year of college.

            To clarify, he can sign now but can’t enroll until he can transfer officially. So it’s more a matter of being counted in the 2017 class, as opposed to 2016 if he were able to enroll for winter term.

    Beavs just offered Vosean Crumbie. Teammate of OSU QB commit Jake Luton at Ventura Community College. Plays CB. Beavs hedging bets in case Lane goes with Texas Tech. Adding secondary depth is a need.

    “Sun Devils fans are going to be seeing more maroon and gold and less black and gray, marking a shift from what’s become a trend — thanks in large part to Oregon’s 21st-century fashion decisions — across college football.”

    Way to go ducks. Trend setters you are. More costume changes than Liberace. Just because you look good (so you think) doesn’t make you play better. I applaud ASU and hope others follow suit.

    Isn’t there enough talent at DT that Evans is going to have to really compete, or is the talent there lacking that much?

    I thought there were some injury recovery issues (Tago) and youth (Aydon), but looking at the roster it looks like there’s some D1 beef there in the 300 lb range and I expect them all to be better under Clune’s D and stronger after another offseason of training.

      Aside from Aydon, I don’t see any others that will jump Evans for playing time. He was set to be in the mix to start on a very good D at MSU.

      Per an article about Evans leaving MSU, “Evans, though, looked to be a big asset for Mark Dantonio and the Spartans this coming season as he probably would have made a push to become the starting defensive tackle. As a redshirt freshman in 2015, he recorded 21 total tackles and a sack and looked very impressive.”

      Never talk like that again. It was the most obvious failure in Riley’s recruiting efforts. To be fair, the death of Thompson was devastating in that area. But that’s because he was the only real steady DT talent we were going to have during his college career. Imagine how much better players like Chricton, Grimble, Wynn and Peko would have been. Imagine Tago and Tui not getting Tuerked because there would have been a Fred from Oaktown to deal with instead. Imagine our O-line getting constantly better because they have to deal with that in practice every day.

      Now imagine having to deal with two of those type of DTs. Imagine more of them.

      I’m surprised we don’t have more D-line types wanting to sign on to play with Elu. The sheer havoc he wreaks in the middle is going to reward every other D-lineman he plays with for the next couple years.

      That’s physical position, and they rotate 8 guys when everybody is healthy. So having somebody of his caliber to come and even be in the rotation is a huge lift. It will help us from wearing down in the fourth quarter which we saw all last year.

        I understand you can’t have too much there. My question was more about whether or not Evans could just walk in and start or if the existing players outside of Aydon were going to make it a competitive challenge for Evans to get playing time. Depth and competition are always preferred and necessary.

        My guess would be Agasiva, but since he listed us as a finalist I’m not sure that’s a big surprise. I’d classify a big surprise is a flip who wasn’t on anyone’s radar.

      Like Jack mentioned above, Ula would qualify as a surprise. Maybe Lucas moving on opened up that possibility again?

      Still think he ends up at BYU.

      Also, we havent heard anything final on Davis/Agasiva/Moore, so any of those could qualify as a surprise. Some are “big” too, but i wouldnt read much into that. Could just be a way to sell subscriptions. You cant tease an “average” surprise.

      These are the 5 I expected. A few other guys are on the fence and might sign soon.
      Nemec was behind the times, not really factoring in the changes (e.g. Lucas leaving and depth chart).

      Anyway, we landed two 4-star players today (Taylor would have also been a 4-star were it not for a broken leg). It’s a great day.

          They’re in the mix for several other Jucos, and the freshman preps look advanced for their age and ready to play if needed. Wouldn’t worry too much about it at this point.

          Beavs have immediate playing time to sell so JUCOs will be interested.

    Regarding Evans background and history with drug tests, GA had more to say than the expected “second chance” stuff. Paraphrased; his experience will help him be a positive influence on other players, and……I’ll be watching closely and will deal directly with him if there are problems

    Perhaps there will be more on GA’s comment in the future, he is due on with Canzano tomorrow.

      5 we signed: Evans, Sattlemaier, Hodgins, Taylor and Luton

      3 that flipped: Isaiah Miller(Logjam at position?), Lane to TTech(closer to home?), and Davis to Kansas State (who knows why…)

      2 that got away: Nixon to South Carolina, Cole to Miss State

      2 up in the air: Moore and Agasiva haven’t decided yet. Agasiva decision could come as early as this weekend. Moore could take clear up to signing day now. Sounds like ASU is in the mix for Moore, plus other teams could jump into the mix at this point. The longer he waits, the worse I think it looks for OSU.

      That’s 12. Anybody else you wanted to know about?
      Can’t sign ’em all. Still a good haul, and Moore or Agasive(or both) would be a plus for sure.
      Also wouldn’t be surprised if Crumbie now flips to us, or some other names pop up we haven’t heard about yet. Just because today was the JUCO/early signing day, doesn’t mean everybody has to sign today.

        Gotta think we get Agasiva or Moore since we have immediate, essentially guaranteed playing time.

          My thoughts exactly. How can we be bummed on a day when we land two 4* guys (3 really, if you count Taylor who should have been, but had to sit out his senior year due to injury)

          Then, we still have a decent shot at landing one more 3*/4* O lineman.

          How many classes did it take us to bring in our last three 4* guys? (not counting Shurod Thompson either) I think that’s going clear back to the Seumalo class. Today we get 3 in a single day.
          It was a great day, and now we don’t have to worry about any of those 5 guys getting poached during January.

        He’s worked with GA before so I’m assuming his input was positive. He’s chairman of the NCAA basketball selection committee. He’s from Spokane so he understands the region and I would assume wants to stay in the area. I’m not sure if he was involved in hiring Pat Narduzzi at Pitt but I think that was a good hire. He has also worked his way up from some fairly low beginnings (AD at Humboldt State).

    So about the CB position:

    Am I missing something, or does it really not seem like an area of need?

    Obviously you can never have too many solid CBs, and Decoud was a really good player. But Crawford and Williams seem pretty solid, and Christian is (hopefully?) in the mix. Then there are a few young players that look potentially interesting (Irvine, Wilson) and Hill who seemed servicable last year rounding out depth.

    Why are we targeting JC corners? Does this suggest that the young players (Christian, Irvine, Wilson) have not impressed?

      I’ve thought that same way about both CB’s and WR’s; seems to me OL and (to a slightly lesser extent) DL are really the areas where the Beavs need more qualified body’s. But it does come down to what is available.

        We definitely will have a ton of bodies at the WR position, but that makes more sense to me as that group really underperformed last year. I think GA is looking for a complete overhaul, and the incumbents will need to step up ASAP or get out of the way.

        For all of Bolden’s faults, he was the only guy on the team consistently getting open. Collins was decent but also inconsistent – hoping to see some big improvement there in his 2nd full year as a WR. Hernandez was OK but definitely an auxiliary option and not a primary receiver. JV and Jarmon were total no-shows….probably out of the picture unless they make huge strides this offseason.

        Bradford was interesting and seemed to look good whenever he had the opportunity. I think the depth chart will look something like:

        Collins
        Bradford
        Hodgkins
        Hernandez/Taylor/Sykes

        6 WRs for 3-4 starting slots- sounds about right.

          Time to talk to the 3rd/4th string WR about flipping to the defense.

          Collins likely to take a redshirt year. If you saw him after he got out of the hospital, he was looking pretty bad. It’s going to be a while before he gets back into playing shape.

            Is this being reported or are you making a prediction?

      Let’s remember we don’t have all the knowledge the staff does. There could be some attrition that we don’t know about, and he knows they will need somebody there. Maybe Williams injury is more serious (I mean he only played in 3 or 4 games). Or, it might have something to do with the depth, some of the guys like Hicks-Onu for example have been slow to find the field. Maybe he knows that some development takes time or they just aren’t going to contribute? Given those factors maybe we are short at that position.

    Interesting to see that the Beavs offered stud RB Conner Weddington who just decommitted from UW. UCLA also offered him recently and he received notice be was admitted to Stanford. I think the Beavs have room for four stud RB’s in their system if they get the right spread. It is a position where one or two guys could go down at any time.

      How often do guys turn down a free Stanford education for OSU?

        Not often, if ever. I think it shows this staff will go after anyone they feel fits the program.
