Has legitimate interest in the Beavers.

He's 6-3/218, which is light for a MLB, but he has a handful of big-time offers. He is from Washington, but his mother lives minutes from Corvallis, which could tilt him in that direction. He is a blue collar, throwback type player who hopes to make a decision this summer.

Given what looks like years of softness up the middle, this guy would be a great get.

    Hmmmm…

    I’m starting to like that Tyler Hasty signing more and more. Maybe some Myles Jack and Darien Freeman as well?

      I like hasty too he’s going to be the best cb since poyer…amd i’m not being sarcastic.

      BTW, Poyer is not “soft” or type B, remember, he’s lobbied Riley to run the wildcat offense, riley’s too conservative and doesn’t “use his chess pieces strategically.”

      Freeman looks good. Beavs need him.

        There’s another DT prospect out of Utah (?) who will likely blow up later as well. He’s a Poly kid who I’m told is looking for early playing time as his #1 priority. I have to go look up his name now. He has proto OT size, and is listed as an OL, but I’m told by my Duck friend that his conversations with Pac coaches have pointed toward him being a DT or DE in the Pac.

        There’s also an OLB and a CB from Juanita HS in Kirkland who look damn good. The CB is Kendrick Murphy, and the OLB is something like Trayvon McSomething. I’ll go look them up too.

    Freeman looks solid for sure. That would be a great pick-up for you guys.

    Good luck tonight – kinda

    I find it hard to get excited about recruiting this early. This guy might have OSU on his radar for the next 10 months, but it’s happened too many times where we’ve lost those top recruits in the final week. Cal or UW will probably swoop in the day before signing day and grab this guy and we’ll all be upset for a few hours. Beaver football is like the movie Groundhog day but on a yearly cycle.

      I agree. The only reason I mentioned him is because he’s a 4-star and plans to make a decision by summer.

    Angry, you have a bit of a tendency to extrapolate things that logically don’t follow.

    Apparently, Jordan Poyer is a type B personality(Who you claim fail at life) based on a few oddly chosen words during an interview, and now a kid who has yet to play his senior season and grow into his adult body(I hope) will help our weakness up the middle.

    <25% chance we get this guy. I'd prefer you go back to drawing logical conclusions, but I don't check this site as much as I used to, so feel free to disagree with me and do whatever you want to do.

      Obviously he’d have to put on 30lbs.
      And you’re the one drawing conclusions since you won’t be able to copy/paste me saying Poyer is Type B. I’m sure you check all Beaver sites less since there’s nothing going on and little to get excited about.

        Angry! There is a civil war game today. I’m excited about that! Where’s the thread?

        Is Taylor Starr getting the start? He’s been in the program for a long long time and finally getting a shot at whipping those dirty ducks.

        Go Beavs!

    I’m sure I’m late to the party, but did everyone see this? http://m.bleacherreport.com/articles/1156851-oregon-states-mike-riley-is-underrated

    Angrybeavs gets more attention.

    Other than that most of its BS.

      It’s not too terrible, other than it’s on BR. There are more truths than there are wishful ignorances. Imagine something even slightly this critical being written three years ago. What kind of wailing would we hear from the blindly faithful?

      Oh nice, they mention our petition.

      I disagree with a lot of that article. Riley is rated fairly. He’s a good value but not big time. Everyone knows that by now. It’s not fair to compare him to Stiner–Stiner only lost 49 games and was undefeated in bowls. Riley might have more wins (by next year), but he has a much lower winning %.

        That’s another point. Stiner coached a better overall record by percentage when teams only played nine games and only the best went to bowls.

      Oh… the only BS part was not getting the #1 prospect in the state last year. Duh!

      And IMO that led to getting two of the top O-line prospects out of Cali as well in Weinreich and Andrews (and Bays too). I think we’ve hammered the “stars don’t matter” theme enough. And I think the consensus is that they don’t, but the offers do matter. When we look at someone like Chase Eldridge, who was a no star who was eventually upgraded to two stars, then we can see there is value in the kid’s talent beyond what we originally saw in his tape… which was pretty good. Yes, his offers were late. But that’s the kind of rock-turning-over we need. We don’t need academically questionable borderline talents to be our diamonds. We just need our coaches to put that same effort into recognizing and recruiting primary positions.

      And poor Cleveland Wallace and Damien Shelton. By the time they see the field they will be getting burned by Mannion and whomever follows him. I was really cool on the first reports that Perry become our new DB coach. I was turned to the positive when he was eventually hired. And now I’m thrilled with the hire.

      IMO, that article with Poyer talking it up was him talking his walk for once. And I think that confidence was instilled by daily interaction and instruction with Perry and seeing how his fellow DB’s were responding to the same. I think he was finally convinced that he had all the pieces in place to start talking a bigger walk. And I think he is convinced he will walk beyond the talk.

        My initial reaction to Perry was negative since Heyward was becoming a good recruiter. I’m going to wait and see, though. If Perry can get the DBs to perform better on the field and the younger coaches can pick up the recruiting slack, then it might be better overall. Just have to wait and see the next couple years.

        I think most of us liked Eldridge even as a 0-star recruit.

          That’s what I’m talking about with stars versus offers. Eldridge was chased late in the recruiting cycle because he was recognized late by many coaches as a solid talent. OSU recognized him as one early, and we were rewarded with a solid o-line prospect signing. People will want to trot out the “more with less” monicker when he matures and probably gets a cup of coffee in the NFL… if not more. But we know differently.

          I always go back to the recruiting battle for Max Unger. I was devastated (not really, but analogy wise it’s apropos) that we didn’t get him. He was by far the best o-lineman we were chasing that year. And I think Perry was in the same class. So that’s where I really derived my disdain for star power. Unger was a home run wherever he was going to go, but he was two stars?

          I think the average for tokers on the paysite scouting level is on par with the average student athlete… somwhere around 70%. And if you want to argue that, OSU doesn’t have the same “problem” as Nikegon, then who was Garrett Embry visiting last fall when he was arrested for being a Duck?
