Scouting Reports: the offensive line & tight ends
As we've discussed, the 2011 Beavers recruiting class was heavy handed with defensive linemen, but that doesn't mean that the coaches forgot about the offensive line. While Coach Cavanaugh had his sights set on a few other prospects who went elsewhere, he also landed two of his top prospects in Mesa, Arizona's Justin Addieand Lakewood, California big man Darryl Jackson.
At tight end the Beavers also secured an early verbal commitment from Mt. Spokane standout athlete Kellen Clute, who committed after the Beavers camp and never looked back.
The BeaverBlitz Scouting Reports are based on the experience we've had
at the NIKE and College Camps in addition to first hand accounts from high school
and junior college coaches that have worked with these players. We take into
consideration information from the player, the physical attributes of each athlete,
and information from other evaluators. We have taken the time to do film evaluation
of each recruit. We've also tracked many of the in-state athletes through out
their high school careers. The following comments are strictly our observations
and opinions and do not reflect those of the Oregon State coaching staff.
