Scouting the offensive backfield

The Beavers took two quarterbacks in this year's class, both of which show
great promise. Led by Cody Vaz of Stockton, CA, a poised and accurate
passer who fits Coach Riley's offense well, he will be joined by another great
leader, Lake Oswego's Jack Lomax.

The Texas pipeline remains open as the Beavers also inked RB/S/LB, Ashton
Jefferson from Alvin, TX. Jefferson could be a great compliment to fellow
Texan, Jacquizz Rodgers in a year or two, but the athlete may see action sooner
at linebacker, where Coach Riley stated that he reminds him of Keith Ellison.

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.
