Wilson committed to Oregon State without ever seeing campus, and to our knowledge, the 6-foot-1, 180-pounder still hasn't made it to Corvallis. Wilson is not a social media guy and isn't all about the attention. The Beavers got a steal in Wilson, who plays for the TMP Mafia 7v7 team. All indications are that Wilson is solid with Oregon State.

Hodgins committed to the Beavs the day of Oregon State's spring game. He watched his brother, Isaiah Hodgins, play well that day, and the younger Hodgins decided that he wanted to play in Corvallis as well. With Hodgins' ties to Oregon State, he is an absolute lock to sign with OSU, barring some unforeseen circumstance.

The Beavers went a couple of months without a commitment after Hodgins made his pledge, but the wait was worth it as Petras' commitment was huge for Oregon State. Gary Andersen loves tall, gunslinging quarterbacks, and he has that in Petras. The future of the quarterback spot at Oregon State is in good hands with Petras, Aidan Willard, and Jake Dukart.

The Lake Oswego quarterback didn't have the same recruiting attention that Petras received, but that is in large part because Dukart was committed to Arizona State on a baseball scholarship. Dukart is committed at quarterback but could play other positions as well with his athleticism. He is also committed to play for Pat Casey's baseball program at OSU as an infielder.

Koch took an unofficial visit to Oregon State and fell in love with Corvallis. Koch chose Oregon State over other Pac-12 schools such as Arizona, Colorado, and Washington State. Other schools preferred Koch as an offensive tackle, but Oregon State recruited him as a defensive end, and the big 6-foot-6, 251-pounder loved that.
