National Signing Day 2020: Meet the new faces of the Oregon State Football Program

It's that time of the year again: National Signing Day.

Although this season's signing day isn't as chaotic as most due to the early-signing period locking up the majority of kids in December, the Beavers still signed some scholarship players as well as some preferred walk-ons, who should not be slept on. Oregon State cornerback Jaydon Grant began his career in Corvallis as a PWO and worked his way into a scholarship and starting role. Perhaps one of these kids may do the same.

Let's meet the newest Beavers.

Scholarship Players

Name: Rejzohn Wright
Position: Cornerback
247 Rank: 41st raked JUCO CB
Height: 6-foot-3
Weight: 186 pounds
School: Laney College (CA)




What Wright brings to the table:

  • Ball skill

  • Thrives in one-on-one 

  • Can tackle in the open field

You can watch his highlights below.

Name: Tyler Morano
Position: OL
Height: 6-foot-6
Weight: 255 pounds
High School: Granada High School (CA)



What Morano brings to the table:

The two-star offensive lineman will redshirt his freshman season to bulk up and get his body ready for Pac-12 football. Offensive lineman talent on the west coast was down this cycle so the Beavers needed to get a two-star but hopefully they can develop him into a capable player in Corvallis. 

You can watch his highlights below.

Preferred Walk-Ons

Name: Porter Phillips
Position: RB/Safety
Height: 6-foot-1
Weight: 210 pounds
High School: West Albany (OR)



What Phillips brings to the table:

It's unclear what position he'll play in college but the reigning Mid-Willamette Offensive and Defensive Player of the Year will look to show he can compete on a P5 level. While he's playing 5A OSAA football, his tape does look impressive and he's clearly better than that level of football.

You can watch his highlights below.

Name: Malik Kelley
Position: TE/DE
Rank: N/A
Height: 6-foot-3
Weight: 220 pounds
High School: Roosevelt High School (OR)




What Kelley brings to the table:

A good frame to build him up to Pac-12 size.

You can watch his highlights below.
