Rundown: Hodgins is a no-brainer to be on this list as he's already fighting for a starting spot. The former Rivals250 recruit was impressive in spring practices and looked like a veteran receiver in the spring game. Hodgins is poised to have a big time career for years to come in Corvallis.

Rundown: Allen is the type of player that you just want on the field. With Hunter Jarmon opting to head to the San Diego Padres organization rather than playing his senior season at OSU, that opens the door for a guy like Allen to get on the field. Allen could also play a role on special teams.

Rundown: Taylor enrolled at OSU in January but was held out of spring practices as he was still recovering from his leg injury that he suffered last summer. Taylor proved that he is a great talent during his junior season and could do great things at Oregon State. We'll see if he's 100% ready to go this fall camp, and if he is, he could find himself in the receiver rotation.

Rundown: 15 of Oregon State's 25 recruits in the 2017 class are offensive players and five of them are junior college recruits. I expect running backs Calvin Tyler and BJ Baylor to redshirt as well as quarterback Aidan Willard. Wide receiver Arex Flemings was a guy that I considered to be on this list but went with Taylor and Allen instead. That leaves the three true freshman offensive lineman in Onesimus Lutu-Clarke, Travis Mackay, and Brock Wellsfry. With OSU bringing in three junior college offensive lineman, it's probably unlikely that a true freshman offensive lineman plays this year, but Lutu-Clarke is a guy that got to OSU before Mackay and Wellsfry and could play this year.
