2010 Oregon State Football Recruits

Yesterday was Letter of Intent day around the nation. This is a huge event now with ESPNNews covering live announcements and blogs and tweets flying around all day.

Odighizuwa Signs with UCLA
The Oregonian
The Beavs even got in on one of the big announcements of the day when Owamagbe Odighizuwa wore an orange shirt, gave an Oscar-style thank you speach, and then put on a powder blue and yellow UCLA cap.

What the?!?

Honestly, that is just mean to Beavers fans.

The Twitter-verse had this to say:

@johndrobbins: Odighizuwa now has to lose to OSU for the next 4 years, tough choice buddy! #gobeavs

@OSUBeaverFan: Owa may get to play in the Rose Bowl every weekend but the Beavers will play in "The Rose Bowl Game" before UCLA does. Enjoy Owa #gobeavs

@Pnbuker: O-Live bulletin on Owa's interesting choice of shirt as Beavs get Neuheiseled ...
Owa was a huge recruit and could have been the first 5 star HS player to commit to OSU in recent memory. Probably one the only ones to actually make it into school as well... anyways, enough about Owa because its a good, if small, recruiting class for OSU.

There are some very intriguing players in there. We clearly are looking to help the defense. But a few of these guys may switch if needed. D.J. Welch runs a 4.39 40 as a LB. Awesome, but if he can't put on weight he could be a safety or switch to the offense. Shaydon Akuna was a highly rated player and a great "get". Sean Mannion is big and looks good at QB.
