Oregon State lands three-star ATH Orion Maile-Kaufusi in class of 2021


It’s been a busy month on the recruiting trail for Jonathan Smith and the Oregon State football program. 

Through the NCAA transfer portal, the Beavs have landed South Carolina running back Deshaun Fenwick, Kansas corner E.J. Jones and Utah State offensive lineman Heneli Bloomfield all coming to Corvallis, Oregon in 2021.

Smith wasn’t done there.

On Friday, Oregon State landed a commitment from three-star athlete Orion Maile-Kaufusi:

Rated as a three-star prospect from 247Sports, Maile-Kaufusi is a 6’3”, 190-pound linebacker and tight end from East High School in Salt Lake City, Utah. 

He held offers from Utah State and Air Force as well as Oregon State before ultimately choosing the Beavs. Maile-Kaufusi received a scholarship offer last Halloween from Oregon State.

Should the Beavs see fit for Maile-Kaufusi at the linebacker position, he will learn under two of the best in the Pac-12 conference, Avery Roberts and Omar Speights.

You can watch his senior year highlights on HUDL here.

“DAM RIGHT” as Coach Smith would say.
