Oregon State enters their second bye of the season which not only gives the program a week to rest and prepare for Arizona, but it gives the coaching staff free time to recruit the next class of Beavers.
Bye weeks are essential to recruiting because they permit coaches to go on visits while they do not need to worry about a game that weekend. However, much of the 2020 recruiting class has been filled already.
Let’s introduce you to all of them. This will be the first article in a series that will span articles going over each offensive commit, defensive commit and targets still being recruited.
