The biggest challenge for the Oregon State Beavers this off season was to shore up the defense. Getting a commitment from the nation's top JC Defensive end is a huge step.....a possible gamechanger. Here is what he told "beaversedge.com" about his decision to head to Corvallis:
"Oregon State is getting someone will take first take care of them in the classroom," said Lemon. "Second, they have someone that is going to come in and dominate snap in and snap out. I will go full effort, full speed, and full strength 100% of the time to get the win for OSU."
The Beavers also picked up a commitment from the number three rated JC defensive end Tavis Shippen so the defensive end position will no doubt pick up some depth with these two additions to the class of 2020.
Meanwhile, Jay Irvine who put his name into the transfer portal in may will transfer to Idaho State to play for the Bengals. He was in contention to start at cornerback last season but sustained a shoulder injury and never played. Irvine one of four players who entered the transfer portal. Quarterback Conor Blount is moving on to Eastern Kentucky while Running back Christian Wallace and cornerback Justin Gardner have yet to transfer.
