4-Star LB Easton Mascarenas Commits to Beavers, Becomes Highest-Rated Defensive Commit in Program History

Four-star rated prospect Easton Mascarenas, the nation’s No. 11 inside linebacker and No. 243 overall prospect, officially made his commitment to the Oregon State Beavers on Tuesday.

The commitment was so significant, that it is possible to list out every HS football prospect in Oregon State program history who was rated higher than Mascarenas: RB Steven Jackson (no. 78 in 2001), QB Derek Anderson (no. 46 in 2001), OL Michael Phillip (no. 132 in 2009), and OL Isaac Seumalo (no. 28 in 2012).

All of the prospects just mentioned happened to line up on the offensive side of the ball, which makes Mascarenas the highest-rated HS defensive prospect to ever commit to the Beavers.

Mascarenas is a 6-foot, 220-pound ILB, who attended Mission Viejo High School in CA. He chose Oregon State over offers from many other Pac-12 schools such as Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, Colorado, Washington and Washington State.

Head coach Jonathan Smith continues to make steady improvements within the program, as the foundation grows stronger.
