Scouting Report: 2013 Linebackers

New full time linebackers coach Trent Bray set out to add athleticism to the linebacker unit and he did just that with three signees who fit the Beavers defense perfectly. All play with an aggression and the ability to hit hard which Bray likes to see.

Michael Greer is a true linebacker. He's fast and plays downhill. Oregon State coaches were on him early and he stuck to his commitment after other PAC 12 programs started calling in January. Terin Solomon is more of a rangy hybrid athlete who could play safety or linebacker. Like Greer, he likes to hit and hit hard. Darrell Songy committed early to Texas State, but switched things up when the Beavers offered.

The BeaverBlitz Scouting Reports are based on the experience we've had
at the NIKE and College Camps in addition to first hand accounts from high school
and junior college coaches that have worked with these players. We take into
consideration information from the player, the physical attributes of each athlete,
and information from other evaluators. We have taken the time to do film evaluation
of each recruit. We've also tracked many of the in-state athletes through out
their high school careers. The following comments are strictly our observations
and opinions and do not reflect those of the Oregon State coaching staff. The "Dream Rating" is the score based upon the Rivals.com ratings that author Daniel Klobes would have awarded each athlete. He has spent years playing football and was a member of the Oregon State squad in the mid-2000's.
