Beavers interested in Pac-Five QB
Pac-Five quarterback Bryson Beirne had his moments of despair after suffering a season-ending knee injury last fall.
As of yesterday, the senior-to-be is feeling a lot better. Oregon State made Beirne a scholarship offer shortly before the 6-foot-2, 215-pound passer participated in the Beavers' one-day camp in Corvallis.
He will also attend camps at Cal and Arizona this weekend. Beirne will also go to a camp at Washington later this month.
"Coach (Mike) Riley offered me tonight. They've been asking me for a while. I competed in their drills and I really enjoyed it here," he said. "I'm definitely interested."
Beirne suffered an ACL injury midway through last season.
"They've seen injuries like this in the past, and they aren't worried about it," said Beirne, who has rehabbed the leg extensively since the injury.
