Oregon State went into Texas for a running back in the 2022 recruiting class and secured one of the steals of the cycle. So the Beavers are going back to the well hoping for similar results in the 2024 cycle.

On Saturday, Frisco (Texas) Memorial tailback Brandon Tullis announced his commitment to the Beavers. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound runner picked the Beavers over Cal. He also held offers from Kansas, Minnesota, Boston College, and Tulane, among others.


Tullis took an official visit to Corvallis on June 16 and came away impressed. A week after that visit, he set his commitment date.

As a junior last fall, Tullis ran for 680 yards and nine scores while adding another 286 yards and three touchdowns through the air. He’s a bigger body out of the backfield, yet still a capable option in the pass game.

The industry-generated 247 Composite has Tullis rated as a 3-star prospect and the No. 92 back in the class.

He becomes the 10th verbal pledge for the Beavers so far this cycle — and the third in the last week. You can see his highlight tape below, via Hudl:
