Oregon State loses commitment from 2024 OT out of Hawaii
Rustin Young committed to play for Jonathan Smith’s Oregon State program in July. With Smith no longer at OSU, Young has decided to find a new home.
Young took to social media on Wednesday to announce his decommitment from the Beavers. He cited “recent changes,” as leading to his decision.
“I would first and foremost, like to thank God for the guidance and blessings that HE has bestowed upon me,” Young wrote in a note posted on X. “I would like to thank Oregon State University and the entire city of Corvallis for the love that I have been shown by all of you. With the recent changes, I will be decommitting from Oregon State University.”
A standout of St. Louis High School in Hawaii, Young is listed as measuring 6-5, 275 pounds. He is rated 3-stars, the No. 54 offensive tackle and No. 651 prospect overall on the 247Sports Composite. Young’s original finalists were Oregon State, Utah and Hawaii.
The Beavers currently have 10 verbal commitments in their 2024 class with the Early Signing Period approaching later this month.
