Oregon State has lost a pair of defenders to the transfer portal.

Akili Arnold and Easton Mascarenas-Arnold are the 2 players – and brothers – in question, both of whom started for the Beavers this past regular season. Mascarenas-Arnold was Oregon State’s leading tackler this season while Arnold earned the top coverage grade of any CB in 2023.

Arnold finished the season with 62 tackles, nearly doubling his previous high of 33 in one season. He also had 6 pass deflections, 2 interceptions and a fumble recovery. The 5th-year senior will have just 1 season of eligibility remaining.

Mascarenas-Arnold had good seasons in 2021 and 2022 with the Beavers before detonating in 2023. He finished the year with 107 total tackles (49 solo), 2 sacks and 2 interceptions. Like his brother, Mascarenas-Arnold will have 1 season of eligibility remaining.
