Oregon State tight end elects to enter transfer portal after four games
Oregon State tight end Jake Overman is leaving the program.
The fourth-year junior wrote in a note on social media Monday that he has put his name in the transfer portal and plans to save the rest of the 2023 year as a redshirt. He’ll have two years of eligibility remaining.

The 6-foot-4 tight end from California played nearly 600 snaps a season ago for the Beavers. So far through four games, he had seen just over 50 and hadn’t yet registered a target.
Tight ends Jack Veiling and Riley Sharp have taken over as the top options at the position, while Jermaine Terry II has also seen a role.
The 19th-ranked Beavers (3-1, 0-1 Pac-12) dropped their first game of the season Saturday to Washington State, 38-35. They outscored the Cougs 21-3 in the fourth quarter as they attempted to rally from a huge hole, but simply ran out of time.
They’ll host Utah this upcoming Friday for the first Pac-12 game of the season at Reser Stadium. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. PT on FS1.
