2012 Class on Becoming Part of Beaver Nation

During the early signing period we received National Letters of Intent from three individuals, Tyler Carlson, Brett Johnson, and Chris Tedesco, who are set to join the program in September 2012.  The  official announcement from our school came via osubeavers.com a couple of weeks ago.  Each of them are going to be great fits for our program and we can’t wait to get them on campus next September.  We thought we would ask them to tell us a little more about themselves and what brought them to Oregon State.
