MARK BANKER HAS A NEW 'BACKER

Posted Apr 6, 2011


IT TOOK A little while longer than originally forecast but linebacker Josh Williams has been admitted to Oregon State and will practice with the Beavs for the first time on Wednesday.

Mark Banker, defensive coordinator and new linebackers coach for the Beavers this season, will welcome Josh Williams (6-0, 218) for this afternoon's practice, the fifth of the spring session. Mike Riley made the announcement on Williams late Tuesday per a release from Oregon State Sports Information.

Williams, a 6-0, 218-pound linebacker, originally planned to be with the Beavs in January after spending the '10 fall to up his qualifying score. Now that he's squared away his academic house, OSU adds more speed to the equation with Williams in the mix.

Williams had 110 tackles (60 solo) as a senior in 2009, earning first team honors and helping Salesian to their deepest playoff run in the 51-year history of the program. He also helped the basketball team to the state title.

Oregon State will hold its first “scrum” of the spring practice session Friday.
