FORMER ALABAMA WALK ON QUARTERBACK Luke Del Rio signed a financial aid agreement to transfer to Oregon State, Mike Riley announced Saturday. Del Rio, who redshirted last season, will not be eligible to play in 2014 due to NCAA transfer rules and will have three years to play three at Oregon State beginning in 2015.
Luke Del Rio
is a 6-2, 203-pound quarterback from Highlands Ranch, Colo., who spent the 2013 season as a true freshman at 'Bama. Once he enrolls at
, he'll be able to participate in OSU’s spring drills beginning March 31, though he cannot play for the Beavs in '14.
“We are very excited that Luke has chosen to join the Oregon State Football program,” Riley said. “He is an exceptional young man and will be a great representative of Beaver Nation on and off the field.”
Del Rio last year eschewed scholarship offers from Oregon State and UCLA to walk on at Alabama, according to his bio page on Alabama's site.
An Elite 11 finalist as senior out of Valor Christian High, Del Rio was rated as the No. 2 player in the state of Colorado and the No. 27 pocket passer nationally by ESPN.com. He passed for 2,275 yards as a senior with 28 touchdowns against only four interceptions in leading the Eagles to the Colorado 5A State Championship.
He was named a first team all-state selection by the Denver Post. As a junior in 2011, he threw for 2,580 yards and 20 touchdowns at Episcopal High School in Jacksonville, Fla.
The newest addition to the Oregon State football program is the son of former NFL player, Jacksonville Jaguars head coach and current Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio.
Del Rio is the second student-athlete to transfer to Oregon State since the season ended, joining offensive lineman
from American River Community College. Keenan enrolled at OSU earlier this month.
Financial aid agreements bind the school but not the player. As such, it would seem Del Rio will 'officially' join the Oregon State program once he starts taking classes at OSU. The spring quarter at Oregon State coincides with the first day of spring ball, March 31.
