    Since 2007, Oregon State has started 10, 10, 13, 10, 8, 5, 8, 8, 6, and 5 white players (excluding 2015 where there was no write-up). In 2018 they project to increase slightly to 6 white starters (one contested) – 27% of the starters across offense and defense. Non-Hispanic whites make up 78.5% of the Oregon Population (83.6% including white Hispanics).

    The Beavers continue their extremely successful (not) tactic of filling the offensive line and defensive front seven with as many poly players as possible. Ryan Nall graduated to the NFL after last season but his success meant nothing for Oregon State as they go back to the widely accepted race for running back, with one white RB on the roster in in-state SO Hunter Mattson. SR Timmy Hernandez will start as the WR-Y after 30 catches for 357 yards and 3 TDs in 2017. Michael Alfieri (FR) and Connor Laverty (SO) are the other two white receivers on the roster, while Mason Moran is listed as the #2 QB on the depth chart, as a WR on the roster, and has played safety previously.

    David Morris starts at safety for his sophomore season, while SO Jordan Gregory and SR Drew Kell are also on the roster at safety. In-state JR Hamilton Hunt is listed as a second-string ILB - he appeared in four games as a freshman but did not play as a sophomore, while SO Luke Leonnig will also be in contention for snaps. SR Adam Soseman will play as OLB depth, having appeared in 29 games with two starts through three years. 6'4 248lb RS FR Cody Anderson (in-state) looks the part at DE (after being a WR and DB in high school).

    The Gary Andersen era ended last year after Andersen posted a total record of 7-29 (3-24 in conference matches). Replacing Andersen is Jonathan Smith, who started at QB for the Ducks between 1998 and 2001 and was the Washington OC/QB coach from 2014 to 2017.

    Offense
    QB: Jake Luton (SR)
    WR: Timmy Hernandez (SR)
    LT: Blake Brandel (JR)
    C: Sumner Houston (SR)
    RT: Trent Moore (SR)

    Defense
    S: David Morris (SO) (looks white but could be slightly mixed?)

    Back-ups listed on the two-deep include QB/WR/S Mason Moran, C Yanni Demogerontas, RT Clay Cordasco, and ILB Hamilton Hunt.
