The Oregon State Beavers are looking to pull themselves out of the depths of the PAC-12 in the 2016 season, but losing some pieces in their depth chart certainly is not going to help them. Their latest casualty is former quarterback and current tight end Brent VanderVeen.
The school announced on Tuesday that VanderVeen would be leaving the team, effective immediately. The Oregonian confirmed, however, that he would remain at Oregon State and obtain his degree, but there is no word on if he will transfer for his final season of eligibility.
Brent VanderVeen came to Corvallis as a three-star quarterback in 2012. He redshirted that season and rode the bench for the 2013 and 2014 seasons.
Head coach Gary Andersen came in before the 2015 season and moved him to tight end. VanderVeen caught his only, and presumably last, pass last season for 14 yards.
