2016 Oregon State signee Tyson Penn does not qualify

The Oregon State Beavers have not had a good run of football over the last few years and it doesn’t look like the 2016 will get any better. On Tuesday, three-star wide receiver signee Tyson Penn announced that he did not qualify academically and was no longer committed to play for the Beavers.

The Oregonian reported that his academics played a role into his recruiting process as it was said to have affected his scholarship offer and star rating.

While he was only viewed as a three-star player, Penn was said to be a huge sleeper and could have helped the Beavers out tremendously.

Tyson Penn only held offers from FCS power Montana and Oregon State, to whom he committed last summer citing the potential the Beavers had on the field. This is the second player the team has lost in their 2016 recruiting class after four-star safety Shurod Thompson announced he would not enroll with the school.
