Two Beaver JC D-linemen probable for start of camp

Kyle Peko and Charlie Tuaau are "probable," and Lyndon Tulimasealii is "doubtful."

That's the word from Oregon State coach Mike Riley on the eligibility of three junior-college defensive linemen not yet on campus, with training camp opening Monday in Corvallis.

Peko is a 6-2, 295-pound tackle from Cerritos College in Norwalk, Calif.

"He has a (junior-college) class that he is supposed to finish Thursday," Riley said Monday night. "If he passes, he'll be here this weekend."

Tuaau is a 6-4, 265-pound tackle from Riverside (Calif.) College.

"I don't see anything in the way of him being eligible," Riley said. "He is supposed to be in Corvallis later this week."

Signs are that Tulimasealii, a 6-4, 270-pound end from College of the Desert in Palm Desert, Calif., will not make it academically.

If Peko and Tuaau qualify, they'll join JC transfer tackles Edwin Delva and Siale Hautau, who were both on hand for spring ball. Hautau broke a hand, though, and sat out most of the spring.

Riley said senior Mana Rosa is academically eligible and will open camp alongside senior John Braun as the two starting D-tackles.
