One of the most celebrated recruits of the 2007 class was local talent, Kevin Frahm from Portland (OR) Central Catholic. Frahm committed early in June to the Beavers and never looked back, and he is still very happy with his choice of joining the Oregon State football program.

"It's been tough getting accustomed to the defensive schemes," said Frahm. "It is just a whole new level of playing ball, so it is a lot of things to get accustomed to, and fast.

Now that I've gotten the defensive scheme and I know my role is in the defense it has slowed down a lot."

While picking up the defense was a steep learning curve, Frahm worked hard and also had the help of the veterans along the way.

"I don't think I'd be where I'm at right now without those guys. I have to give them all a ton of credit, like (Jeff) Van Orsow, (Victor) Butler, (Curtis) Coker, (Dorian) Smith, (Pernnell) Booth, (Gerard) Lee, and Slade Norris, they've all just been giving me pointers and giving me hints from a players perspective which piggy backs the phenomenal coaching that I've been receiving from Coach Joe (Seumalo) and Coach Inoke."
