You could say Oregon State's recruiting class has the Aloha Spirit.
Several of the Beavers' top prep recruits are from Hawaii, including defensive end Lamone Williams, defensive tackle Kalani Vakameilalo and athlete Fitou Fisiiahi.
Williams, at 6-foot-3 and 240 pounds, helps fill a hole left by the departure of Scott Crichton, who left Oregon State early to enter the NFL draft. The Beavers got another defensive end in Glyeb Ewing, a 6-foot-5, 235-pound prospect out of Iowa.
The Beavers also got letters of intent Wednesday from a pair of quarterbacks: Marcus McMaryion from Dinuba, Calif., and Nick Mitchell of Snoqualmie, Wash. Also waiting in the wings is Luke Del Rio, a transfer from Alabama who has enrolled at Oregon State but might have to sit out a year because of NCAA rules.
