Midyear JUCO DT signs with OSU

SIALE HAUTAU

THE D-TACKLE FROM Snow College verballed to Oregon State in November but on Thursday he made it official. Siale Hautau signed with the Beavs and will join Oregon State in January.

Siale Hautau (pronounced see-ALL-a HOW-tau) is built low to the ground at 6-0, 315-pounds. He registered 20 tackles, including seven tackles-for-loss and three sacks in seven games in 2012. Hautau took a two-year LDS Mission to Guatemala prior to his arrival at Snow.

"Siale will have an immediate opportunity to impact our team with the losses of Castro Masaniai and Andrew Seumalo," Riley said.

Hautau is a native of Salt Lake City, graduating from Skyline High where he was a 5A First Team All-State selection as a senior.

Hautau is the second player to sign with Oregon State during the mid-year transfer signing period for junior college players, joining Steven Nelson, a cornerback from College of the Sequoias.

Oregon State continues to prepare for the Dec. 29 Valero Alamo Bowl showdown vs. the Texas Longhorns in San Antonio. Tickets are on sale at BeaverTickets.com or by contacting OSU at 1-800-GO-BEAVS between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays. If you're interested in becoming a new season ticket holder for a 2013 home schedule that includes Stanford, Washington, USC, Colorado, Hawai'i and Eastern Washington please contact the OSU Ticket Office to place a $50 per seat deposit. Current season ticket holders will receive their renewal information by Feb. 1.
