1. Stanford transfer Patrick Skov arrived to campus on Friday following his graduation from Stanford June 14. Skov will pursue an MBA and compete for a starting B-back job.
Skov’s arrival will give him time this summer to work with quarterback Justin Thomas, in particular to hone their technique going through the mesh on triple-option plays.
On his Instagram account, Skov posted an impressive picture from his graduation from Stanford.

Stansbury hired as Oregon State AD
Oregon State hired Tech grad Todd Stansbury as its athletic director last week. Stansbury lettered in football in 1981 and earned an industrial management degree in 1984. He later served as assistant AD at Tech 1990-95. He had previously served as AD at Central Florida, where his interim replacement is another former Tech employee of note – football coach George O’Leary.
Stansbury is among the highest-ranking sports administrators to graduate from Tech. Two others are Jaime Weston-Parouse, who is NFL vice president of brand and creative and a former Tech volleyball player in the early ’90s, and Baltimore Ravens senior vice president of football administration Pat Moriarty, who lettered as a running back 1973-77.
