After last season's quarterback carousel at Oregon State, Darell Garretson heads into this season as the established starter.
Garretson sat out last season under NCAA rules after transferring from Utah State. For the Aggies in 2014, he threw for 1,140 yards and eight touchdowns in five games when starter Chuckie Keeton was injured. Garretson himself missed seven games that season with a wrist injury.
Garretson emerged in the Beavers' spring game and coach Gary Andersen didn't waste time, naming him as starter shortly thereafter.
