The Oregon State Beavers trotted out defensive end Dylan Wynn at fullback for one play against the Arizona State Sun Devils last weekend, and it appears that the experiment won’t be just a one-time deal. Wynn took some snaps at fullback during practice on Wednesday, and head coach Mike Riley said he thinks the big defensive end can help boost OSU’s anemic rushing attack.

Riley discussed Wynn’s two-way status with The Oregonian:

I’ve been thinking about it, and he’s been asking about it for awhile. He was one of the most ferocious guards I’ve ever seen play in high school, he was terrific. He can help us with some of the stuff.


I think Jim Harbaugh really proved big-time (that it will work) with the linebacker-fullback (Owen Marecic), who was such a good player for them.

OSU fans certainly hope that Wynn can have even a shred of the success on offense that UCLA linebacker Myles Jack has achieved in 2013. Jack has carried the ball 19 times for 179 yards and five touchdowns for the Bruins.
