DiDomenico Ruled Ineligible
CORVALLIS -- Senior offensive guard Keith DiDomenico was been ruled ineligible for the 2001 football season, it was announced Tuesday.
DiDomenico, 6-5, 304, a three-year letterman from Sprague High School in Salem was listed No. 1 on the depth chart during spring drills. DiDomenico had redshirted during the 2000 season after starting at center in 1999 and '98. He earned a letter as a freshman in 1997 while playing left guard.
Because he is a fifth-year senior, DiDomenico's career is over at Oregon State.
Senior letterman Paul Davidian will move up to No. 1 at right guard for the start of fall camp.
