Oregon State WR Catchings gets extra year

Oregon State receiver Darrell Catchings has been granted a medical hardship season and will be a redshirt junior this fall.

Catchings played in just two games last season (Cincinnati and Arizona) due to injuries to his ankle and wrist.

The Escondido, Calif., native has 42 receptions for 505 yards and one touchdown for his career. He has started 10 games and enters spring practice projected to compete for the starting duties at split end.
