Beau Bisharat a four-star athlete who had been committed to Stanford until early this week out of Jesuit High in Carmichael, California, is taking an official visit to Arizona State this weekend.
Bisharat, 6-foot-2, 210 pounds, prefers to play running back in college, while some programs like him more as a linebacker. ASU is going to recruit Bisharat as an athlete who would get to play running back initially.
A Scout300 recruit, Bisharat is ranked No. 283 overall nationally and No. 9 in the West as an athlete.
As a senior, Bisharat rushed for 1,036 yards on 113 carries (9.2 yards per carry) with seven touchdowns. He played a limited role on defense.
When Bisharat committed to Stanford, he did so over Cal and Oregon offers. Since he only re-opened his recruitment this week, it's difficult to determine which other programs schools have serious interested at this juncture. Colorado, Nevada, Pitt and West Virginia have reportedly expressed interest in recent days. Bisharat's father played at Oregon.
ASU has decided since Chip Lindsey became offensive coordinator last month that it wanted to explore the possibility of adding another running back to its 2016 class and Bisharat is one way to accomplish this with versatility.
