Beecher Takes Visit To Auburn

2013 quarterback prospect B.J. Beecher discusses his Sunday visit to Auburn.

Concord, N.C.—Big 6-7, 190 quarterback B.J. Beecher and his family are very familiar with the world of recruiting after having already gone through the process with older brother Tommy (South Carolina). A prolific pocket passer with over 3,000 yards and 36 touchdowns as a junior, Beecher was at Auburn on Sunday for an unofficial visit and said everything about his first trip to the Plains was great.

"It's awesome," Beecher said. "The people are awesome. The facilities are awesome. It's a great place. It was my first time down there, first visit. I was down for Alabama's junior day and we decided to check out Auburn. It's awesome and really traditional with Toomer's Corner. It's real nice."

It was Beecher's first opportunity to sit down and talk with Auburn's new offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler since he was hired for the Tigers. With a long history of coaching some of the game's top quarterbacks, Beecher said that's something that gets your attention in recruiting.

"It was really cool," Beecher said. "He's a real good guy. He knows what he's talking about. He gave me some good advice. It will be nice to get to know him more.

"It definitely helps out with what you think about him and how you take him," he added. "You know that he knows what he's talking about and what he's doing."

Currently without an offer, Beecher said he and his family are taking their time with the recruiting process and that means visiting as many schools as possible and building relationships with schools and coaches.

"I'm hearing from Duke, N.C. State, Alabama and I just went down to Auburn," Beecher said. "I think I'll hear more from them. That's about it right now. I don't have any offers yet.

"We don't have any plans yet," he added. "We're going to visit some one-day camps and visit a lot of schools to see what they have to offer."

Having an older brother that played college football, Beecher has had the opportunity to experience games at many of the schools he's hearing from already. He counts that as a big plus in his recruiting as well as being able to lean on his older brother for guidance during one of the most important decision-making times of his life.

"It helps me a lot," Beecher said. "He's there for mental support. He'll tell me when I do something wrong and how to fix it. It really helps out a lot."
