Coming out of July it looked like David Beatty had his final group of schools set and ready to go. However after giving it more thought, Beatty has now decided to open his mind to all options, and is considering any school that is interested in him.
“David is going to re-open his recruitment,” said Philly Pride AAU Coach Kamal Yard. “I just feel that his ability and his recruitment haven’t matched up, and Dave and myself have talked he has decided to open his mind to all opportunities.”
While the schools who were initially considered such as Indiana, Maryland, Georgetown, LaSalle, UConn, UCLA, Virginia, and Temple will be remain under consideration, the options are officially open and Beatty is in no hurry to make a decision.
“Right now I’d say it is likely that he makes a spring decision,” said Yard. “With that said if the right school comes in and Dave likes them and is ready to commit then it could be a fall decision, you never know.”
This past week Beatty made an official visit to Georgetown, and he did like what he saw in Washington D.C.
“I know they are telling people they are going to play faster this year, and I think that fits Dave well,” said Yard. “They are a school that has been recruiting him for a long time and they are definitely recruiting him hard.”
Yard continued about Georgetown, “They opened their new practice facility and I know that is a big deal. It is definitely an option that Dave has and is very interested in.”
Another school that has been in a lot recently is Indiana.
“Indiana and Chuck Martin have been by a lot,” said Yard. “They are in there strong and have been keeping close tabs on him. I spoke with Chuck this week, and I know Indiana is very interested.”
With Beatty keeping his options open, this recruitment seems destined to have some twists before it is all said and done, but some schools continue to make Beatty a top priority as the season approaches.null
