"It's a dream come to true to play in the SEC and especially going somewhere that the head coach wants me," Beckham said. "Playing the SEC is big to me."
After originally signing with IUPUI last year, he opted to go to a prep school for a year and it worked out, as he improved his game and earned a high major scholarship.
This past weekend Beckham, who originally went to Louisville (Ky.) Ballard, took a visit to Starkville (Miss.) and he came away with a great impression of the team and campus.
"I hung out with the players a lot and my mom was down and she liked it a lot," Beckham said. "Once I got the OK from my mom I felt like it was the place for me."
