Enjoying the fun and sun

MYRTLE BEACH - David Beasley's enjoyed his first trip to Myrtle Beach, it's just a shame he didn't have much time outside of two-a-days.

"I used to stay in Pensacola, Fla.- it's just like this. It's very nice. In Pensacola, it was just off the chain-real nice," he said.

The two-hour morning sessions this week started at 9:30 with afternoons beginning at 1:30 and running for about two hours also. A typical two-a-day practice at Columbus-Carver HS (G.A.) is quite different than those at the O-D All America Bowl.

Instead of hot, humid and in full pads, this weeks been cold, rainy with only shoulder pads and helmets.

"They invited me to play early. I didn't come to any of the camps. I went to the Under-Armour and did really good," Beasley said. "I didn't even come to this camp, and out of the blue they offered me. I heard this one was better because one of my teammates came to this game."

Surrounded by some of the top prep players from across the country, including several who are committed to Clemson, he's confident with his performance during practice.

"I feel pretty good. I like this--it's been fun," Beasley said.

Teamed with players from up and down the East Coast against players primarily from the West Coast, he likes the matchup on Saturday. Beasley points out that his team's made up of mostly players heading to the ACC and SEC, adding a little pre-game trash talk.

"We've got some of the best players in the world, besides the west schools, but I don't they're very good," he said.

Playing on the same team with other Clemson commits, Beasley and DeAndre Hopkins are the only players on offense who are headed to Tigertown next fall.

"These guys are cool. I wanted to room with some of them. It's good to meet them before I know some of the guys I'm staying with," Beasley said.

He'll be in Clemson next weekend on his only official visit. It's the same weekend as the team's banquet and basketball game against Boston College.

Scout.com analysts have spoken highly of Beasley's performance during practice this week. He's rated as a three-star prospect and the no. 29 offensive guard for the class of 2010. He's been offered by South Carolina, Miami, Arkansas, Ole Miss and UCLA. Recently, Georgia came through with theirs.
