The minute Victor Beasley walks onto the Clemson campus, he will be in the mix for one of the reserve tight end spots in 2010.

Despite the exhausted eligibilities of of All-ACC tight end Michael Palmer and seniors Rendrick Taylor and Durrell Barry, Beasley is counting his receptions before they're thrown.

"I'm just looking to get on the field and help wherever I can," Beasley told CUTigers in a recent interview. "Probably most of my first year will be special teams. I'm just going to go in and do whatever I can to get on the field and help the team."

During his senior season, he had 69 tackles and recovered a couple of fumbles on defense and rushed for 828 yards on offense.

Beasley didn't play basketball this winter, but did run track in the spring. On the track, he qualified for the Georgia 2-A triple jump and was a part of the 4x400 relay team that also qualified.

"I've been lifting weights and just trying to stay in shape," Beasley said. "I've just been doing what the school's sent me. I just finished up with track last week. I'm just going to start working out on my own. I've been going out there with some of my teammates who are also going to college."

This year, he was voted student of the year at Adairsville. Beasley and his 2010 classmates are done with exams and getting ready for Friday's graduation.

His plan is to move to Clemson in late June and enroll in two summer courses.

"I'm excited, but I'm going to miss all of my friends, though," Beasley said.

But before he knows it, camp will be in full swing. Beasley's already given a little bit of thought as to what life as a college football player will be like.

"I'm excited about taking my game to another level. I'm excited to get up there and see what it is like," he said. Top Stories
