Long Beach Poly Standout Tyric LeBeauf Adds Sixth Scholarship Offer

With Colorado jumping on board last week, Tyric LeBeauf now has a half dozen college options, including four in the Pac-12...


Tyric LeBeauf admits he has not had time yet to do research into his latest offer, which came from Colorado recently.

"Since that offer just came in last week, I don't really know much about them yet," the 6-foot-2, 175-pounder from Long Beach (Calif.) Poly said of the Buffaloes. "I do know they like my length and that they have had a lot of long corners that have been successful.

"One of Colorado's coaches was out at our practice and he called the defensive backs coach (ShaDon Brown) and told him about me and said they needed to pull the trigger. He really liked how I play."

Arizona, Hawaii, San Jose State, Utah and Washington State are the other programs that have stepped up with an offer to LeBeauf so far.

"Right now I like Washington and Utah," he said. "I took a visit to Utah and even though I am just a recruit, they made me feel like I was at home. I think it is the Poly connections that make Utah feel more like a traditional school. Everybody there seems like they are on the same page. They make everybody feel like they are brothers, like you are part of a big family."

LeBeauf plans to attend a camp at Washington, his "dream school," in June but he has not lined up any summer unofficial visits yet.

"I would like to take some more trips, though, so by the end of the summer I can sit down and talk it over with my uncle, who is going to be helping me with my decision," he said. "I feel like I should pretty much know after I take a few more visits."

Listed as an athlete on Scout.com, LeBeauf believes every college that is recruiting him projects him as a cornerback for the next level.

"Colleges like my length, how I compete and they like my speed," he said. "I am long. That allows me to match up with quick receivers, even in the slot, because I can make up distance with my length."
