Beatty in Boulder Next Weekend

The Hawaii pipeline will continue now that assistant coach Brian Cabral has been retained. The only player from the Islands this year CU is targeting is B.J. Beatty from Kahuku High School. Beatty was named the state defensive player of the year and the defensive end is being recruited to CU as an outside linebacker. The Buffs are in his top two.

Height: 6-2
Weight: 210
40 time: 4.7
Bench: 295
Squat: 500
Clean: 245
From: Kahuku, Hawaii
High School: Kahuku

B.J. Beatty had 17 sacks this fall from his defensive end spot and was named first team all-state. Beatty has written offers from New Mexico State, Hawaii and Boise State. He has scheduled all visits for this month. "I am going to Utah this weekend, Colorado next weekend, Boise State on the 20th, and New Mexico State on the 27th," Beatty explained. "I think Utah and Colorado are going to offer me on my visits."

The Islands star says all schools are recruiting him as an outside linebacker. "I get mentally prepared for every game by studying my opponent. The physical part comes naturally. It is the mental part that separates me."

His top two right now are, you guessed it, Boise State and Colorado. "Those are my favorites. I am leaning a little more towards Boise since they have been consistent and I like the community there. They have great support for their team and it is a good program overall.

"If Colorado offers me on the visit it will make the decision very hard. They were in a slump there for a while but with Coach Hawk there now they are getting a boost. He is a winning coach that will do good things there. Coach Cabral is coming to my house next week before the visit. I talked to him last Sunday and he explained the situation to me."

Another thing working for CU is that Beatty grew up a fan of the Big 12. "Texas has always been the team I have watched ever since Priest Holmes was there. So I have always followed the Big 12."

Beatty is fully eligible with a 3.0 core GPA and a qualifying test score.
