Anthony Beard, a two star linebacker from Lumberton, Texas, was scheduled to board a plane early this morning and head to Boulder to check out the Buffs and see the CU campus this weekend, his father told Scout.com on Friday.
Beard has scholraship offers from CU, Colorado State, Missouri, SMU, Arizona and Wyoming. He is expecting offers from Baylor and Texas Tech. He grew up as a fan of the Red Raiders, who might have a leg up on recruiting him even though they haven't offered him yet.
Beard is rated the 58th best middle linebacker in the 2010 class.
Watch video of Beard in action in the following clips.
Colorado commit Daniel Munyer, a 6-foot-3, 265-pound offensive lineman from Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, Calif., also had scheduled a trip to Boulder this weekend.
Munyer committed to CU last month.
You can watch video of him in the following clips.
We will have more on these recruiting visits on Sunday or early next week.
