Devils Step Up With First Offer To GA ATH

One of the more impressive athletes in North Georgia got a big phone call from Duke's Matt Luke on Wednesday. The first day college coaches could call 2010 prospects was the day this junior picked up his first offer.

"I didn't even know coaches could call today, but Coach Luke called me and offered me a scholarship," said Victor Beasley. "It is my first offer and I am very excited about it. I have been waiting over a year for the first offer and it came today."

The 6-foot-4, 210 pound athlete that claims a 4.59 in the 40 yard dash said Duke offered him as a wide receiver. He could end up there, tight end, outside linebacker, or even defensive end on the next level.

"It doesn't matter to me where I play. I just want to do whatever helps the team. It would be fun to play receiver, but I will play anywhere."

David Cutcliffe hopes to turn the Duke program around and to make them a competitor in the ACC. Beasley sees them improving already and he thinks they are on their way up.

"I think they had a good year last year and they are starting to get some good athletes into their program. I think they are getting better and they are going to have a good football program soon."

He also likes what Duke is all about in the classroom.

"They have great academics and that would be a great degree to have," the Adairsville athlete said.

Now he thinks another strong academic program could be close to pulling the trigger with an offer. This one is out of the SEC.

"I visited Vanderbilt last week and they are showing a lot of interest in me now. I think they could be the next school to offer me."

Now on April 15, Beasley has a new top three and the Blue Devils secured their spot with the offer. Vanderbilt and Alabama are the other two schools high on his list at this time.
