Beasley Considering Duke Visit

Victor Beasley, three-star outside linebacker from Adairsville, Ga., was by far the best looking athlete on the field at the Mountain Brook 7-on-7 tournament Thursday afternoon. He had coaches from every team in the tournament blown away by his performance on both sides of the ball.

"Today was a good day," said Victor Beasley. "I thought we did pretty good. We came out here and stepped up to the plate. We competed well, and I thought we did a good job."

"I felt like I did pretty good. I worked as an outside linebacker and wide receiver. I like playing outside linebacker. I feel like I can be atheltic at the position and make plays."

"I am being recruited as a jumbo athlete. I am 6-foot-4, 220-pounds right now. Schools have been saying I can play in the slot, tight end or linebacker. I think I would like to stick to outside linebacker."

Beasley has visited Alabama and Clemson as of late. He is considering a visit to Duke before the start of the season.

"My main focus right now is trying to help my team out and get ready for the season," he said. "I thought about making a decision before the season started, but right now it looks like I will probably wait until after the season."

Beasley did not hesitate when asked a leader for his signature.

"Alabama is most definitely still my leader," he responded. "I love the atmosphere down there. I really like the fact that coach Saban has put so many players in the NFL. I like how the players down there play with enthusiasm.

Beasley is also interested in Clemson and Duke.

"I went up to Clemson for a visit," he stated. "I really liked it up there. The coaches treat you well. I connected pretty good with the players. I really like their facilities."

"I also like Duke. I know if I went there and got a degree I would be set for life."

Auburn and Louisville have offered Beasley as well.

"I met the offensive coordinator from Louisville," he added. "We have been talking for the last few months and have become pretty good friends."

"I am still keeping Auburn in the mix because my dad went there. They have a good school also."
