Beal Dedicated to Improvement

As the younger brother of a 2012 NBA draft pick, Bryon Beal has often felt pressure. Beal talks with Fox Sports Next about how he stood out in summer football camps, and how he plans to get noticed heading into the fall.

Inspired by the success of his NBA-bound older brother, Bradley Beal, Chaminade Prep (Mo.) offensive lineman Bryon Beal has ramped up his efforts to get recruiting looks.

The 2013 prospect doesn't hold any offers yet, but he has attended camps for Missouri and Indiana, and received some positive feedback.

"I was told I was very flexible and had great footwork," Beal said.

The 6-foot-3, 375-pound lineman was also told to focus on something else – cutting weight to be successful at the next level. And Beal has taken that suggestion to heart.

On top of strength and conditioning workouts with his high school team, Bryon and his twin brother Byron head to the basketball courts to run sprints with the hoops team.

"We have been doing this for four weeks now," Beal said. "And every Saturday morning we go up to a park and run hills."

When asked about what motivates his offseason improvement, he replied, "I really want to take it to the next level and play in college. I would like to make first team all-Metro Catholic Conference and get more recruiting looks like Bradley did. I can't wait to see how much my hard work pays off."
