American Canyon HS ATH Malik Beachum (American Canyon, CA) was in Boise last week for an unofficial visit and says his visit to Boise State was a "great" experience. The talented ATH is still looking for his first offer, but Boise State and a number of other schools will be sending coaches down to the Bay Area to take a look at Beachum during spring football.

"It was a great trip," he said. "We got there on Thursday and left on Saturday," he added.

"Right when I got there I got to watch Coach Lake and the DBs at practice," he stated. "At Boise State, practice has the same energy from start to finish. The fourth-string guys play just as hard as the first-string and that was great to see. They compete the entire practice and you can see why they win championships."

"I had an individual meeting with Coach Lake and Coach Petersen," said Beachum. "Coach Lake likes his DBs to be physical and good in the classroom as well. They're big on academics at Boise State. With Coach Petersen, he talked about the recruiting process and how they just don't throw offers out there like they do at other schools. They offer the guys that fit their needs. They call those guys the OKGs."

He went on to say that Boise State will be sending a few members of the staff down to the Bay Area once spring football starts back up in a couple months.

"Like Coach Petersen said, they just don't throw offers out there," he said. "They told me they'll be sending some coaches down to watch me during spring ball and then they might offer. A lot of other schools have said the same thing, so that makes me want to go out there and perform well."

"What I like about Coach Lake is that he has the NFL experience and has coached a few Pro-Bowlers as well," said Beachum. "He knows a lot about DBs and defense in general. He's just a real smart guy."

Beachum will also be back in Boise this summer for the annual football camp.

"I'm going to camp at Boise, Oregon and SC," he said.

So, what does Malik Beachum (5'10, 165, 4.61) bring to the gridiron?

"A lot of coaches like my ball skills and how I come up to make the tackle," he said. "I make plays, I'm quick, and it helps my ball skills at DB since I also play WR," he added.
