Beydoun is the Cherry on Top

Grand Valley State added one final commit and Dearborn Fordson running back Rabeah Beydoun is worth the wait.

How is Dearborn Fordson running back Rabeah Beydoun's signing day going?

"Pretty good," he said. "I just committed to GVSU."

Beydoun is the final commit for Grand Valley State, finishing off the 2011 class for the Lakers. He had some other opportunities, like preferred walk-on offers at Michigan and Syracuse and scholarships from other GLIAC schools, but he says his decision came down to one word.

"Winning. All they do is win and I honestly think I have a great great shot at being one of their elite players. I know I'm getting chance to play there."

Beydoun carried 173 times 1828 yards and 24 touchdowns as a senior, and is a good receiver out of the backfield.

"I'm going in as a running back and from the way everything seems and from the way Coach Brown put it, I might be one of the first true freshmen to play at running back in six years."

It was not just about playing time though, Beydoun says much of what he saw at GVSU is "D2 in name only," including the turf building and the other players.

"That's not a D2 facility. The football they play is D1 football as well. Most guys going there are D1 players who didn't get the scholarship opportunities, but that's why they're so successful."
