Male's Doug Beaumont receives first offer

A 1st team All-State performer as a junior at Louisville's Male Traditional High School, all-purpose athlete Douglas Beaumont is drawing high-major interest...

It wasn't a question about if a scholarship offer would come for Louisville Male all-purpose athlete Douglas Beaumont, but when. Last week, the 5-foot-9, 175-pound junior received his first of many more to come.

"Kentucky offered me last week," Beaumont told "It feels good to get that first one and I know that it will help open up doors at other places too."

Louisville, Notre Dame, South Carolina and Tennessee are among the many others expressing early interest in the first team All-State selection.

As a junior Beaumont totaled 54 catches for 881 yards and 7 touchdowns, while also rushing for an additional 1,100 yards and 28 touchdowns.

"He's capable of playing several different positions in college, but I think his best game is probably on offense," Male High School head coach Bob Redman said of Beaumont. "He has an unbelievable vertical – he plays like a 6-foot-4 type of guy. His hands are second to none and he's extremely durable. He's fearless and isn't afraid to take the big hit. I think that he'll probably be a wide receiver on the Division I level. He plays a lot bigger than his body would indicate. He's going to be one of those Deion Branch type of guys – he'll make a circus catch more just every now and then."

This spring he'll put his abilities on display as he attends the Louisville combine on May 20, as well participating in a number of seven-on-seven competitions.
