Beaumont plans to do-it-all for Louisville

Louisville Male HS will hold a noon press conference for the four-star's LOI signing

Scout.com four-star prospect Doug Beaumont will start a new chapter in his life when he signs his Letter of Intent with the University of Louisville football program on Wednesday. After receiving a scholarship offer from U of L in April, the 5-foot-9, 185-pound athlete verbally committed to the Cardinals following their 31-7 win over Miami in September and has been looking forward to making his pledge official ever since.

The Louisville Male High School product will make official in front of family, friends and teammates at noon on Wednesday in the school's alumni room.

"I'm pretty anxious about it," Beaumont said on Tuesday evening. "I'm looking forward to it and I'll be relieved that it's finally over."

As a senior, Beaumont led the Bulldogs to an 11-1 record, rushing for 1,169 rushing yards and 24 touchdowns. He also pulled in 39 receptions for 550 yards and 8 touchdowns. He has racked up countless honors, including the state's Mr. Football, Paul Hornung, Roy Kidd and Kentucky's Gatorade Player of the Year awards.

Also the starting point guard for the Male basketball team, Beaumont admits that he's been thinking quite a bit about his future as a Cardinal.

"I've been thinking about that a lot lately," he said. "I'm going to try to come in and play as a freshman and do whatever I can to help the team win."

After earning All-State accolades for his play at running back, receiver and cornerback as both a junior and senior, Beaumont is looking forward to continuing that type of versatility on the college level.

"I'm going to come in as a receiver, which I like," said Beaumont. "We'll see how that goes and if I need to I can play defense at cornerback. The special teams coach talked to me about trying out to return kicks and punts too."

Beaumont is ranked as the nation's 23rd top receiver prospect by Scout.com.
