Two standout for OG Beasley

David Beasley, a 6-4, 316-pound offensive guard from Columbus (GA) Carver, holds more than a dozen scholarship offers. Despite heavy recruiting attention, the run-paving offensive lineman currently favors two schools – one from the Big East; the other from C-USA.

Which two programs stand out for David Beasley, one of the top offensive line prospects in Georgia?

"Louisville and Southern Miss," Beasley said. "I like the coaches at both places. They've been talking to me the most. I haven't visited either school but I plan on visiting them both. Southern Miss and Louisville have both visited me this spring."

Both Louisville and Southern Miss have offered Beasley a scholarship. The Cardinals, thanks to assistant coach Jay Johnson, have developed a good relationship with the monster lineman.

"Coach Johnson, the tight end coach, really got me interested in Louisville," Beasley said. "They've been showing me a lot of love and they really think I could play good ball. I've always liked the Cardinals."

Besides Louisville and Southern Miss, Beasley holds more than a dozen scholarship offers, including from UCLA, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Memphis, South Carolina and South Alabama. Though he likes the Cards and Eagles, Beasley doesn't plan to narrow the list until next fall. Beasley said he plans to take all five official visits with Louisville and Southern Miss ‘definitely' getting two of those visits.

"I'm looking for a school with a good criminal justice program," Beasley said. "I also (care) what their record is, how good they play and if I'd be in a bowl every year."

Though Beasley plays offensive tackle in high school, college coaches that are recruiting him project him to play guard at the next level. "They say that they like that I'm big and athletic," Beasley said. "I can run, move around and make blocks. I've got good balance and I don't stop until the whistle blows."
