Beckwith, a 6-foot-3, 210-pounder, has been in talks with college coaches about suiting up as a quarterback or defensive end.
"Some colleges like me on both sides of the ball, and then some coaches are just saying quarterback," Beckwith said. "It really doesn't matter to me. I like being labeled as an athlete because it means I can bring more than one thing to the table. If it is defensive line or quarterback, I am just going to go where I fit in and then work it out from there."
Beckwith camped in Baton Rouge in July, where he worked out solely as a passer. During his three-day stay, Beckwith was able to get plenty of hands-on instruction from first-year quarterbacks coach Steve Kragthorpe.
"Coach Kragthorpe taught me a lot," Beckwith said. "I was there for a couple of days and I learned how to do some new things. I felt like they liked me at quarterback, but again, it doesn't matter to me. I will play wherever.
"The coaches said that they would keep in touch. I had already come over to campus in the spring for a couple of practices, but now that we are moving into the football season I expect that the recruiting side will start to pick up."
After Jackson High and Clinton High merged last fall to create East Feliciana High, Beckwith took the reigns at the quarterback spot and led the Tigers on a wild ride.
With a 10-0 record, East Feliciana captured the District 7-2A championship and rode it all the way to the state semifinals, where it to John Curtis.
Beckwith, the District 7-2A Offensive MVP, hit on 110-of-189 passes for 1,582 yards with 18 touchdowns and only four interceptions. He also rushed the ball 167 times for 863 yards and 15 touchdowns.
"It was a great season where everyone put in the hard work, from the coaches to the players," Beckwith said. "We are excited to get back out there this year. I feel like I've gotten a lot better since last year, and I'm ready to show it. I think we are going to do some big things."
East Feliciana is off to a 2-0 start, but the focus will soon have to shift back to recruiting.
While Beckwith said that he plans on remaining uncommitted through his junior season and taking all five official visits next fall, he will at least get the ball rolling in the next couple months.
"I am going to make some unofficial visits and see how some places are," Beckwith said. "I plan on getting over to LSU a couple of times this year.
"I have never been to a game in Tiger Stadium, so that will be big for me. It's on my list of things that I have to get done. Being from Clinton, everyone talks about Tiger Stadium and LSU because they grew up with it. I went to the Spring Game, but that won't do it. I have to come for the real thing."
Beckwith, who carried a 3.2 GPA through his sophomore year, said he plans to schedule his first trip to LSU once the Tigers return from a two-game road stretch.
"I am ready to find out more," Beckwith said. "I've had the spring visits and camped in the summer, but now I want to see what the environment is like during the season."
