Ohio Class of 2012 DL One To Watch

One player that stood out during this weekend's opening season of high school games in Ohio is defensive end Karvon Beamon. What makes Beamon one to watch? We break it down.

Long, lean and explosive are the words that best describe Cincinnati (Ohio) Oak Hills defensive end Karvon Beamon. At 6-foot-3, 205-pounds, Beamon shows the burst you want to see from future defensive linemen along with the ability to disrupt offensive game plans.

Beamon has great initial quickness and the ability to handle blockers one-on-one. In this game, he fought off double teams and showed great ability to get off blocks with both quickness and strength.

While Beamon is still a ways from being a finished product, he shows great lateral speed to go with balance and body control.

While Beamon will make a name for himself over the next couple of months, his continued work in the weight room will make him an even bigger prospect by the time spring evaluations start and the combine and camp circuit get under way.
