Bisharat enjoys brief visit to UO

Carmichael (Calif.) Jesuit athlete Beau Bisharat made an unofficial visit to Oregon last week. How did he enjoy his time in Eugene? Find out below

Four-star athlete Beau Bisharat has been making the rounds this spring and visiting college programs he could potential be playing for next season. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Carmichael (Calif.) Jesuit prospect stopped by Oregon last Wednesday for an unofficial visit, and while he wasn’t on campus for long, he enjoyed what he got to see.

“I got a little tour,” he said. “I got to watch practice, which was cool, and then I kinda sat down with some coaches and discussed where they were in recruiting me and what they thought about me and all that.”

During practice, Bisharat marveled at the pace of the practice and was impressed by the hustle from the players and athletic staff alike.

“As soon as the ball is snapped the ball boys are sprinting to grab the ball and get to the next play,” he said. “That’s pretty cool.”

Bisharat’s father played with Oregon defensive coordinator Don Pellum in college and the two spent part of the day reminiscing about old times. When Beau got his turn with the coaches, he learned what they liked about him and where they see him fitting in at UO.

“I think they want me to play outside linebacker,” he said. “They like my size just because the offenses that teams are running right now, I mean, you need smaller linebackers and linebackers that can cover a guy one-on-one and also make a tackle.”

Intrigued by the Eugene climate and wanting to compete at the highest level, Bisharat admitted his interest in Oregon is high. He still needs to land an offer, but that could change when Pellum evaluates him next month.

“It’s definitely a possibility for me to go there,” he said. “Obviously they have to extend an offer first and we can get all that squared. It sounds like they’re pretty close to doing that. They just need to see me move in person.”
