LB Beasley: 'I love Coach Leavitt's passion'

The spring evaluation period resulted in dozens of new offers to recruits all over the state. Read on to find out about a 6'2, 235 pound linebacker from Milton HS, that was personally offered by Coach Leavitt three weeks ago. See what he has to say about the Bulls, his future plans and much more. Get informed, only on USFNation.com!

William Beasley from Milton High School is a 6-foot-2 235 pound back who last season racked up 129 tackles, 13 for loss and 6 sacks as a junior. This spring he caught the eye of several colleges including South Florida.

"I text with coach Canales all the time." However, it was the big man himself who presented the offer. "Coach Leavitt came to my school and personally offered me."

Beasley said the offer came just as spring practice was ending.

"Coach told me that I would be crazy not to come play for the Bulls, he said that me and (Josh) Smiley would be stars there. I loved his passion, we had a great talk."

At least once a week Beasley said he talks with his former teammate and current Bull, Josh Smiley. The two of them were good friends while in high school and have stayed connected even though Josh lives a couple hundred miles away.

"We don't talk too much football, he tells me he really likes the city and stuff."

Right now Beasley has close to 10 offers including USF, Southern Miss, Maryland, Iowa St, NC State and FAU. He doesn't have a top 5 yet, but NC State and USF sound like they are near the top.

"I haven't set a schedule for my official visits yet, but I got a good idea of the ones I want. UF and LSU are for sure and I definitely want to see NC State and USF."

This summer Beasley plans to build on what he worked on this spring and that's reacting to the play, getting down hill and filling the hole. Beasley is currently participating in a camp at NC State with two of his teammates. He says that he's already put on 10 pounds this off season and got his weight from 225 to 235.

As always stick with USFNation as we follow William Beasley through the summer and into his senior year. Beasley is one of the top linebackers on USF"s board and he will surely garner more national interest as the year progresses.
