Looking The Part

At the spring game, one recruit stood taller than the rest and got attention afterwards from the staff. He's a tight end prospect and he's on the recruiting board.

At 6'6", and now 220lbs, it's easy to see why Erik Beilman stands out in person. He's not that hard to miss. The Brandeis tight end has been making the rounds and doing what he can this spring to catch a first hand glimpse of some programs that have shown interest in him.

"Texas State invited me to their Junior Day and I really liked it. Coach English showed a lot of interest in me. I really like Coach English and how he coaches the position. He talked to me one on one. I talked to my recruiter for my section and he said he'll talk to me soon," said Beilman.

Along with his stop in San Marcos, he's caught a UTSA practice and has picked up interest from North Texas, Incarnate Word, Brown, and Yale. Beilman is also trying to get up to Sooner country, for a camp.

Eirk and his Brandeis teammates start their spring ball next week, April 23rd. He's coming off of a season in where he earned 1st Team All District 27-5A, but Beilman was featured more as a blocker. Don't be surprised if the Broncos look to use his size and take advantage of those mismatches. More balls thrown his way could lead to more college programs picking up interest.
