Recruiting: Miami Making A Move On Beasley

After being named MVP of the Waco Combine, West Orange-Stark Bad-As-It-Gets Kenneth Beasley considered himself as nothing more than "just being blessed." A day later, the small school superstar, and's newest Combine MVP, picked up a full ride offer from the Miami Hurricanes.

And get this: Beasley said the coach (Mario Cristobal) making the offer wants him "to play wide receiver for the U..."

"Coach Cristobal said their offer is strictly [for] receiver," Kenneth Beasley told

Dean: And the Texas offer you received is for?

"Corner... and wide receiver," the 5-9.5, 163-pounder said. "So if I want to play DB in college, (Texas) would be THE school..."

"(Texas is) losing two DBs this year," added Beasley, as if to cement the fact that if he chooses to move from his more familiar (wide receiver) position to cornerback, UT is the only option. Alternately, if the playmaker from the Golden Triangle decides he wants to stick at receiver, UM might be another option.

Beasley, on what his next move might be, said the Miami TE coach/ace recruiter really wants him to find a way to get out to one of the 'Canes summer camp dates.

"I'm going to try to do that," Beasley said, "I'm going to try to get up there then (June, or July) -- not sure, though, if I'll be able to."

What has the Scout Waco Combine MVP considering Larry Coker and Gang?

"It's just all the guys from Houston that play there, really all the great athletes they have there, and how successful they have been at Miami."

So where does UT sit now?

"Texas is still my No. 1," Beasley pronounced, without a degree of hesitation or shakiness in his voice.

"It's just going to have to play out," Beasley added. "Because Texas is my school, I have friends there, like it, and beyond that, it's family there."

"That's one school that's definitely going to have my back," he continued. "There's just something about it that they have and that's why I committed to them."
