Beaver Takes In UCLA's Scrimmage

The Compton (Calif.) Dominguez four-star cornerback Brandon Beaver talks about being in Westwood over the weekend and his visit plans...

Compton (Calif.) Dominguez cornerback Brandon Beaver was one of a host of Dons at UCLA's Fall Scrimmage on Saturday.

"It was fun and it's always good to be at UCLA, especially watching them play or practice," said Beaver. "I got a lot of attention from the coaches and I got to meet Diddy. Him and his son (Justin Combs) were hanging out with 1925. I talked a lot with Coach (Mike) Johnson and I still talk to Coach (Jim) Tresey and Coach (Tim) Hundley from time to time and did on Saturday."

One of Beaver's friends, and a fellow Dominguez alum, Aaron Hester, a starting cornerback for the Bruins, caught Beaver's eye.

"It's funny because when me and Alphonso were watching their corners play, he's tall and skinny like Sheldon Price and I'm more built, like Aaron so we were like "that's going to be us in a year or two," said Beaver.

Where that is, remains to be seen. But Beaver is in the process of getting his visits lined up for the fall.

"I'm setting up one with Nebraska right now, and that's about it for the ones I know I will definitely have set for the season," said Beaver. "I might do a UCLA visit and I'll definitely visit Arizona and Washington, just not sure when."

In the meantime, Beaver is focusing on his season, all the way back from a wrist injury that cost him the end of his junior year.

The Dons will scrimmage Lakewood (Calif.) Mayfair on Friday and then open the season against Encino (Calif.) Crespi in the opener, where he'll matchup against his 1925 teammate, Chris Harper.

"We can't wait to get the season started," said Beaver.
