Travis Beckum, a 6-foot-5, 225-pound linebacker from Oak Creek, Wisconsin is a "Top 10" Midwest prospect and a national "Top 100" prospect.
Beckum has been on the recruiting radar since 2002 when he was one of the top prospects in the state of Wisconsin as a sophomore.
We asked Oak Creek head coach Joe Koch where he thinks Beckum will end up playing his college football.
"I don't think Travis has a clear-cut leader." Koch said.
"Travis was born in Orange County, California and he moved to Detroit and then Oak Creek so I don't think going away to school will be a problem for him.
"Wisconsin has offered and Travis does like the Badgers so he may not have to go away from home.
"Everyone has offered Travis a scholarship. Florida State, Miami, USC, Oklahoma, Michigan, Tennessee and the list goes on and on."
Beckum could be the nation's best athlete. He's projected as a linebacker but there's nothing he couldn't and doesn't do on a football field.
Travis could add weight and play defensive end in college. He could play tight end or linebacker. Beckum is a difference maker type player that's already drawn comparisons to Kellen Winslow Jr.
Beckum and teammate and fellow blue-chipper Raymond Henderson, we asked Joe Koch to tell us the difference between his two star prospects.
"Travis (Beckum) is more gifted and Raymond (Henderson) is more determined. It's that cut and dried. Two different animals but two very good animals if you know what I mean." Koch said.
Are the Badgers in the Mix?
