Cole Beaty of Bakersfield (Calif.) Centennial talks about his first offer from the Nevada Wolf Pack.

Cole Beaty Beaty of Bakersfield (Calif.) Centennial High School struck gold in the Silver State during his trip to Reno: he landed his first scholarship offer.

The 2017 athlete received offer No. 1 from the Nevada on April 2 following his Junior Day appearance. Beaty said the Wolf Pack coaches liked what they saw from him during his visit.

“It was at the end of Junior Day when coach [Lester] Erb told me that coach [Brian] Polian wanted to talk. So we went in his office and he asked me some questions and then told me he was all in and offered me a full scholarship,” Beaty said. “I feel numb and truly blessed that an elite program like Nevada would take the time to do their homework and take a chance on me.”

Beaty, who racked up 1,486 all-purpose yards and scored 15 touchdowns last season said that Erb is the point man recruiting him to Reno.

“They're recruiting me as a slot/outside guy,” Beaty said.

The rising senior currently holds a 3.0 grade point average and is yet to take the SAT and ACT.
