Beam hopes big season translates into offers

A signal-caller that had a big season in the NCFA this past fall was San Joaquin Delta QB Andrew Beam (6-4, 235), but he hasn't received the recruiting attention he thought he would. He's remaining patient though and hopes to see some increased attention after schools recruiting him complete their bowl games and can then put their full attention on recruiting.

"It's been a little frustrating, but it is what it is," Beam told JCFootball.com recently. "I have a lot of D-2 schools who are after me and want me to visit, but I want to hold out for some D-1 schools.

"Oregon State, Kansas State and Sacramento State have been the schools talking to my coaches about me and asking for my transcripts.

"Kansas State wants one of our receivers, but they saw me play and they seemed interested so we'll see what happens with them."

For the season, Beam went 219 of 332 and threw for 2,603 and had 27 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. He also had 285 yards and four touchdowns on the ground.

"I'm a threat with my arm and my legs, but I would rather sit back and pick defenses apart and let my receivers take he hits," Beam said with a chuckle. "I can move around and keep plays alive or I can run when it's necessary for me to do that."

Beam will finish up his two-year degree in May and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.

We'll continue to follow Beam's progress with recruiting and update things as he gets ready to take his visits.
