Beam commits to MAC school

After a big sophomore season under center for Delta, QB Andrew Beam (6-4, 235) patiently waited for offers to come his way. While he was getting some attention from some western schools, it was a MAC school that recently stepped up and offered the playmaking gunslinger, and after taking an official visit there he decided that the MAC is where he wanted to be.

"I committed to Bowling Green last weekend," an excited Beam told "I took a visit there on January 25th and I committed while I was there.

"I was getting some interest from Sacramento State and from some other schools, but Bowling Green and the coaches there started to contact me a lot recently and they really showed me how important I was to their recruiting class.

"They are losing a quarterback to a transfer and they told me I could come in and challenge for playing time right away and that's really important to me and with their offense it was just the best fit for me."

This past fall, 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 his AA in May and he plans to enroll at Bowling Green for summer school almost immediately after that.

"I want to get out there and start working out with the team right away," Beam said.

He'll sign his letter-of-intent on Wednesday and he'll have three years to play two when he steps on campus.
