ATH has Tide on top
Adairsville (GA) athlete Victor Beasley has the versatility to line up at wide receiver, tight end, defensive end, linebacker and even safety and with a growing offer list, the three-star prospect has just as many options when it comes to where he'll spend his college career. After declaring Alabama an early favorite, Beasley has made plenty of visits and received plenty of new offers. Where does the Crimson Tide stand now?
"I've been traveling to a lot of camps this summer to try and improve my strength and speed and just my overall skill level," said Beasley, rated the nation's No. 50 athlete. "I visited Clemson recently too and that was a nice visit."
"Alabama is still definitely my number one right now. The game day atmosphere is amazing, the facilities are up there with the best I've seen, the coaches take good care of the players and everything about it just makes me feel at home."
Beasley said a major reason for Alabama's lead is his recruiting coach, running backs coach Bobby Williams.
"Coach Williams is recruiting me and he's a really good and humble guy. He encourages his players but he also pushes them to make sure they get the best out of their ability."
While the Tide is on top for Beasley at the moment, there are several other schools still very much in the mix for the 6-foot-5, 213-pounder's services.
"Right now the top five in order would be Alabama, Clemson, Auburn, Duke and Florida. Alabama's got a pretty strong lead but all the rest of them are pretty close."
"I've been saying for a while that I thought I would make a decision before the season started but now I'm not 100 percent sure of that anymore. I really think I ought to take all my official visits before I make my final decision. I will be taking several visits this summer before school starts back up so hopefully I can learn a lot on those trips and come close to a decision."
Beasley boasts a 4.47 second forty time and a 39-inch vertical leap.
