    Gotta figure this kid grows into a DE.

    In the latest Rivals update Beckum states that he wants to play at the same college with his current Oak Creek teammateRaymond Henderson (who also lists tOSU)

    Henderson has been very clear that he wants to play some place warm. I am probably understating this but if Henderson/Beckum are offered by Cryami (to join their ex-teammate Rhyan Anderson) they would seem to be the favorite.

    Compared to Wisconsin, Ohio is warm. :wink2:

    according to the latest Insiders update, Beckum is up to 6 offers

    it sounds like FSU and Miami are his favorites- FSU has offered while Miami is recruiting him hard

    He is up to 15 offers and tOSU is in his top 4 (along with Miami, FSU and Tenn)

    Hmmmmmmmm everybody was saying that we have no chance with this kid. Well being in his top 4 can't hurt especially if we get him to the Wisky game!!!

    Beckum has developed a relationship w/ Coach Fickell. Remember Luke recruited Beckum's ex-teammate Rhyan Anderson last season (they played video games together). He will make his decision at the AA game in January.

    He is planning on a visit to OSU which increase our chances significantly.

    tOSU, FSU, Miami, and Tenn are his top 4. He is not sure about his 5th school- it could be scUM or Wisky.

    Most think Miami is the favorite for Travis and his teammate Raymond Henderson. They apparantly have wanted to go South, together with Rhyan Anderson for a few years now.

    According to Insiders they both have offers from Miami while Rivals only shows a Beckum offer.

    It is a long shot but at least we are in the running.

    That's good to hear from a source like BK who has become Mr. Pessimistic as of late.

    Beckum lists the same top 4 and would like to add one more school to make an official to. He was considered a Miami lean early on but says that everyone is even and he won't have a favorite until after he takes his visits. Distance won't be a factor in his decision, unfortunately :biggrin:

    where would he play? we dont exactly need safeties, espescially if we are lucky enough to get AMW.

    Well at 6'5", 220 pounds you'd think he'll either end up at OLB or possibly DE if he has the frame to add weight. The kid does have some serious wheels. Kurelic thinks we have a chance but with Rhyan Anderson already at Miami and the Oak Creek staff being Cane backers you gotta think the U is in the driver's seat.
