Brigham Young University adds 21st grid commitment
Beck, who will be a senior at Vista Murrieta High School, made his announcement on Tuesday. He had scholarship offers from Nebraska and Utah and recruiting attention this summer from Arizona and Oregon. The Nebraska offer came two months ago and the Cougars made their official offer second.
Beck is attending a SOAR seminar on BYU's campus this week. It is a series of classes to prepare high school students to increase their ACT or SAT scores. Beck, who is half Samoan, is already qualified with his test scores and grades.
Beck had 70 tackles and 11 sacks this past year and gained 432 yards and 10 touchdowns as a quarterback and fullback, according to Scout.com.
Beck is the second high school recruit to pledge to BYU coach Bronco Mendenhall in the past few days. Gary Nagy, a safety from Kahuku High School in Oahu, Hawaii, committed to the Cougars on Sunday.
The Cougars planned on signing 22 or 23 recruits in February 2007. A normal recruiting class has an allotment of 25 scholarships but BYU's numbers tend to fluctuate with arrival and departure of LDS missionaries.
