Texas offer: No

Top offers: Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Ohio State

College: Undecided

Scouting Beason: It’s too early to tell which position on offense best suits Beason. He’s an explosive wide receiver with the athleticism and ball skills to be a top slot prospect nationally. He’s also not a bad running back. Beason already holds more than 30 college offers, and at one time was committed to Nebraska. Now he wants to slow down the recruiting process and focus on football. As a sophomore, he had 581 receiving yards and 350 rushing yards and scored 12 total touchdowns.
