Beaver sets announcement date

Compton (Calif.) Dominguez defensive back Brandon Beaver has set his announcement date and will take one more visit before pulling the trigger.

It’s a four team race for Beaver, who has already visited Nebraska and Washington. UCLA is very much in the mix as well and Utah will get one last visit before it’s decision time.

“I’m going to Utah (Jan. 13), and then I’ll announce the following Monday on the 16th,” Beaver said. “All four of these teams are still in it, even Nebraska, where I visited way back during the season. I’m excited to see Utah and learn more about their program. I have a pretty good idea what I want to do, but I still want to visit Utah to make sure I’m doing the right thing.”

Beaver’s recruitment has been well documented. He was set to commit to the Huskies but UW defensive back coach Demetrice Martin left to take the same job with UCLA. It now appears to be a Bruin-Husky battle that at this point, and it looks too close to call.
