New school in the mix for Beaver

Defensive back Brandon Beaver (Compton, Calif./Dominguez) was all set to take his last visit to Utah and then decide the following Monday. Those plans now have changed.

Beaver already has visited Washington and Nebraska and has taken multiple unofficial visits to UCLA. The athlete will still visit the Utes (Jan. 13) but has added a new school to his list.

“I just got offered by Oklahoma Monday night,” Beaver said. “It’s crazy, I’ve never talked to Oklahoma in my life, and then out of the blue, they decide to offer. I don’t know if they just watched some recent film on me or if they talked to some people who watched me, but I’m definitely excited about it, and I’m going to visit there (Jan. 20).

“It was funny, they called Taylor (McNamara) last night and asked about me and asked if he knew me. I just happened to be sitting right next to him for dinner, so Taylor gave them my number, and then I talked with the defensive coordinator, and they told me they were offering and wanted me to visit.”

Beaver, who has been a Washington lean for a few months, said he now plans to commit Jan. 23, the Monday after his Sooner visit.
