Beckner had a big sophomore year, and his talent is evident on film. Part of that success came from playing varsity as a freshman and getting experience.
"I played tight end on varsity as a freshman. It was tough, but I adjusted to it, got in the weight room and got stronger."
Over the next few years, there is little doubt that schools from across the country will be recruiting this talented youngster, but for right now, most of the attention comes from the Midwest.
The school he hopes to hear more from though, is from way out West.
"USC is my favorite college."
