Beh recaps recruitment, MD visit

Noah Beh has been quietly accumulating offers in northwest Pennsylvania. Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Maryland and Temple are among the schools that have offered the offensive lineman from Scranton (Pa.) Scranton Preparatory.
"Temple first started recruiting me with coach Addazio but he left and went to Boston College," said the 6-foot-7, 245-pound Beh. "The new staff is still recruiting me but I don't know too much about them.
"I've been talking with Pitt and Coach Bollinger a lot," he said. "I like what he has been telling me so far. I tried to get to their junior day but I couldn't so I'm trying to set up a day in the spring so I can come up."
Last weekend, Beh made the trip to College Park to take part in Maryland's junior day.
"I didn't know too much about Maryland," said Beh. "I know Coach Dunn has been recruiting me. He came to one of my games and Coach Gattuso came to my basketball practice. He seemed pretty interested.
"On Saturday, we saw the football facilities, had a position meeting, learned about their tradition, ate with the coaches, met a few of the players and went to their awesome basketball game against Duke," he said. "Maryland is probably in the middle of the pack right now. I still have to visit a couple of schools but it was an alright trip."
Beh talked about two other schools that are recruiting him pretty hard as well.
"The other schools that are talking to me a lot are Boston College and Penn State," Beh said. "Both are recruiting me for offensive line. I like the coaches that have been recruiting me from both schools. I liked Boston College when I went up there for their junior day and I'm looking forward to checking out Penn State."
Perhaps one of the reasons that these schools like Beh is because of his versatility.
"I don't really have a preference between offensive or defensive line," he said. "I'll play whatever I need to so I can help the team win. I have more experience at defensive end and it's more fun in high school but my future might be better served if I play on the offensive line."
Beh knows which factors are going to help him weigh each school against another.
"I don't really have a dream school but I'm looking at the coaching staff," said Beh. "I'm also looking at who else they are recruiting so I can figure out who else I'd be playing with. I'm also definitely looking at their academics. I don't know what I what to do but I know I need to get a solid education."
Other than his visit to Penn State on February 23, Beh wants to take visits to Pitt, Syracuse and Rutgers.
