Glades Central, Fla., might have one of the top defenses in the state of Florida and their leader is linebacker William Beckford.
Beckford, who stands at 6-foot-1, helped lead his defense to a shutout this weekend with two solo sacks and two assisted sacks.
His play on the field has brought some big time programs into his recruiting.
“Lately I’ve talked to Boston College, Rutgers, Georgia,” Beckford said. “But I’ve been busy and missed calls from Pittsburgh, Florida State, West Virginia and Minnesota.”
Another team that has come into the picture for Beckford is Kansas State.
“I have talked some with their linebacker coach,” Beckford said. “I like being recruited by the coach that I will be working with next year, some schools have a receivers coach or someone else recruit me.”
Beckford already has offers from Rutgers, Boston College, Ohio State, Georgia, Minnesota, North Carolina State and Kansas State.
