Defensive end/linebacker B.J. Beatty (6-2, 205, 4.9) from Kahuku, Hawai'i went out and proved that he was one of the Island's best for the class of 2006. After earning all-state and all-league honors for his sophomore and junior seasons, he was selected the State Defensive Player of the Year for his senior season of 2005.
According to Beatty's Dad, Byron Beatty, his talented son has three offers from Hawai'i, Boise State and New Mexico State with another offer pending.
The offer that is pending comes from the school where Beatty in on his way to at the present moment, Colorado.
"According to Colorado linebacker coach Brian Cabral there could be an offer this weekend," Byron Beatty said. "Why else would they trip and pay the expense to get him there."
"I don't think he will commit, however," Beatty said. "I'm pretty sure he will be taking visits to both Boise State and New Mexico State."
The word is Colorado and Boise State are the front runners for Beatty's services. Hawai'i is more than likely out because he wants to go away for schools. Mr. Beatty said that his son has already notified Hawai'i of his decision to go to mainland for his education and continuing his athletic career.
If Beatty chooses Colorado he won't be the first. He has great bloodlines. His uncle is Chris Naeole played his college ball at CU.
