Three-star athlete prospect De'Shawn Beck (5-10, 160, 4.4) from Los Angeles (Calif.) Jordan was one of the most impressive receivers we saw during the camp circuit this past spring and summer. It didn't matter who lined up against him, no one was able to freeze him at the line of scrimmage.
Beck is not only football fast, he is football quick and he's very explosive off the ball. He went to the NIKE Camp, USC Rising Stars and the B2G camp, all three camps were loaded with talent and still there wasn't a defensive back that could stay him.
Jordan head coach, Elijah Asante has high expectations on his talented two-way speedster.
"De'Shawn is going to have a great senior season," Asante said. "He's the favorite to win the City Player of the Year.
"I'm proud of the work that De'Shawn put in this past offseason," Asante said. "He recently ran a 4.22.
"You are going to see some incredible things out of him this year. He's a dynamic athlete.
"A whole bunch of schools are looking at him," Asante said. "USC linebacker coach, Ken Norton Jr. called to tell me they are looking at him. He has offers from Arizona and New Mexico State. He may have one from Washington, but I am not sure."
Beck is a two-time all-city selection and is already on the preseason all-city team. He was also honored all-state as a junior. He will be a four-year starter when the season rolls around and was even an all-league selection as a freshman.
As junior, Beck hauled in 72 receptions for 1,141 yards and 15 receiving touchdowns while averaging 15.9 yards a catch. He rushed for 280 yards and two touchdowns. He even played some quarterback throwing for 241 yards and three touchdown passes.
On the defensive side of the ball, Beck accounted for 17 tackles, four interceptions and one sack.
Beck was selected to the Rivals.com California Preseason Top 100 team for the class of 2010 landing as the Golden State's No. 44 prospect at any position.
