I haven’t seen or heard much about him lately. Does anyone know how he has progressed during the ’17 season?

    Was redshirted, but he’ll have a step up above the incoming Frosh. He’ll get some playing time this year for sure.

    I really believe he is going to be a very good player for us this year. He has the skills to be very good but I don't know about the Want To with his mindset but I hope so.

    Do you have a reason to doubt his "Want To" ?

    I said that because I haven't heard anything for sure on him & he is still young & haven't played much

    The reason you haven’t heard anything is because he did come in late and you never hear much about kids who are on scout team that redshirt. Look for him to make waves this spring as he will be on an even playing field from being their for workouts and such.

    It was a joke from him asking if he had a reason to doubt his want to and he replied something similar as your post. I viewed it as a chess game. No worries and just messing around.

    I hope I am wrong, but I don't. He didn't start for his (very good) high school team.

    Ok, without cheating and looking......Beal is an OLB?

    He was recruited as an OLB however I thought I read he has been moved to DE.

    As a far away Dawg that tries to stay up, I get tickled when I see the G game and can finally associate the kid and his jersey number to all the stuff we said about him even before he signed.

  • ThelordjohnsonThelordjohnson Posts: 704 ✭✭✭✭ Senior

    @CaliforniaDawg Who did he play for his Senior year cause from what i remember his transferring to three schools in one year affected him asking with his homeschool background.

    But honestly I think he will be a special guy at OLB. He is on my watch list more than anytime with the departures. He and Wilson got in late and missed a lot of good practice time.

    With Walker and Grant sliding up the depth chart, he could/should slide into the backup, pass rush specialist roles that Walker and Grant provided last year. Adam Anderson may provide some serious competition for that spot though.

  • BiggerBadDawgBiggerBadDawg Posts: 201 ✭✭✭ Junior

    IMO. I think Beal is going to be really good. I watched enough hudl on him. Had to decipher was he really that strong off the edge or was opponent that weak. I think with added weight he can come off as one heck of a fast d end but frame sets up for OLB right now. 6’4 245 and has had a year in weight room and conditioning. He is ahead of the incoming freshman.

    He should have put on some muscle weight by now but I don't guess they'll make that info public until the Spring game -- or maybe even until right before the start of next season. :/ . I asked Seth and Chip and even BA last Winter to lobby the coaches to release periodic updates at least about H/W for the entire roster but it didn't happen.
    Anyway, all I know about Robert is that he has done some role-playing on the Scout Team

    I'm not sure where the coaches get their H/W #'s anyway. Malkom Parrish is a really nice and friendly guy, but he is not 5'10, 190 lbs.

    Beal went to my High School, Norcross, then transferred to IMG. From what I've heard he wasn't starting so he transferred back to Gwinnett's Grayson.
