Beamer shooting his way to D1 looks

6-6 junior college wing Bryce Beamer of College of Central Florida is a wanted man.

Basketball programs such as Missouri State, Lamar Western Michigan, Utah Valley, Mercer, UW-Milwaukee, Northern Colorado and Southern Utah have shown interest, among others. Binghamton also reached out recently to offer him a scholarship.

“It felt good to be offered by a Division I school again,” he said. “We had our region 8 tournament and I ended up with 28 points, 6-of-9 from three point and had eight rebounds in a game, and they just offered me on the spot.”

Everyone needs a good shooter and right now Beamer is shooting 39-percent from three. His quick release is something to marvel but that’s not the only thing coaches have paid attention to.

“Most people love the passion and grit when I play the game,” he said. “Coaches say I’m that kind of kid that does the little things to make teams win besides the fact I shoot the ball.”

Beamer still has some playing to do this season so his recruitment is still ongoing. Plenty of programs are still doing their homework and getting involved, so his recruitment will remain open.

However, when that time comes to narrow down, and decide, the process will be difficult but at least he knows what he’s looking for in a program.

“Everyone wants to win but I really want to be part of a winning program,” he explained. “Alongside just a great team atmosphere.”

Beamer is a full qualifier with three years left to play after redshirting his freshman year at the junior college level.
