Huffman talks Golden Flashes

About a month ago, Beau Huffman was offered by Kent State. He just didn't know it at the time.

Members of the Golden Flashes coaching staff visited the wide receiver/tight end prospect at Massillon Washington high school last month to offer him a scholarship, but through some sort of misunderstanding, he didn't realize what had just happened.

"One of the coaches was in the school three weeks ago, and I guess they offered me then, but I had no idea," Huffman said. "He said he told me but I said, 'I don't remember you telling me that.' He's like, 'Maybe I didn't.' So I guess they offered me three weeks ago."

The confusion was cleared up last week, when KSU offensive coordinator Brian Rock again paid Huffman a visit at his high school.

"The offensive coordinator came in today and he sat down with me and talked to me a little bit and he told me, 'You know, you have a scholarship at Kent State University' and it kind of fell in like that," Huffman recalled.

The offer from the Golden Flashes mark Huffman's second, as he's also been extended an invite to play for Toledo. The 6-foot-2, 203-pounder has a high opinion of Kent State, who is recruiting him to play wide receiver.

"I like it," he said of KSU. "For being a MAC school, it's definitely one of the top MAC schools in the league. They want me to play X receiver over there, so that would be pretty sweet. I like Kent State, yeah."

Huffman said that he's also received interest from Michigan State, North Carolina State, West Virginia, Virginia Tech, and Duke. He said that the Spartans currently hold an edge in the recruitment for his services, and that he's just waiting on an offer from defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi.

"He said I'm like in their top-five on their list, they just want to get me to camp and see how perform," Huffman said. "So hopefully I play well for them."

With camp season around the corner, Huffman declined to set a timetable on his recruiting process. The Massillon native said that when he commits all depends on the time in which any more offers come.

"I'd like to pick up a big offer and commit before the season," Huffman said. "I know film is such a big part of recruiting. I could see myself committing like Week 4 of our season."
