What they're saying: "Beason is an electric player. He is dangerous in the open field, showing an extra gear and a great burst. Beason is shifty and will find running lanes and when he gets moving north and south he will hit the nitro button and make a huge play. He has a knack for finding the end zone and is a home run hitter who can score from anywhere on the field. Beason is one of the most explosive prospects in the TXHSFB 2019 class and plays for a program that is known to send many prospects to the next level. As he has developed Beason has also shown the ability to play defensive back and is considered as a prospect who could play on either side of the football." - Greg Powers, 247Sports
