Plant linebacker Andrew Beck, who led the Panthers in tackles as a junior, has received a scholarship offer from the University of Miami, according to coach Robert Weiner.

This is the first offer for the 6-foot-3, 235-pound Beck. (USF had offered him when Skip Holtz was still the coach.)

Beck, who has also played at tight end, had 126 tackles, 32 for a loss, six sacks and eight passes defended for the Panthers, who had six players from last year’s defense sign with colleges on national signing day last week.

In fact, two other Panthers linebackers signed with colleges last week: Mitchell Wright (USF) and T.J. Jenkins (Tennessee-Chattanooga).  

Weiner said Beck ran a 4.56 in the 40-yard dash at the Big County Preps Ignite Showcase a couple weeks ago.
