For the second time this off-season, Shaun Beyer checked out the Iowa football program. The latest stop for the Cedar Rapids Kennedy athlete occurred last Saturday.
Beyer watched the open spring scrimmage in Kinnick Stadium. He dreamed about his future.
"I would have to say the thing that stood out to me was seeing the guys out on the field getting after it and realizing that it could be me one day," he said.
The 6-foot-5, 200-pound Beyer projects as a tight end or outside linebacker at the next level. The Iowa coaches like him at both positions.
"They said they don’t know what they see me as yet," Beyer said.
Beyer is scheduled to camp at Iowa on June 7. The staff told him that they’ll work him out at multiple spots.
Assistant Reese Morgan spent quite a bit of time talking to Beyer, he said.
"He spoke to me about track season and how he will be at some track meets," Beyer said. "He also said he is very excited for next year’s football season for me.
"I also talked with coach (Jim) Reid. He said he is interested in me and is excited to see me at camp. Coach (Kirk) Ferentz said he’s excited to see me at camp."
Beyer caught 35 passes for 471 yards and eight touchdowns as a junior. He also led the Cougars with 73 tackles on defense.
In addition to the Iowa camp, Beyer said he will be at Iowa State, Kansas State, Northern Iowa, Northern Illinois, Western Illinois and Northwest Missouri State this summer.
