CEDAR RAPIDS - It took awhile, but Shaun Beyer finally has a FBS scholarship offer. He's actually got two of them now.
Nebraska officially offered the Cedar Rapids Kennedy senior tight end Wednesday, according to Kennedy Coach Brian White. He said Beyer plans on being at the Nebraska-Iowa game the day after Thanksgiving 'wearing red.”
Air Force also recently offered Beyer, who is 6-foot-5 and can run. Military academies do not give athletics scholarships, but all schooling and athletic endeavors are paid for.
Earlier in the fall, Beyer committed to FCS national champion North Dakota State, though he hoped some FBS program would come along. Iowa Coach Reese Morgan has scouted him during Kennedy games, but as of yet, the Hawkeyes have not offered a scholarship.
Beyer, whose team plays Cedar Rapids Washington in a Class 4A playoff quarterfinal Friday night at Kingston Stadium, has 36 catches and nine touchdowns for the Cougars.
He also has 518 yards rushing and four touchdowns and has completed four of five passes for 40 yards.
Defensively, he is third on Kennedy's team in total tackles.
