John Curtis tight end Glenn Beal chose Texas A&M on national signing day Wednesday. 

Beal received offers from nine Southeastern Conference schools, according to 247Sports and it isn't difficult to see why.

Not the highest rated prospect in the class, but at 6 foot 5, 265 pounds, Beal is a massive pass blocker who might have the potential to move into the offensive line at some point down the road or even possibly defensive line.

Beal was a lean to LSU at one point in his recruitment, but named Tennessee his favorite back in January. He was then heavily predicted to sign with Texas A&M going into signing day. He took visits to Tennessee, Texas A&M, Ole Miss and Alabama.

Beal was a big part of a John Curtis team that made a run to the Mercedes Benz Superdome this season before losing to Catholic in the Division I final.

What They’re Saying: “He’s a guy that’s a blocking tight end, but also athletic enough to get out and pass catch. A lot of people think he could develop into a nice offensive tackle down the line, but he’ll start out as a tight end and one of the Top 20 players in Louisiana and one of the better recruit tight ends nationally.” - 247Sports recruiting analyst Shea Dixon.
