Beard spent this past season playing for Coffeeville Community College, just graduated and will have three seasons of eligibility left. He'll be on campus next month, ready to contribute to an offensive line that will lose three starters.
And at 6'5" and 300lbs, chances are he can take Glenn or Anderson's spots at tackle. Take a look at some of his high school tape.
This is a huge get for Richt, literally and figuratively. Congrats to Coach Friend and congrats to Beard. Welcome to the Dawg Nation!
