Joe Bean to play for Tulsa


Class of 2013 wide receiver Joe Bean (Hooker, Okla.) is on board with the Golden Hurricane, according to the Tulsa World.

Bean, a 5-foot-11, 187-pound prospect, also holds scholarship offers from Colorado State, San Diego State and Wyoming. Kansas State and Southern Miss showed interest.

“The TU campus is like its own little town in a huge city, and the football facilities to me are amazing. I want to surround myself with coaches who can drive me and make me a better player, and the TU coaches are unbelievable. I felt no negativity from any of the TU players. It just felt right. Everything felt right," he said.

Bean claims to have run a 4.39 40-yard dash at a Texas Tech camp and is a member of Hooker's state champion 4-by-400 relay team. He also posted an impressive 94.56 SPARQ at a Nike Combine this spring which included an electronically-timed 4.75 40, 4.41 20-yard shuttle and 34.9-inch vertical.

Tulsa has secured 12 commitments during this recruiting cycle.
