22 days left in the countdown. Hey...that’s the same number as Tyric LeBeauf
#22, Tyric LeBeauf, Sophomore, CB
Height: 6’ 2”
Weight: 188 lbs (+8)
High School: Long Beach Poly, Long Beach, CA
How’d he get to the Blue™?
Tyric (pronounced “Ty-Reek”) LeBeauf was a success story of the new early signing period as the Broncos offered him “late” on December 5th, 2017 and his desire to sign “early” led to him to pull the trigger for the December 20th signing period rather than wait and take January visits (as he’d initially planned). A high school teammate of DeAndre Pierce, the lanky corner was rated as a 3-star by both Rivals and 247. As a senior, he racked up 47 tackles in 11 games and also had 4 INTs as well as a sometimes role as punt returner. As a junior, he had just 13 tackles over 9 games, but still had two picks (one of which went for a TD). LeBeauf coveted the Bronco offer over all others, including ones from Arizona, Colorado, Colorado State, Hawaii, Rutgers, San José State, Utah, and Washington State.
The Reed Richards of the squad
Raphael Saadiq from Tony! Toni! Tone! Feels good.
Appeared in 13 games for the Broncos as a redshirt freshman—making 9 tackles and registering one pass breakup. As a senior at Long Beach Poly, made 47 tackles and registered 4 INTS. As a junior at LBP, had two INTs—one of which was a pick-six. Named 7th best cornerback in the west in Scout.com’s post-summer rankings.
As if making projections wasn’t hard enough...now we have to extrapolate out several months and possibly a year? Yikes. Well, if the season HAD started at the original time our guy Tyric would’ve been firmly in the mix for lots of snaps at the CB position. Even as a “lightly used” redshirt freshman, he saw time in all but one game in 2019, so you know the coaches like the cut of his jib. LeBeauf is lanky, and still needs to pack on a few lbs. but he’s already headed the right direction the scales (+8 from last year) and now has several more months of “Pit-shaping” ahead of him. With a bit more bulk, he could turn into a George Iloka clone, and that would be a very good thing.
Boise State has two seniors starting at CB, but behind them is a deep and hungry batch of newbies who I think will establish a no fly zone in the City of Trees for years to come.
Is he on Twitter?
Completely made up fact
Tyric claims to be from Long Beach, but he’s actually from a smaller suburb called Reasonably Long Beach.
