PBR: Have you taken any unofficial visits? If so, please describe each visit.
Beloso: I have taken two unofficial visits to Arkansas and Houston. Both were similar in which I toured the facilities and campus with the coaches and got to see the ins and outs of how their program runs.

PBR: Do you have any visits scheduled?
Beloso: No, as of right now I don’t have any visits scheduled, but I will try to visit Tulane and Southern Miss by the end of the summer.

PBR: Do you have any offers at this stage?
Beloso: I have two offers right now at this stage.

PBR: Do you have a timeline for your recruitment?
Beloso: I would like to try and make a decision by the end of the summer, so I can focus on improving my skills and have a really strong fall.

PBR: Do you have a favorite at this stage?  
Beloso: I would say Arkansas is the favorite at this point I love what their program is about and what they are trying to do.

PBR: GPA/ACT?
Beloso: My GPA is a 4.0. I have not taken the ACT yet, but will do so in the fall.

PBR: What showcases or events have been most meaningful to your recruitment thus far?
Beloso: The Marucci Classic in New Orleans really sparked my recruiting, followed by any PBR showcases. Two more things that really helped me as far recruiting was the Under Armour Classic at the IMG Academy that PBR was a part of as well, and the WWBA in Georgia.
