The image to the left is from the Berkshire School. Besong is #23.
In 2005 Besong was a Rivals two star player and was recruited by Boston College, Rutgers, Syracuse and Virginia. His 2005 Boston Globe All-Scholastic bio is here .
He ended up having a year at the Berkshire School were he led the Prep league with 80 tackles. The Berkshire School's press release about him signing with UMass is here.
One interesting side article is this Rivals 2005 list of the Top Ten players in MA. Note that UMass has signed two of the top ten.
Coach Brown and staff seem to be doing an outstanding job with recruiting!
