Warwick, Va., product Matt Bevins was playing the waiting game that the majority of kickers around the country play every year, just hoping for those offers to come through and be able to continue what they love doing in college. This week one came through from the right program and Bevins jumped on the chance, verbally committing to Liberty.

Matt Bevins, a 6-foot-3, 186-pound kicker from Warwick High School was being recruited by East Carolina, North Carolina, North Carolina State, William & Mary, West Virginia and Richmond, but ultimately decided recently that Liberty was where he wanted to spend the next several years of his life, giving them his verbal commitment on Sunday.

“Liberty offered me a full scholarship and I took it,” Bevins said. “I took my official visit there last weekend and everything was top-notch. The facilities were great and I got along really well with the coaching staff. I just felt very comfortable during the visit and knew it was the right place for me.”

“One thing that played a big role was that it is a Christian school and faith is a very important part of my life,” Bevins added. “I know I will receive a great education at Liberty and get to play quality football. They actually won their conference this year as well, so that is a big plus.”

Bevins is 15 of 19 over the past two seasons on field goals and has a long of 47 yards. He has only missed one point after attempt, which was blocked. He averages 39.5 yards per punt and 65 yards per kickoff.
