For anyone that was patiently waiting to see Tennessee head coach Josh Heupel posing with a Chuckie doll, well, today is your day.
Class of 2024 defensive lineman Jeremiah Beaman recently wrapped up a visit to the Tennessee Football program in Knoxville. On Tuesday, Beaman posted a series of pictures to his social media from the trip, featuring his family, the Tennessee coaches, and Chuckie (who can be spotted in each photo).

Beaman lists as a four-star prospect according to On3 Sports and 247 Sports’ recruiting rankings, followed by a three-star ranking from Rivals. In addition, On3 Sports’ composite rankings have Beaman as a Top 100 overall player (No. 92), the No. 11 defensive lineman in the class, and the No. 3 player from the state of Alabama.
The Birmingham, Alabama native, standing at 6-foot-4, 265-pounds, currently plays ball for Parker High School in Birmingham. Beaman is a prolific athlete though and is also a standout member of the track and field team with discus and shotput.
As a member of the 2024 recruiting class, Beaman is on track for a December 2023 signing, which means that there is likely still a whole lot of time between now and his commitment. Beaman has already collected 12 scholarship offers, including powerhouse programs such as Alabama, Auburn, Miami, and Oklahoma. Tennessee extended Beaman an official scholarship offer on May 3, 2022.
It looks as though the in-state programs have the jump on the rising high school junior player, though. While these projections are still very early in the overall timeline, On3 Sports’ Recruiting Prediction Machine has Alabama and Auburn leading the way at 34.4 percent and 30.1 percent respectively.
