    Middle Tennessee native Kaleb Beasley released his top 10 on Twitter Saturday afternoon. The class of 2024 four-star’s top group included Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Penn State and Tennessee.

    Beasley is entering his junior year at Nashville’s Lipscomb Academy where he plays for Super Bowl winning quarterback Trent Dilfer.

    The cornerback ranks as the No. 219 player in the country and No. 3 player in the state of Tennessee according to the 247sports composite rankings.

    Lipscomb Academy is well represented in 247sports state of Tennessee rankings in the 2024 recruiting class. Mustangs’ linebacker Edwin Spillman is the No. 1 player in the state and the younger brother of Tennessee commit Nate Spillman.

    Beasley has been a frequent visitor in Knoxville, taking in the Vols’ win over South Carolina last fall before making return trips in January and May.

    The 6-foot corner has also taken a pair of visits to Notre Dame, Clemson, Alabama and Georgia. Beasley has once visited finalists Oklahoma, Auburn and LSU.

    Tennessee has just one commit in its 2024 recruiting class but it’s one of the nation’s top players. Five-star Georgia native Jonathan Echols committed to Tennessee on the Fourth of July after visiting Knoxville last month.

Ryan also spent last three years at Volquest providing strong Tennessee baseball coverage of Tony Vitello's resurgent program.

Did we leave out the part about Ryan interning for the Smokies?
