    Four-star class of 2024 corner Kaleb Beasley is announcing his college commitment Friday night following his high school football game, the Nashville native announced on Twitter.

    Beasley is committing between a top group of LSU, Notre Dame, Oklahoma and Tennessee. Beasley plays at Nashville area power Lipscomb Academy. The Mustangs are 8-0 on the season and play CPA Friday night ahead of Beasley’s commitment.

    The 6-foot, 179 pound corner ranks as the No. 175 player in the country and the No. 2 player in the state of Tennessee according to the 247sports composite rankings.

    Beasley has been a frequent visitor in Knoxville this year, visiting four times total and twice in the last month. The blue chip recruit was in Tennessee for both the Florida and the Alabama games. Announcing his commitment date just days after the Alabama visit could be a promising sign for Tennessee.

    While Beasley has been to Tennessee more than any other school, he’s also twice visited Notre Dame and LSU and visited Oklahoma back in March.

    247sports director of football recruiting Steve Wiltfong put in a crystal ball prediction for Beasley to go to Tennessee following his visit to Alabama.

    Beasley isn’t the only instate class of 2024 prospect that visited Tennessee for the Alabama game. Dynamic athlete Boo Carter and linebacker Edwin Spillman — the No. 1 player in the state — also joined Beasley in Knoxville.

    Tennessee currently has three commits in the 2024 recruiting class including five-star athlete Jonathan Echols, four-star receiver Mazeo Bennett and three-star defensive lineman Carson Gentle.

    The Vols’ 2024 recruiting class ranks ninth nationally according to the 247sports team rankings.
