In the 2024 recruitment cycle, highly-rated cornerback Kaleb Beasley from Nashville, Tenn., made his commitment to the Tennessee Volunteers despite persistent interest from other prominent schools. Defensive backs coach Willie Martinez secured a group of talented secondary prospects, with Beasley standing out as one of the country’s most acclaimed high school corners, ranked at No. 152 in the class by the 247Sports Composite Rankings.

Despite his commitment, Beasley acknowledged the ongoing pursuit from top-tier schools, discussing the continued contact from these programs during media discussions at the upcoming Under Armour All-American Game.

“Kaleb Beasley, the four-star cornerback committed to Tennessee, mentioned that his decision to join the Vols was solidified back in June when he ceased his recruitment. Although Colorado presented a late offer in the season and tempted him with an official visit, Beasley ultimately opted to remain committed to Tennessee,” stated On3’s Kyle Kelly, reporting on Beasley’s remarks.

Notre Dame also maintained consistent communication with Beasley, especially considering his friendship with Deuce Knight, a four-star quarterback commit for 2025 who had received substantial attention from Tennessee during the summer. While Notre Dame’s head coach Marcus Freeman left an impression on Beasley, his childhood allegiance to Tennessee and the perceived opportunities there solidified his decision to stay with the Volunteers.
