Brave commits to Volunteers

(Franklin, GA) — After leaning toward Tennessee since getting a scholarship offer from the Vols in February, Heard High football player Aaron Beasley announced his commitment to the Volunteers via twitter Sunday afternoon.

The Braves’ three-star athlete returned to Knoxville on Friday night for a weekend visit for the fourth time in less than four months.

The 6-foot, 220-pound Beasley chose the Vols over Florida State and Auburn and could see playing time on either side of the ball at UT, although most likely on defense.

Beasley is the No. 48 safety in the class of 2019 and the No. 63 overall recruit from the state of Georgia, according to 24/7’s composite rankings.

Tennessee’s recruiting class is currently ranked No. 8 in the SEC and No. 20 nationally.

Beasley had an uber productive season on both sides of the ball for Coach Tim Barron in 2017 earning first team Region 5-AA accolades and second team defensive honors.

Offensively, he rushed for 1749 yards on 226 carries with 29 touchdowns. He also caught 13 passes for 163 yards and another TD.

Defensively, Beasley had 66 tackles, including six for a loss, two recovered fumbles, three interceptions, and a fumble recovery returned for a TD.

Beasley told Ryan Callahan with 24/7 sports that receiving his offer from head coach first year head coach Jeremy Pruitt was very important in his decision making process.

“Coach Pruitt himself, he called and offered me. That was big. He was the first head coach to do that,” Beasley told 24/7 Sports“I like the vibe up there. I feel like Coach Pruitt and the coaching staff are going to change things around up there. It just feels at home up there.”

The Heard County Braves open the 2018-2019 regular season campaign at Lagrange on August 17.
