2024 4-Star ATH Koy Beasley Making Another Trip to Pitt This Spring



In the last two years, ever since a camp appearance before his sophomore year of high school, Koy Beasley has continued to grow his relationship with Pitt.

Beasley, a 6-foot, 180-pound four-star athlete from La Salle High in Cincinnati, Ohio, will make his first trip back out to Pittsburgh since he attended Pitt’s win over West Virginia in the Backyard Brawl last September. He’s scheduled to attend a spring practice on March 30.

It’s been nearly a year since defensive coordinator Randy Bates and Pitt extended him an offer, his second Power Five offer, and as his recruiting process has blown up since then, it’s a big deal to bring him in for another unofficial visit.

“I was super excited that Pitt offered,” Beasley told Pittsburgh Sports Now last May. “It was really a dream. I’ve been rocking with Pitt for a long time.”

Bates originally invited Beasley to a camp before his sophomore season at La Salle, but he didn’t leave the camp with an offer. It wasn’t until last May, a year of solid contact between both sides, that an offer materialized.

He picked up offers from Toledo, West Virginia and Minnesota soon after, and over the last year, he’s also received offers from Boston College, Georgia, Kentucky, Nebraska, Purdue and USC.

With a visit to Cincinnati Thursday, following a visit to Kentucky earlier this year, and scheduled visits to Pitt and USC as of right now, he’s in high demand in recruiting circles.

As a rangy athlete, with the speed and agility to make defenders miss the football in his hands and the ball-hawking ability to pick off opposing quarterbacks, Beasley has the potential to play on either side of the football at the next level. Pitt, as of now, has looked at him as a cornerback.

Beasley — a self-proclaimed wide receiver and defensive back — thrived in the two-way game last season at La Salle. He racked up nearly 900 all-purpose yards and added 40 tackles, an interception and five pass breakups.

He possesses track star speed as well, competing in the 60-meter indoors and the 100-meter outdoors.

247Sports rates Beasley as the 235th-ranked recruit in the class (18th-ranked safety and the eighth-ranked recruit from Ohio) while Rivals rates him as the 44th-ranked safety and the 17th-ranked recruit from Ohio.

On3 is even higher on Beasley, rating him as the 96th-ranked recruit in the class (fourth-ranked athlete and fourth-ranked recruit from Ohio).

Pitt stood near the top of Beasley’s recruiting process early in the process, but it will be important to get him on campus as many times as possible before his senior season at La Salle. Pitt will certainly have plenty of competition along the way.

Pitt hasn’t landed a defensive back in its class of 2024 yet, with four-star DayDay Farmer in place as the first wide receiver, and Beasley will be a top target the rest of the summer.
