Pitt Football To Get Official Visit From 4-Star Safety Koy Beasley
More and more highly ranked players are showing interest in Pat Narduzzi’s program.
Today, 2024 4-star safety Koy Beasley announced that he’ll be making an official visit to Pitt during the weekend of June 8-10.
Beasley attends LaSalle High School in Cincinnati, Ohio and holds offers from Pitt, Georgia, Boston College, Kentucky, Minnesota, Purdue, Rutgers, USC and West Virginia. Pitt defensive coordinator Randy Bates is leading the recruitment to land Beasley.
During his most recent visit to Pitt for a spring practice at the end of March, Beasley spoke with Pittsburgh Sports Now‘s Karl Ludwig about his visit and overall impressions of Pitt.
“My visit was great,” Beasley told PSN. “I had a good time; it was a good experience and I got to watch practice. It was just a good visit.”

“I got to watch practice this time to see how all of the coaches coach, got to sit with the coaches in meetings and hang out with the coaches, so it was just different.”
Beasley and his father used the visit as a chance to check out how Pitt operated. He wanted to see how Bates and Cory Sanders coached individually, although both come together as a coordinator and safeties coach, respectively. But he saw the intensity, the scheme and how defensive backs play in that scheme.
He’s able to play cornerback, or really anything in a defensive scheme, but Pitt’s staff sees him as a safety — a free safety in the mold of All-ACC safety Erick Hallett.
“I got a lot of comparisons to Erick Hallett, so I really watch how he plays to see how I fit in Pitt’s defense,” Beasley said.
As a junior at LaSalle, Beasley racked up 882 all-purpose yards and added 40 tackles, five pass breakups and an interception defensively — following up on an explosive sophomore season.
Beasley has made recent visits to Pitt, Purdue, USC, Cincinnati and Georgia.
He wants to make his commitment after his official visit schedule this summer, which will come before his senior season at LaSalle.
