Beasley is currently ranked as the No. 28 offensive guard prospect in the country according to Scout.com.

The three-star standout currently holds more than a dozen scholarship offers, including from Louisville, UCLA, Arkansas, Ole Miss, South Carolina and others.

"I really liked the coaching staff and everything about the facilities and everything about Clemson in general," Beasley said. "The academics were also real good. And I like the depth chart.

"They need tackles and that was really talked about a lot with me and I feel like there's the opportunity to play early."

Beasley is the 12th member of Clemson's 2010 recruiting class, and the second offensive guard from Georgia to commit to the Tigers.

His main recruiter to Tigertown is defensive backs coach Charlie Harbison.

Shortly after he committed, CUTigers.com also spoke with Carver HS head coach Dell McGee.

"He's a hard-nosed kid that is going to do everything the coaches ask of him," McGee said. "He's a character guy that plays through the whistle. A lot of times we have to tell him to hold off. Every time, he's going to give 110 percent as far as his effort level."

Though he plays right tackle at Carver, McGee believes Beasley will be best suited as a guard at Clemson. With 88 pancake blocks as a junior, McGee said Beasley should be a very productive player in the ACC.

Given his height, 6-foot-4 inches tall, McGee said Beasley's transition inside should be an easy one.

"He is a physical player that uses his hands well. He probably needs to work on his first step as far as not false stepping. But he'll improve that this year for us.

McGee said Beasley is also quality off the field, calling him a "model student-athlete."

Scout.com southeastern recruiting analyst Chad Simmons says of Beasley, "He will move up in the rankings later on this fall. I like his feet and drive blocking a lot and he has that nasty streak too."
