August 1st in the recruiting world is a big day as official offers roll out for 2024 recruits and phones start buzzing for the 2025’s. It also means that plenty of the nation’s top prospects have made their way home from the last rounds of their recruiting stops and are preparing to lock down for the next chapter.
Could there be any better way to ring in your birthday than to announce your next home? Beavers did just that, making his pledge to the Rebs on his special day.
Beavers, currently ranked the No. 7 JUCO athlete in the nation and No. 3 cornerback for 2024, is fresh off a visit this past weekend to Oxford for Juice Fest, 2023. He is also ranked the overall No. 5 athlete at any position in the state of Mississippi.
The 5-foot-10, 170-pounder chose the Rebels over: Louisville, Troy, Southern Miss, Tennessee, and UNLV. If anyone has strong roots in the football culture of Mississippi it is Beavers, who grew up playing his prep career in Taylorsville before eventually enrolling at Jones CC.
While at Taylorsville, Beavers played under coaches Jay Blackledge and Seth MacDonald where he helped the Tartars finish 7-4.

During his 2022 season at Jones he saw action in 9 games where he started in all but one game. He closed the season with 30 tackles, 6 breakups, a fumble recovery and 1 INT.
Beavers’ commit is indeed another gritty in-state win for the Rebs that could prove to be a driving force on the new Pete Golding defense very soon.
