After attending a school camp in June 2017, 4-star defensive tackle Hakeem Beamon made his commitment to North Carolina.

Nearly a year later, the 6-foot-3, 245-pound defender has decommitted from the program, per his Twitter account:

“After much prayer and thought, I have decided to decommit from UNC. I want to thank Coach Fedora, Coach JP, Coach Adams and the Tar Heel family for everything they did for me. I also want to thank my family for their support and guidance as I navigate this process.”

In the time since Beamon made his commitment to North Carolina, he’s picked up offers from Alabama, Penn State, Ohio State and other programs. He also has taken an unofficial visit to Clemson back on March 3.

Beamon is the No. 20 ranked prospect at his position in the Class of 2019, per 247Sports composite rankings.

The Chesterfield, Va. (Lloyd C. Bird) product is the No. 7 ranked player in the state.

Beamon is explosive off the ball, getting to the next level and tracking down the ball carrier. He’s relentless, pushing through to find his way to the quarterback. He has decent speed to play at defensive end, but his size and strength makes him an ideal fit at defensive tackle.
