PSU lands commitments from pair of 4-star defenders Fearbry, Durant

Tyreese Fearbry

Penn State celebrated the Fourth of July by picking up a big in-state commitment Sunday afternoon. Tyreese Fearbry, a 4-star defensive end from Perry Academy in Pittsburgh, chose the Nittany Lions over Pitt, Kentucky and Auburn.

Fearbry (6-foot-5, 225 pounds) is rated the No. 8 prospect in Pennsylvania by 247Sports. He is the 16th member of Penn State’s 2022 recruiting class, and second commit of the day.

The first was 4-star defensive lineman Zane Durant from Orlando. The 6-1, 251-pounder chose Penn State over Miami, Indiana, Auburn and others.

You can check out this exclusive video below from our sister site Pittsburgh Sports Now, which caught up with Fearbry for a one-on-one interview. And here’s some good background on Fearbry’s recruiting from PSN.

 

 

“It was tough coming down to the last few schools. … Penn State is not too far from home, so where my family can come and watch the games,” Fearbry said.

Fearbry was asked what he thinks Penn State can do to take his game to the next level.

“I’m already long, so a lot of coaches know I’m long, so they know what they’ve got to do to make me a better athlete. Because you can’t teach length,” he said. “But they’re gonna put the weight on me, the muscle on me and and they’re gonna show me what I need to do to be the best.”

As for Durant, he is rated the No. 46 defensive lineman in the nation by 247Sports. He visited Penn State June 18.
