Penn State Transfer WR Target Tyrone Broden Pushes Back Commitment Announcement

Penn State transfer target Tyrone Broden has pushed back his commitment announcement

Penn State transfer target Tyrone Broden was supposed to announce his commitment Wednesday but has delayed those plans to a date yet to be announced.

He tweeted Wednesday afternoon that his “recruitment is still open.”

The previous night, he tweeted that he was going to commit Wednesday.

Broden visited Penn State this past weekend. The only other school he’s visited has been Oklahoma since he entered the transfer portal, a decision he announced New Year’s Day.

The 6-foot-7 Broden— the tallest receiver in the country at the DI level— would add plenty of height to Penn State’s receivers room.

This past season, he caught 32 passes for 506 yards and seven touchdowns. In 2021, Broden caught 36 passes for 596 yards and five scores.

Before Bowling Green, Broden played at West Bloomfield High School in Michigan. He was a three-star recruit in high school and signed with Bowling Green in December 2018. Since entering the portal, he’s received offers from schools such as Arkansas, Colorado, Houston, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Pitt, Syracuse, Texas A&M, Washington State and West Virginia in addition to Penn State, which offered him Jan. 4.

He has two seasons of eligibility remaining. Penn State’s trying to add to a receivers room that’s losing Mitchell Tinsley (out of eligibility) and Parker Washington (NFL Draft).

Penn State thought it had added to its receivers room out of the portal the night it won the Rose Bowl by landing a transfer commitment from former NC State receiver Devin Carter. But Carter flipped his commitment to West Virginia Wednesday evening.

Carter, a graduate transfer, had 1,906 yards receiving and 10 touchdowns in four plus seasons at NC State.

Penn State is also set to return receivers such as KeAndre Lambert-Smith, who had a Rose Bowl-record 88-yard touchdown reception, and Harrison “Trey” Wallace, who stepped up late in the season after Washington went down with a season-ending injury. Last season, Penn State added Tinsley from the portal, who became the team’s No. 2 receiver behind Washington. We’ll see if the school gets a commitment from Tyrone Broden.

Note: Devin Carter flipped his commitment from Penn State to West Virginia after this article’s initial publication.
