PSU Target Tyrone Broden Commits to Arkansas

Tyrone Broden, a 6-foot-7 receiver who entered the transfer portal from Bowling Green, has committed to Arkansas a week after visiting Penn State, he announced via Twitter Sunday afternoon.

Broden’s committed fresh off his official visit to Fayetteville.

He’d previously visited Oklahoma and Penn State after entering the portal New Year’s Day.

This past week, Broden tweeted that he planned on announcing his committed the next day. A day later, Broden tweeted that he was postponing that announcement and didn’t say when the new date would be. Broden visited Penn State the weekend before coming to Arkansas. This past season, Broden 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. After entering the portal, he 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.

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. Now, it looks like Penn State has missed out on Tyrone Broden, who 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 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. The search for more WR depth continues for Penn State.
