Penn State football has its first WR commitment of the 2024 recruiting cycle.
Tyseer Denmark, a four-star, in-state product from Philadelphia’s Roman Catholic High School, announced his commitment to Penn State Tuesday, two days after word got out that he had de-committed from Oregon.

Denmark had been committed to Oregon since Thanksgiving Day.
Before committing, Oregon and PSU were in his top three, along with Ohio State. This past weekend, Denmark surprised Penn State fans by taking an official visit to the school. He ended up committing while still on his visit, and if all goes according to plan, he’ll be teammates with his high school teammate Jameial Lyons, an EDGE signed to Penn State’s ‘23 Class.
Denmark spoke with NSN in April 2022, long before announcing his commitment to Oregon, and said Penn State, then in his top five, “just did a great job recruiting me.”
“I know where I stand with them as far as being a top priority,” he said. “The thought of playing at home interests me. I think it was a no brainer for them to be in my top five based off the relationship that we have established. From a football standpoint, they have everything that I’m looking for. They have a great following, great coaching staff.”
Denmark racked up a team-leading 35 receptions for 665 yards (19 yards per reception) and seven touchdowns in just six recorded games for Roman Catholic as a junior last season.
Penn State also has WR Carmelo Taylor signed from the ‘23 Class. Additionally, former Florida State receiver Malik McClain transferred to Penn State over the winner with two years of eligibility left.
