Deryc Plazz, a Class of 2023 three-star offensive tackle out of Andrew Jackson High School in Jacksonville, Florida, has committed to Penn State.

Plazz chose Penn State over schools such as Duke, Florida State, Miami and NC State. Plazz (6-foot-5, 270 pounds) is the No. 74 player in Florida and the No. 109 offensive tackle in the country from his class, according to 247Sports.

Plazz took an official visit to Penn State this weekend, and his visit secured his commitment, largely due to head coach James Franklin and the staff, he told Brian Dohn of 247Sports.

“One reason was coach Franklin,” Plazz said. “He is very transparent and is a player’s coach. He loves his guys and pushes everybody to be better.”
Plazz also stated that he had a special feeling while on campus as he felt at home, and his mother was definitely impressed by the staff.

“The people at Penn State, when I got here it immediately felt like home,” Plazz said. “Me and my mom felt loved and wanted when we got here and you could tell it was genuine. The guys here all care about each other and they have a great offensive line room, which I am excited for it.”

As a junior for Andrew Jackson in 2022, he recorded 61 pancake blocks and allowed one sack while paving the way for the team to rush for 1,500 yards as the school to go 8-3 and win a district championship.

Here is Plazz’s highlight tape below via Hudl.

With his commitment, Deryc Plazz joins Cooper Cousins, Caleb Brewer, Donavan Harbour, Eagan Boyer, and Garrett Sexton in the offensive line room in the 2024 recruiting cycle.
