Tyseer Denmark, an in-state product from Philadelphia’s Roman Catholic High School, announced his de-commitment from Oregon this past Sunday, on the same weekend where he took an official visit to Penn State that surprised PSU fans.
Denmark had been committed to Oregon since Thanksgiving.
Before that, he had Oregon and PSU in his top three along with Ohio State. One of Denmark’s former teammates, EDGE Jameial Lyons, is singed to Penn State’s 2023 Class. For a while, it didn’t look like Denmark would be joining Lyons,
But now, Penn State appears to be the favorite thanks to the combination of his official visit and subsequent de-commitment.
He 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.”
Penn State doesn’t yet have a receiver committed to it’s ‘24 Class. Only one of its 22 signees from the 2023 cycle, four-star Carmelo Taylor (Roanoke, Virginia) is a receiver. Denmark would also be the first receiver to commit to Penn State since new position coach Marques Hagans was hired in January.
