Former Penn State Commit Picks Miami

A former Penn State Class of 2024 offensive lineman commitment, who committed and de-committed from Penn State in June, has committed to the University of Miami.

Deryc Plazz, a three-star offensive tackle who announced his commitment to PSU June 4 and de-committed less than two weeks later, tweeted his commitment to Miami Friday, July 7.

After de-committing from Penn State, the 6-foot-5, 289-pounder from Jacksonville’s Mandarin High School, was down to Miami and fellow ACC school NC State. He ended up deciding to stay in Florida. Plazz played at Andrew Jackson— also in Jacksonville— last season and helped his team to a district championship. He’s also played high school basketball.

Plazz tweeted his de-commitment from Penn State  11 days after his commitment

“Dear Penn State,” Plazz’s statement began. “I want to express my deepest gratitude for the warm welcome and the opportunity you extended to me to be a part of your family. It meant the world to me.”

Plazz went on to write that, after reflecting, he realized he “rushed into this decision without giving it the careful consideration it deserves.”

”Choosing the right path for my future and my family is of utmost importance,” he wrote, “and I feel it is necessary to take a step back at this time.”

Plazz clarified that the decision to de-commit wasn’t a negative indictment of Penn State football.

”Your program is outstanding,” Plazz wrote, “and the support and belief you have shown in me has been truly remarkable.”

Despite losing Plazz, Penn State’s ‘24 class is still in good shape up front. The program has four OL committed and 21 players total, ranking No. 7 in the country according to 247Sports.
