Penn State WR Commit Transfers High Schools

An in-state Penn State Class of 2024 commitment will be playing his last year of high school football at a new school.

Tyseer Denmark, a four-star who had previously played at Philadelphia’s Roman Catholic High School, will be staying in Philly, but at Imhotep Charter for his senior year.

Denmark, listed at 5-foot-11, 180 pounds, announced his commitment to Penn State in late June following a surprise official visit.

The reason it was a surprise is because Denmark had been committed to Oregon since Thanksgiving. But on the Sunday of his official visit, June 18, Denmark de-committed from Oregon. Three days later, he announced his commitment to Penn State.

“I think they just got themselves, in my opinion, the best receiver in the country,” Prete told NSN.

Prete said he feels Denmark is “the most complete receiver I’ve ever been around at the high school level.”

So what makes him say this?

“You’re talking about a guy who has an advanced understanding of route running,” Prete said. “You’re talking about somebody who has elite change of direction ability, elite ball skills, so I think with the ball skills, the route running and then what he can do once the football’s in his hands is second to none.”

Although Denmark was committed to Oregon for more than half a year, Prete says Penn State was always on his mind.

“I would say they were never out of the mix,” he said. “I think in today’s world, if a kid commits somewhere, that’s the start of the process. But I would say Penn State did a tremendous job of being active and just maintaining that interest and building that relationship with him throughout his entire high school career. They were always amongst his top two, top three, so these were conversations that we had over the years where we kind of knew that Penn State was home. If you look back, he’s been there multiple times. So this is really no surprise.”
