Late Saturday evening, Penn State football received three predictions to flip one of its top targets, who is already committed to a PAC-12 team. The predictions submitted by several of the most prominent recruiting experts in the country say that four-star WR Tyseer Denmark will soon flip to the Nittany Lions. Denmark, who has been described as a “generational” talent, is one of the top players in Pennsylvania for the 2024 cycle and previously committed to Oregon last fall.
Penn State football expected to flip Tyseer Denmark from PAC-12 team
One of the top WR targets for Penn State football in the class of 2024, Tyseer Denmark, committed to the Oregon Ducks last November. But James Franklin and the Nittany Lions have continued to pursue Denmark throughout the winter and spring. Always a tricky situation to navigate when a target is committed elsewhere, Denmark was expected to visit Penn State earlier this spring before those plans were ultimately canceled.
However, Denmark unexpectedly appeared on Penn State’s campus for a visit on Saturday. With this development, some of the largest recruiting services began to change their stance on Denmark and the Nittany Lions. Steve Wiltfong and Brian Dohn of 247Sports, two of the leading recruiting experts in the country, put in crystal ball predictions for Denmark to flip to Penn State Saturday night. Both projections were submitted with medium confidence, meaning it isn’t a sure thing yet.

In addition, On3 also has Denmark with a 62% chance of landing at Penn State, according to its Recruiting Prediction Machine (RPM). Oregon, the PAC-12 team where Denmark is currently committed, now only has a 25% chance to keep him in the class until signing day.
Denmark has been described as a “generational talent” by his coaching staff
The expected flip of Tyseer Denmark is receiving much attention, and for a good reason. According to most major recruiting outlets, the four-star prospect is a top-50 WR and top-five player in Pennsylvania for the 2024 cycle. Denmark averaged 119 yards of total offense as a junior at Roman Catholic High School in Philadelphia last season. All told, Denmark finished 2022 with 665 yards receiving and seven touchdowns.
Denmark’s high school head coach Richard Prete has been highly outspoken regarding the four-star WR’s potential. And given the lineage of players to come through Roman Catholic, it’s worth noting. Prete told the Philadelphia Inquirer that he knew when Tyseer Denmark was in eighth grade that the budding star would be one of the best players he’s ever coached.
“Definitely for us, he’s generational,” Prete said to the Inquirer in a November 2022 article. “We had Marvin Harrison here, we had Will Fuller here, and we currently have Tyseer Denmark here. I don’t think they come along too often, and I think the guys at the college level, a lot of them have a great eye, and they’re able to see what he brings to the table.”
Flipping Tyseer Denmark would be a significant development for Penn State football recruiting, given the caliber of player he is expected to become. But the Nittany Lions also have a bare cupboard at WR for the 2024 class. James Franklin has yet to land a WR out of over 15 players committed for the 2024 cycle. If Denmark does become a Nittany Lion, it would perhaps be the most noteworthy commitment since Penn State landed the No. 1 player in Pennsylvania, Quinton Martin, earlier this spring.
