Penn State has picked up a commitment from four-star Pittsburgh defensive end Tyreese Fearbry.

The top player in western Pennsylvania, Fearbry seemed destined to commit to the Pitt Panthers for the majority of his recruitment, but an official visit to Penn State last month was enough to catapult the Nittany Lions to the front. The edge rusher took four official visits in June, visiting Pitt, Kentucky, Penn State, and Auburn.

The Fearbry File

  • Class: 2022
  • Size: 6'5/210
  • Pos: DE
  • School: Perry Traditional Academy (Pittsburgh, PA)
  • Composite Rating: ★★★★
  • Composite Rank: No. 253 overall (No. 12 EDGE)

The edge rusher has been on the Power 5 radar for some time, but offers began to pour in after his junior film began making the rounds. On top of the schools he visited, he also held offers from West Virginia, Miami (Fl.), and South Carolina. Expect schools, especially Pitt, to continue their pursuit of Fearbry for the foreseeable future as there's a long ways to go before National Signing Day.

Fearbry was named All-City by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette after logging 29 tackles and ten tackles for loss this past season. He also caught nine balls for 89 yards and one score as a wide receiver. 

The 6'5 prospect is the second defensive end to join Penn State's 2021 class, with the other being Ken Talley. The Nittany Lions are looking to add at least one more in this cycle, with all eyes now on Maryland native Dani Dennis-Sutton. 

Penn State's class is now up to 16 members, and jumps to No. 4 in the nation.
