To say that Tuesday was a big day for Perry junior defensive end Tyreese Fearbry would be an understatement.
Things started for him by getting the news that for the initial national recruiting rankings, he had earned a 4-star designation by the evaluators over at Rivals. Considering this past season was his only year of playing and Perry doesn’t receive the attention that other bigger schools in the area get, that speaks to the vast potential that Fearbry has. While the WPIAL’s Class of 2021 had a handful of 4-star players like Derrick Davis, Donovan McMillan, Nahki Johnson and Elliot Donald, Fearbry (6’5″, 210) is initially the areas lone 4-star recruit.
Following that news, it wasn’t surprising that he added a couple new scholarship offers. Fearbry immediately picked up offers from Arizona State and Coastal Carolina, which is undefeated and currently ranked #15 in the country. Those two offers go along with ones he previously received from Pitt, West Virginia, Cincinnati and Toledo. Often times, college recruiting is a copy cat business so it wouldn’t be surprising to see a number of major programs extend offers to Fearbry over the next month.
The evening ended for Fearbry as he received an invitation to play in the 2022 Under Armour All-America Game, which has been played since 2008 and is one of the top postseason All-Star games for national high school recruits. The 2021 Under Armour All-America Game, which is played in Orlando, Florida, was canceled due to COVID-19 concerns.
The Pittsburgh City League is on a nice run for producing major Power 5 talent with Fearbry, former Westinghouse 4-star DE Dayon Hayes (Pitt) and future Power 5 recruit Ta’Mere Robinson from Brashear High School, who already holds offers from Pitt, Penn State, Michigan, Syracuse, West Virginia and William & Mary. Robinson is in the Class of 2023.
