Pitt made the day of a young player from Pennsylvania.
Freshman wide receiver Tyseer Denmark (5-foot-11, 180 pound) from Roman Catholic High School in Philadelphia got the big news that he’d earned an offer from Pitt, which was his first D-I offer.
Pittsburgh Sports Now caught up with Denmark following the major news Cory Sanders and Pitt.
“My head coach called me and told me that Pitt offered me,” Denmark tells Pittsburgh Sports Now. “I am really excited about it because it’s my first offer but also because it’s Pitt. To have an in-state school be my first offer means a lot.”
“I can’t say that I expected to get offered as a freshman but everyone always told me that I would. I believe in my ability but the main thing is for me to keep working and prove my worth. This is just the beginning, getting an offer doesnt mean you made it, it means work harder.”

Being just a freshman, Denmark’s still developing as a player but his skill level is evident. We asked this rising star what the strengths of his game are after just one season.
”The strengths of my game I would say are versatility,” said Denmark. “I can play at a high level on offense and defense. I think my ball skills and route running are my strongest skill sets, also my playmaking ability. On offense I can run the entire route tree, and on defense I can get guys lined up and understand shah the offense is trying to do.”
Since his college recruitment is in its infancy, Denmark’s knowledge is limited but one thing stood out to him.
”My thoughts on Pitt as a program is I think they are similar to us at Roman Catholic, trying to build something special. I know they have a great staff from speaking with my coach and I also really like the city of Pittsburgh.”
