4-star DE from Pittsburgh decommits from Penn State less than a month after pledge
It’s been mostly positives for James Franklin and his staff on the recruiting front with the 2022 class. But Thursday night, Penn State took a bit of a hit.
Tyreese Fearbry, a 4-star defensive end out of Pittsburgh, announced that he has decommitted from the program. He will re-open his recruitment and reconsider his options. Fearbry sent out a note on Twitter regarding his decision.
Fearbry is one of the Top 200 overall prospects in the 2022 class, ranking No. 182 overall. The 6-foot-5, 225-pound lineman ranks as the No. 12 edge player and the No. 5 prospect out of Pennsylvania, per 247Sports Composite.

Several programs have extended an offer to Fearbry, who committed to Penn State on July 4. He picked the Nittany Lions over Auburn, Arizona State, Michigan State, South Carolina and West Virginia, among others.
In the 2020 season, Fearbry totaled 29 tackles, 10 for loss, 5 sacks and a forced fumble. He is a three-sport athlete at the high school level, also playing basketball and participating in track and field.
Penn State still owns the nation’s second-best recruiting class and has 22 prospects currently committed.
