Vols makes a cut for the elite 2024 Philly WR Tyseer Demark


As the recruiting class of 2023 continues to fill up, Josh Heupel is beginning to gain momentum with the class of 2024. Tennessee football already had a commitment and took on another last weekend. Now they’re looking for an elite prospect in this class out of Philadelphia.

Tyseer Denmark, an all-grade four-star Roman Catholic high school in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, included the Thefts in its top 12 on Friday. The child from Pennsylvania is between 5’10” and 5’11” and weighs between 180 and 185 pounds.

Joining Tennessee football on Denmark’s roster are the Penn State Nittany Lions, Ohio State Buckeyes, Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Michigan Wolverines, Alabama Crimson Tide, USC Trojans, Oregon Ducks, Texas Longhorns, Texas A&M Aggies, Rutgers Scarlet Knights and South Carolina Gamecocks. He announced the schools on Twitter.

Clearly, Heupel loaded the Vols to the receiver in their 2020 class. However, most of the attention has been on the gap, so he could probably use a little more help in the slot, to especially since this position is already in question with the departure of Velus Jones Jr. from last year.

Although Jalin Hyatt seems like a favorite to fill that, 2024 is his final year of eligibility, and he’ll be a senior in 2023. As a result, Rocky Top is going to have to add some help beyond Squirrel White and maybe Jimmy Holiday. A guy like Denmark could help on that front.

There is currently a City of Brotherly Love tie on UT’s roster with Romello Edwards, but UT hasn’t had too many ties there in the past. However, there’s no reason not to start, and Heupel’s track record in the passing game should make the Vols appealing.

Currently, there are no 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions for Denmark. Ohio State is the Rivals Future Cast’s unanimous favorite, but On3 has Penn State as the plurality favorite, and the Pittsburgh Panthers, who did not make it, are the Rivals Fan Future Cast’s plurality favorite.

Considering all of this, it’s pretty clear that it’s too early in the recruiting process to know exactly where Denmark is leaning, and that means Tennessee football should continue to pursue it. Hey, Tim Banks has a connection to this state, so watch out.
