Tyseer Denmark committed to the University of Oregon on November 24. Being from Philadelphia, it was a move he knew would put him in a completely different environment. But just like he does in Philadelphia, he felt at home in Eugene.

Denmark is a 5-foot-11, 180-pound wide receiver from Roman Catholic High School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. According to 247sports, he is ranked as the No. 2 recruit in Pennsylvania, the No. 25 wide receiver in the country, and the No. 147 overall recruit in the country.

Denmark’s aspiration to play for the Ducks started while he was growing up. Watching Marcus Mariota win the Heisman Trophy was a time he remembers watching Oregon play on television.

“Growing up, I used to watch Oregon like so much,” Denmark said. “Marcus Mariota, etc., I used to watch them all the time. So growing up I really loved Oregon, like it was my dream school.”

Despite being over 2,000 miles from Philadelphia, Oregon felt like home to Denmark. He’s wanted to see the country away from his hometown, and Oregon gave him an opportunity to explore.

“I was never the guy where like traveling was a problem for me,” Denmark said. “Going that far wasn’t really a problem to me. Like I said, it felt like home.”

From his first visit, Denmark fell in love with Oregon. He felt like he could be himself and he really felt part of the program and the school.

“The first time I ever been up there, it was just love,” Denmark said. “You can be yourself, you don’t have to fake it. They all respect and love you for who you are.”

He appreciated how authentic the coaching staff was and the people at the university. He felt like he could talk to them about anything.

“I can call them and talk to them like I’m talking to my little brother,” Denmark said. “We can talk about anything. It’s just bigger than football with them. They treat you like you’re one of them.”

Denmark is still getting closer with his fellow commits in Oregon’s 2024 class. Being on opposite sides of the country and in different time zones, that could sometimes be difficult. But being committed since November, Denmark will be a major recruiter as the summer gets closer.
