With a month left in his freshman year of high school, Thomas Dale running back Chris Tyree, fresh off his national title run in the 100-meters, has received his remarkable 12th scholarship offer.
He announced last week that he has received an offer from the Penn State via Twitter.
“Blessed and honored to say that I’ve received an offer from Penn State #WeAre”

The offer from the Big Ten school comes on the heels of several other big names in the past few weeks.

Chris Tyree
West Virginia, Florida State, Wake Forest, North Carolina, Maryland, Temple, Georgia and now Penn State have all made offers to Tyree since the start of April.
The 5-10, 170-pound playmaker has been able to attract schools so early in his career with his tremendous speed and cunning agility. Just recently at Nike’s ¨The Opening¨ in D.C. Tyree placed in the 99th percentile among his class in the 40 yard dash and agility, and also placed in the 96th percentile in vertical jump.
With this uber athleticism, Tyree was able to help out the Knights in numerous ways on the field. This past season he rushed for 716 yards and 7 touchdowns. He also recorded 25 tackles, 11 pass breakups, a fumble recovery, and interception on defense.
Not only that, Tyree broke the Thomas Dale all purpose yard record and collected over 1,000 all-purpose yards last season.
Such numbers earned Tyree 6A Conference 3 All Conference Honors.
With this offer, it is Tyree’s second offer from a Big Ten school. This offer comes from four-year coach James Franklin, who has made a dramatic impact on the Nittany Lions football program having a winning record each year. His most notable season is from last year as Penn State would go 11-3 and coming just short of the College Football Playoffs. Although missing the playoffs, the Nittany Lions were good enough to make the Rose Bowl, which they played USC coming short again losing, 52-49.
As Tyree has more and more opportunity to showcase his gifted athleticism, his recruiting stock should continue to rise as he enters his sophomore year.
