3-star tight tend Jake Renda has decided to de-commit from the Michigan State Spartans, with whom he had committed to play last month. Instead, he'll be taking his talents to Pittsburgh.
The decision was announced via Twitter on Monday.
“Pittsburgh entered the core of my heart when I was a boy and cannot be torn out,” he said.
Renda is now the second Spartans recruit to de-commit from his original choice along with Gabe Nealy, a three-star defensive back from Florida.
The 6'5, 230 lb. Princeton, NJ native hails from IMG Academy and had been originally fielding offers from several other schools, including Arizona, Boston College, Central Michigan, FIU, Fordham, Holy Cross, and NC State.
Per 247Sports, he's the 75th ranked tight end in the nation.

The Detroit Tigers may be raising a few eyebrows so far in the shortened 2020 campaign, but one local Detroit outlet has proposed a blockbuster trade that would raise eyebrows up to the ceiling.
In order for the upstart Tigers to compete with the likes of the Cleveland Indians, Houston Astros, New York Yankees and Minnesota Twins, ClickOnDetroit is suggesting that the Tigers pull a big-time move with the Bronx Bombers.
The proposal would see the Tigers acquiring Clint Frazier and Miguel Andujar from the Yankees in exchange for a combination of any of the following: Spencer Turnbull, Matthew Boyd, Gregory Soto, Buck Farmer, Jose Cisnero and Joe Jimenez.
