Carver RB Dennis mulls over Alabama and Auburn offers

11:25 p.m. Wednesday, September 3, 2008

Demond Dennis of Carver, Atlanta was thrilled to learn earlier this year that he had received scholarship offers from SEC powerhouses Alabama and Auburn. But the euphoria subsided just a bit once he read the fine print. “I was excited when I first got [the offers], but now they both want me to switch over to defensive back,” the 5-foot-10, 193-pound senior said. “I want to play running back. “I haven’t had time to talk to either of them face-to-face. But I’ve been told that their depth charts at running back are full.” Dennis also holds offers from East Carolina, Illinois, Louisville, Western Kentucky and UAB. He is being recruited by each of those programs as a running back. Alabama and Auburn’s decision to target Dennis as a cornerback could open the door for the Cardinals. “I know I’m going to take a visit to Louisville,” said Dennis, who started at cornerback for Carver as a sophomore before moving to running back during his junior season. “I’ll try to take a visit to UAB, Alabama and Auburn.” Dennis, who runs the 40 in 4.45 seconds, has plenty of research ahead of him this fall. “I believe once I do all of my visits and meet all of the coaches, I’ll commit,” he said. “It will probably be after the season.”

Carver RB Demond Dennis favors Auburn

12 p.m. Friday, August 22, 2008

Tailback Demond Dennis of Atlanta’s Carver High said he is favoring Auburn over several other college choices. The 5-foot-10, 193-pound Dennis, a member of the AJC’s The Georgia 150, said he wants to take official visits to Auburn, Louisville and Alabama-Birmingham. He is also considering a trip to Illinois. Dennis said some of his other offers are from Alabama, Central Florida, East Carolina, Miami of Ohio and Western Kentucky. “I really like Auburn because they run the same offense we do, and they send a lot of running backs to the next level [NFL],” Dennis said. Dennis plays in the shadows of Carver teammate Darren Myles, who is one of the nation’s top safety prospects.
