Interest heating up for 2012 OL

Fairless Hills (Pa.) Pennsbury offensive tackle J.J. Denman picked up three early verbal offers a while back and now plenty of other schools are interested.

Pitt, UConn and Boston College are the three schools that have verbally offered the 6-foot-7, 305-pound tackle from the Keystone State. Interest from colleges is hardly limited to those schools, though.

"It's mainly been [interest] from the same three schools that have offered," he explained. "But today people were telling me I've got a bunch of letters from schools like Michigan, Notre Dame, Penn State, UCLA, Stanford and USC."

When asked whether he would be interested in any of those schools Denman laughed and responded, "All of them."

He went on to say that location would not be a decisive factor in his recruitment and he would even give the west coast schools a serious look, in spite of the fact that they are so far from home.

Denman will soon be trying to set up some official visits for the fall months ahead.

"I'm definitely gonna try to get to [schools] on the weekends but I won't be able to do any of the Thursday games or anything like that," he said.

"I'll definitely go to Boston College and Pitt and then depending on what the other letters [he has received] say I might go to one of those [schools]."

Pennsbury lost their season opener but they have a chance to redeem themselves on Friday against Harrisburg. In their first game they simply wore down in the second half.

"I think I had a pretty solid performance but I know there are things I have to work on," he admitted.
