Auburn, 'Bama chasing same recruit

11 posts in this topic

.

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." 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.

If he's smart he'll realize that if he takes any of the other offers, he'll find out that once he starts his first camp that the coaches think he'll fit better on defense.

Yeah neither program needs a RB honestly so its no surprise they would want to get a great athlete and move them to DB, something everyone can use more of.

True, you can never have too many quality DBs

Your right. I know we have a true freshman RB named Eric Smith that looks like he has the potential be a yet another legendary Auburn RB before he's done.

Isn't Alabama quite loaded in regards to young RB's as well?

He'll end up going to Auburn or Alabama and play CB. He'll get his 'shot' at RB, but he'll move to the secondary.

I think he has a conditional offer from us, quite frankly I don't think we really want him too much just due to numbers. We have told Trent that he's our only RB for this class (Marrow is a situational back or a linebacker). And I know for a fact he'd be quite low on our list as a DB, we already have 1 CB committed with Dre Kirkpatrick on his way and we're still going after a couple more that are highly touted.

I think the smart thing for him to do would be to go to a school that wants him to be a RB.
