Denico Autry is one of the most heavily recruited junior college players in the country. See him in action in this presentation by ScoutTV.

Originally from Albemarle High School in North Carolina, Denico Autry (6'6/245) played at East Mississippi Community College in the 2010 season and was a standout as a freshman on a very talented defensive line that included Alabama signee Quinton Dial and former Florida signee Gary Brown.

In only seven games Autry posted 60 tackles including 11 tackles for loss. The coaches for Pearl River must have thought all of those tackles came against them as Autry lived in the backfield and also recovered two fumbles in that game.

At this stage of his career Autry is a pass rushing specialist. He has a quick first step and a strong spin move that gets him into the backfield quickly. With his long lean frame, he's not as strong against the run as he is rushing the passer, but he has the frame to keep getting stronger and heavier without costing himself his quickness. In fact, he may actually get quicker as he gets bigger and stronger to improve his core strength and his change of direction.

Autry has offers from the likes of Alabama , Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, and North Carolina.
