Name: Demarkous Dennis
School: Lafayette (Miss.)
Position: Running Back
Size: 5-foot-9, 195 pounds
Recruitment: Memphis (offer) and USM (offer)
Scout.com Ranking: NR
Scout.com live evaluation: Dennis is shredding defenses this season just as he did last year when he rushed for over 2,200
yards and 26 touchdowns on his way to a state championship. This year, Dennis has rushed
for 2,079 yards and 28 touchdowns on 201 carries.
Many people have wondered why Dennis is not receiving more recruiting
attention than he is currently. He's quick, shifty, and runs with a
low center of gravity. Dennis uses his vision to weave in and out of traffic
but the one area where he does need work for the next level is his top end speed.
