The program has recently had success at the running back position, the home of current Texas back Malcolm Brown and Texas Tech commit Justin Stockton; those close to staff have said Denley could be one of the best to ever come out of Steele.
The 5-foot-8, 170-pounder has the speed, previously clocking in a 4.3 forty, and feels like he's improved this fall.
"The season has been great. I've been patient, I've been reading blocks, and I've been learning from Justin," he said.
Denley's game is very similar to Stockton's, as both are smaller, elusive backs with unmatched speed.
"He's been really showing me how to be more explosive, work on my footwork, and follow my blocks," he said.
Colleges have started taking notice of Denley, as the sophomore recently picked up his first offer from Baylor.
"They came to one of my games and they called and said they wanted to offer me. They hadn't shown any interest before, but to have my first offer feels really good," he said.
"Justin always says 'guns up' to me and Josh Malin says 'no, no, sic'em,'" he said with a laugh.
Denley has already racked up over 1000 rushing yards for fifteen touchdowns this season, made even more impressive when taking into account the number of carries Stockton and fellow back D'Angelo Wallace are getting per game.
The Knights' will face off against San Antonio (Texas) Brennan in the fourth round of playoffs this weekend.
