Louisville, Maryland on top for WR Dontay Demus

CLIFTON, Va. -- Washington (D.C.) Friendship Academy wide receiver Dontay Demus' recruitment is picking up steam and he spoke with Scout at The Opening Regional at Centreville High School.

Dontay Demus' offer list has grown to double digits.

The Friendship Academy standout is still considering all his options, but two schools have moved ahead of the others.

"I'm open to all schools and still evaluating everything, but Maryland and Louisville are my top two," said the 6-foot-4, 185-pound Demus. "I'm probably going to narrow my list to five next month. Maryland and Louisville will make it. Some other schools with a good shot are TempleRutgers and Navy."


He gave a thought on his top schools.

Maryland: "It's the hometown school," Demus said. "They also offered me first and show a lot of love. They've also been recruiting well. A lot of my friends I've known since I was little are going to play for Maryland.

 "(Defensive backs) coach (Aazaar) Abdul-Rahim used to be the coach at my school and always stays in touch. I like him and we're building our relationship. He's told me they don't have a lot of big receivers and I could play early and make a big impact."

Louisville: "They were actually the last school to offer and it's an offer I had been hoping to get for a long time. I like Lamar Jackson and the offense and the receivers. I also feel like I'd have a chance to compete for early playing time.

"I've been in contact with (wide receivers) coach (Lonnie) Galloway. He's straightforward and always tells me what I need to know.  I'm looking forward to talking to him and the rest of the staff when I visit sometime in the next month."

Demus hopes to make his commitment before the end of the summer.
