Southwestern OL Travels East For Camp

Glendale, Arizona offensive lineman Denzell Dotson made the trip east for the July 15th Georgia Tech football camp. Denzell has been receiving interest from schools from the west coast and Georgia Tech has recently started recruiting him. Denzell is returning the interest he's receiving from Georgia Tech.

The big offensive line recruit measured in at 6'2 1/2"-315 at the camp. Dotson also knows his way around the weight room. "I can bench 405 pounds, squat 600 and clean 315 pounds."

Dotson had a good camp going until an injury cut short his participation. Coach Todd Spencer wanted Denzell to come in and show all the coaches what he could can do and he wanted him to do the drills drills and get a lot of reps.

Denzell was having a good camp and did very well in the agility, speed and blocking drills. "The other coaches were liking what they saw of me and then right before we started the one on one drills, I rolled my ankle on the turf at the SAC field."

In spite of the injury, Coach Spencer thought Denzell had a good showing at the camp. "He made contact with me to make sure I was okay and I really appreciated that. Now I will see if what I showed them will get me a scholarship offer from Georgia Tech. I would like to get one."

While he was at the Georgia Tech camp Denzell didn't get to take a full tour of the campus but he did get to see some parts. "I really liked what I did see. It is very nice and different from what you would expect."

Denzell came to the camp with seven offers and is hoping Georgia Tech will be the next offer he'll receive. Arizona State, Washington State, Air Force, Wyoming, Montana, Northern Arizona, and Northern Colorado are the seven schools that have offered Dodson.

"If I get an offer from Georgia Tech I will be back but right now the only thing I have set up is my first official visit which will be to Washington State during the first week of September."

Dotson is not ready to name any favorites. He is hoping to hear back from schools like Georgia Tech, Indiana, and Missouri. "Getting offers from them would make me take long hard looks at them. The time I spent in Atlanta was very good and I'd like to get to know more about Georgia Tech."

Denzell is hoping to make a decision by the middle of October. "I plan on enrolling early as I will graduate in December." Dotson plans to spend November studying for his finals and getting ready for college. "That will be a busy time for me and I want to have my recruiting out of the way." Top Stories
