Hailing from La Grange (Geo.), 2015 athlete Mon Denson is carefully pacing his way through the recruiting process. After playing both running back and safety in 2013, Denson is receiving the majority of his recruiting interest at running back.
With 12 offers to his name, Denson has a collection of highly interested suitors including North Carolina, Tennessee and Wisconsin. Denson, who is looking to play safety in college, recently named North Carolina his leader due to their desire in using Denson on defense.
Despite naming a leader at this early juncture, Denson's recruitment remains open as he is taking a methodical, conservative approach to his recruitment. This allows schools that have not yet offered a chance to enter the mix.
Seeing his recruitment as an open playing field has allowed for Denson to fully experience the recruiting process and he is hearing from several programs on a consistent basis.
"Wisconsin, Georgia Tech and Tennessee came by school and talked to me," said Denson. "I just got off the phone with coach [John] Lilly from Georgia and he's coming down for one of my practices. I've been in contact with coach [Chris Kaplovic] from North Carolina on Twitter too."
Denson has had contact from the Michigan Wolverines dating back to January and could see that relationship develop in further months.
"Coach Singletary contacted me," said Denson. "It went pretty good. He let me know they are going to start recruiting me and to see if I could get up there sometime to visit—but no set date."
This undetermined date could manifest itself as a camp visit for Denson who is aware of the Wolverines mid-June high school camp.
"They sent me something in the mail about camp, but I don't know for sure if I will [attend] yet," said Denson.
Denson sent his transcripts to Michigan after their initial conversation. This is a notable event that could shed light on the possibility of an offer in the future, but naturally a visit to campus for camp would greatly help his cause.
