Demens building bond with Don Brown

Detroit (Mich.) Country Day 2018 linebacker Kolin Demens talks about the big win, latest in his recruitment, thoughts on Wolverine’s defense headman Don Brown and more.

Detroit (Mich.) Country Day traveled to Troy on Friday night and from the get-go dominated the game. The Yellowjackets jumped out to an early 28-0 lead after the first quarter and never looked back to go on and win 36-14. The Colts offense never seemed to get going, especially with junior linebacker Kolin Demens patrolling the middle of the defense and making plays. The 6-foot-3, 205-pounder didn’t see much action after the first half, but was in on several plays. There were many moments the hard-nosed linebacker would come up the middle and disrupt the play before it even got going.

Demens holds offers from Michigan, Michigan State, Maryland, Missouri, Nebraska and is hearing from several others. However, the hometown Wolverines could be tough to beat with his connection to the program with Demens' older brother, Kenny Demens, played for the Maize and Blue from 2008-11. He has been watching the Wolverines this season and their new aggressive blitz-heavy defense under defensive coordinator Don Brown has caught him attention. Now, he's begun to build a strong relationship with Coach Brown. 

“He’s a nice man and I like him a lot," said Demens. "First time meeting him, I had a blast. I talk to him a lot since September 1st since I can talk to coaches now and I can call them, text them, so it’s really good."
