Denham visited Ole Miss in early December, and has since scheduled visits to Utah (January 14) and Cincinnati (January 7). Denham is also expected to visit Oregon and Arizona.
"I haven't planned out the other ones yet," Denham said, when reached by phone earlier this week.
The 6-foot-6, 215-pound Denham had 40 catches for 475 yards and seven touchdowns in his final season at East Los Angeles CC – a member of the Southern California Football Association.
Denham had hoped to be a December graduate, but will have to return to school for the upcoming semester to finish up coursework.
So rather than hurry his decision, Denham is taking the process a step at a time. He described his visit to Ole Miss, which ended December 6, as "real cool."
Some three weeks later, and on the eve of Christmas, his interest in Ole Miss hasn't wavered.
"It's still good," he said. "I don't have a favorite school, but Ole Miss is still at the top. I've talked to (Ole Miss), and they're coming by the first or second week of January."
Ole Miss lost its leading receiver, Markeith Summers, and fellow senior Lionel Breaux to graduation. Denham sees an opportunity. Of the receivers returning, only three, juniors Melvin Harris and Jared Mitchell and senior Derrick Herman, are upperclassmen.
The trio combined for 36 catches in 2010, including 30 from Harris.
"I know a starting spot isn't going to be given to me, but I know if I go in there, I could be a good player and be successful," Denham said. "If I do go there, I'll have an opportunity. There's a lot of coverage over there. The SEC's a big conference. If I stand out, I'll go to the (National Football League).
"I like the offense. They've got some good players and get a lot of people open. I'd be open a lot. There's a lot of opportunities for me to get the ball."
Ole Miss' sales pitch, according to Denham, surrounds junior Randall Mackey. Mackey, a 6-foot, 190-pound dual-threat quarterback, redshirted during his debut season. He's expected to compete with junior Nathan Stanley for the starting job vacated by Jeremiah Masoli in spring practice.
"They pretty much say Randall Mackey's going to be the next guy," Denham said. "And with a scrambling quarterback, if there's ever a bad situation, he can maneuver out of the pocket."
Recruiting is currently in a dead period. Coaches are permitted only one phone call per week to prospects, unless a given recruit is a mid-semester graduate with the ability to enroll in January. Even then, though, there are contact limitations.
So Denham is biding his time. Not that he isn't continuing in his deliberation process.
"That's what I'm doing right now," he said of narrowing his wide-ranging list of scholarship offers. "That's the plan. I'm trying to get the visits out of the way so I can go ahead and choose."
