Fisher's Aztec Interest is Mutual

Compton Centennial cornerback Denzel Fisher is determined to change how things go next year

This year's Compton Centennial team finished the season at 5-8, losing in the CIF semi-finals. Cornerback Denzel Fisher is determined to change how things go next year, "Last year we weren't a team, we didn't become a team until playoffs," Fisher said. "All those seniors are gone, things are gonna be different next season."

The 6-foot-2, 165-pound Fisher picked up his first offer from San Diego State in early march following his strong performance at the Nike camp at Redondo Union. Oregon, UCLA, San Jose State and Washington are other schools that have reached out to him since then. Fisher doesn't have a favorite at this point or a dream school, "I'm just going with the process, day by day and see what happens with these schools," Fisher told me.

Fisher hasn't been able to visit San Diego State yet, but he's liked what he's heard from the coaches, "They like everything about me. They've never seen a corner at my height and they like how I can break up passes with my long arms." On film, Fisher uses his length to his advantage swatting the ball from receivers and wrapping up ball carriers at the line of scrimmage.

Like most high school prospects, putting on weight and muscle is usually a priority. Fisher is no exception, "I need to hit the weights and put on at least ten more pounds before next season." He's confident about the skills that he does brings to the field, "I'm a great cover guy, I can cover anybody and break up the ball with my longs arms."

With one offer under his belt at this point, camps this summer will be big for Fisher. "I'd like to get it done before senior year for sure. I'm just kind of patiently waiting," Fisher said of when he'd like to commit to a school.
