The following is is a Twitter interview conducted with Denley through direct messages (DMs).

RP: First off, I saw Tech offered recently. How did that go down?

Denley: They offered me on the third day of school.

RP: Which coach offered you? Was it over the phone and what did they say?

Denley: Coach Jinks and yes sir, it was a full ride and they really love me.

RP: I figured it was Jinks with you being at Steele and all. How close are you two? Are you old enough that he coached you at Steele?

Denley: Yes sir, he coached me my freshman year and we are real close. He's like a father figure.

RP: Wow. You said they really love you, have they talked about how they would utilize you at Tech? If so how?

Denley: Playing running back and playing wildcat QB.

RP: Did you go to a Tech camp in the summer? Any other schools?

Denley: No sir I was just in the weight room!

RP: Hahaha. I hear ya. How big are you now? Height and weight.

Denley: 5'10, 176.

RP: You've been described by many as a speedster and you definitely look fast on tape, but I have never seen you in person. Do you have a 40 time?

Denley: Yes sir I ran a 4.39.

RP: Wow. So Justin Stockton just scored his first TD at Tech on Saturday and showed a lot of speed. Who is faster between you two?

Denley: He is, yes sir, but I'm kind of up there with him! He really pushes me a lot.

RP: How close are the two of you? Do you still talk some?

Denley: Yes, we are really close, he's like an big brother to me and a really good person.
