The Miami Hurricanes are set to take a big class on the offensive line in 2020. OL coach Butch Barry has a quite a rebuild ahead of him, and he has long seen South Dade (FL) 4-star OL Jonathan Denis as an important piece of the puzzle.
“He says I’ll fit in the offense,” Denis said of Barry. “The way I play and how Miami does things is my style of play.”
Denis has been pursued by various Power 5 programs for over a year now, and he is ready to begin wrapping things up with his recruitment.
“I’m just taking visits for right now,” Denis said. “Also, I’m committing on August 9th.”
Ahead of his summer decision, one of those trips was his first official visit of the process, which went to Louisville over May 31st weekend.
“Great school, great program, great coaches, great people, great city,” Denis said of Louisville. “It was amazing.”
Aside from his trip to the Cardinals, Denis has been slowly setting up his other OV’s. He has three others set, including one this weekend to Indiana.
“I also have Oregon and Kentucky, the only other ones that are set up right now,” Denis said. “UK will be June 21-23. For Oregon, July 26 is the date we’re looking at, but it’s not for sure yet.”
With four of his official visits essentially set, Denis has one more on the table. Will it go to Miami?
I want this kid back in the fold. He's a true guard and would be a great add in the trenches. Rivers, Smith, Denis would be a great start going into the 2019 season. Then, continue to go all out for another tackle or two.
