The 5-foot-11, 170-pounder had a breakthrough campaign this fall, earning ESPN Boston All-State honors after helping the Crimson Tide reach the Division 1 North Finals. From the cornerback position, Denis registered 32 tackles and one interception. As a wide receiver, he had 14 catches for 313 yards and three touchdowns, and returned a punt for another score.
Denis, one of the top defensive back prospects in Massachusetts, also has interest from Boston College and Syracuse. He generally projects as a cornerback at the next level.
