J.J. Denman is bad luck

Pennsylvania Offensive Lineman J.J. Denman (Video Below) is in the news again. Coaches around the country are again after the 6’6”, 300 lbs offensive lineman. Denman committed just two days ago to Rutgers, however today’s hiring of Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers changes things a little.

Denman has been a bit of bad luck to any school he’s been committed to. He first committed to Penn State last summer. That changed as the Penn State scandal broke. He then flipped to Wisconsin. However earlier this month Wisconsin’s offensive staff was raided by Pittsburgh. Thus, he flipped to Rutgers. Today’s news won’t make Mr. Denman too thrilled. He does report offers from Miami (FL), Michigan, North Carolina, and Notre Dame, among others.

Speaking of big, talented offensive lineman, (Wash.) senior Joshua Garnett made his commitment today. Garnett chose between Michigan and Stanford. The 6’5”, 280 lber chose the Stanford Cardinal. This leaves Michigan in a big of a bind, as they wanted one more talented offensive lineman to go with Ben Braden, A.J. Williams, and Kyle Kalis. Fortunately for the Wolverines they still have two other offensive line recruits, and are the favorites to land Chicago (Ill.) Offensive Lineman Jordan Diamond.

Another Pennsylvania kid made his commitment today. Pennsylvania’s #2 rated Tight End J.P. Holtz committed to Pittsburgh over Michigan State. Holtz becomes the 2nd highest rated commit for Pittsburgh only behind running back Rushel Shell.
