It's far too early for junior offensive tackle J.J. Denman to start thinking about official visits. He won't be taking those trips for another year.
For now, though, the 6-foot-7, 305-pound prospect from Fairless Hills (Pa.) Pennsbury is trying to do all of the research he can on the schools that have been recruiting him.
Boston College, UConn, Pitt and Rutgers have verbally offered Denman and plenty of others have shown interest.

The last school Denman visited was Penn State. That was for the Nittany Lions game against Michigan State at the tail end of the regular season.
"That was the last one," Denman said. "It was good. I didn't see much of the school but the stadium was cool. They were playing Michigan State.
"I have them really high on my list. They're near the top of my list. They're not number one but they're up there near the top."
What other schools might be near the top of his list?
"Notre Dame and I'll probably look at some SEC schools and Big Ten schools," he said.
Denman went on to say he's hoping to visit a good number of schools whenever he can work out the dates for travel.
"I'm trying to go to Florida, LSU, Penn State and Michigan. Then maybe Wisconsin and Nebraska."
Denman said those trips will probably be for camps next year.
Pennsbury finished with a 5-5 record on the year. Denman lined up at every spot on the line except center.
