"Right now Alabama leads. I like coach (Nick) Saban. I met him there at a Junior Day and I liked him a lot. He's cool and they seem like they really want me. Plus, Alabama is close to home so I would have my family support. It's not too far of a drive for them."
Clemson, Florida and Auburn are also in the mix.
"Clemson is a school I really like and they have some great backs there.
"Florida is a school that has nice facilities. I like the coaches and it's close to home as well.
"I know Auburn is changing up their offense and they will now run the spread. I loved Cadillac Williams while he was there and that's why I wear No. 24.
"I would love to pick a school where I could stay close to home."
Alabama, Auburn, Florida, and UCF are schools that Dennis has already taken unofficial visits to. He might visit Purdue and Miami (Ohio) this summer.
