J.J. Denman, a rising junior offensive tackle from Fairless Hills (Pa.) Pennsbury, camped at a few schools over the summer and his performance at those camps has his stock through the roof.
The 6-foot-7, 305-pound offensive tackle can now rightly be considered one of Pennsylvania's top linemen to watch from the Class of 2012.
"I did a few camps this summer," Denman recalled. "I did UConn, Pitt, Boston College and Rutgers. I feel like I did good at all of them. All of them offered except Rutgers, and even though Rutgers didn't offer I felt like it was a good camp.

"I talked to the coaches a lot, actually. I know that I'm a stronger run blocker than I am as a pass blocker. I could definitely work on that, but I feel like I did well."
Denman said he is done visiting and camping at schools for the summer. He is now working out with his teammates and directing his attention to his junior season of high school football.
With three verbal offers in hand Denman is in a much better position than most Class of 2012 prospects.
Denman told Rivals.com that he does not plan on making a decision for a long time, but he didn't shy away from listing a favorite. Of course, everything is subject to change at this early stage in the process.
"Out of all of them (the schools recruiting him so far) I would say Boston College is my favorite," he said.
