Name: Damani Dent
Weight: 196 lbs.
High school: Jacksonville (FL) Terry Parker
Class: Redshirt freshman
Jersey number: #9
Last year: I ranked Dent #90 and said he would redshirt (LINK). He redshirted.
TTB Rating: 82
Dent was a member of the 2022 class who did not play at all in 2022. In fact, he left the team for a while due to some personal issues, and he was not on the roster for much of the season. So this is quite a precipitous drop, perhaps the biggest in the countdown’s history. Ranked even below many walk-ons, my concern here is that Dent spent a year away from football. That hurt his football conditioning so much, he even shrunk by an inch after being listed at 6’0″ last year!
I do still have high hopes for Dent, but losing out on a year of development when other talented classmates and position mates like Zeke Berry and Keon Sabb probably does not help him in the race to get on the field.
Prediction: Backup safety, special teamer
