Dennis was a standout all-around player in high school who has yet to gain his footing at Michigan. Despite being a three-way superstar, Michigan can’t seem to find a place for him. After redshirting as a freshman, he played in the first three games last season on special teams and was never heard from again.
It’s going to be tough to break in at cornerback in 2022, also, with both D.J. Turner II and Gemon Green returning with starting experience, as well as 5-star freshman Will Johnson now on the roster. Things could potentially open up in 2023 for some more contributors when Green and Turner will likely be gone, but for this season, Dennis’s best chance to play is probably to expand his role on special teams.
Prediction: Backup cornerback and special teamer
