DE DaJaun Drennon (6-4, 230, 4.56) of Sickerville Timber Creek, New Jersey is one of the best defensive ends that I have seen this year or any year. On his highlight film, Drennon is pretty hard to block and very rarely gets blocked.
Drennon lines up on either left or right defensive end and sometimes lines up as a linebacker. When he is rushing off of the edge, he is a very tough block for any offensive lineman and so he is either getting a quarterback sack or a quarterback hurry.
With him lining-up at defensive end and teammate Greg Webb (6-2, 300, 4.9) lining-up at either nose tackle or defensive tackle, Timber Creek has one of the best defensive lines in the country of any high school team.
Drennon is a pretty sensational athlete who has already started three seasons on the basketball team and at one time he thought that he was going to be playing in the NBA and not the NFL. He has come so far in football, he now knows that he is an NFL prospect.
Another thing that makes Drennon Special is that he is also a very good tight end and he could play that position at the next level.
With his great basketball talents and extra long arms, Drennon is actually a Freak of Nature on the football field. I really believe that he can be an NFL tight end, but right now, he is so valuable at defensive end, he may not ever get a chance at tight end in college.
At the start of March, Webb had over 35 scholarship offers and Drennon had over 25 scholarship offers. I can not think of another defensive line duo on the same team with more offers between them. These two players also led their team to the State Championship as juniors.
On March 1, Drennon already had scholarship offers from Alabama, Florida State, Michigan, Notre Dame, Penn State, Boston College, Cincy, U-Conn, Iowa, Virginia, Washington, Kentucky, Maryland, Ole Miss, Nebraska, Purdue, Rutgers, South Florida, Syracuse, Temple, and Tennessee.
Drennon has already made visits to Kentucky, Maryland, Boston College, U-Conn, Syracuse, and Rutgers. He also is very excited about his offer to Notre Dame and he definitely wants to take a visit to the Irish.
