High school highlights:

How'd He Get to College Park?

Dennah was an extremely unheralded recruit out of Annapolis Area Christian, playing linebacker in high school before switching to safety at Maryland. Dennah led his team to a state title junior year before enduring an 0-10 season as a senior. He committed to Maryland early, and the school ended up being the only one to give him an offer.

Dennah redshirted his freshman year, earning scout-team player of the week twice. In his redshirt freshman season he appeared in four games on special teams.

Career Highlight:

Getting to see game action in the Foster Farms Bowl.

Dream Season:

Dennah slides in as a key backup safety and provides help against the run for a defense that is replacing much of its front seven.

2015 Prospectus:

Dennah should be a key role player in the secondary and should see time on special teams and defense this season. He could certainly claim a starting safety spot in 2016 after A.J. Hendy and Anthony Nixon graduate.
