Our Take:

Luke Winstel

Denmark High School football played its first season in 2018. They’ve already made a name for themselves as a winning program, going 32-21 in the first five seasons- partially due to high-end talents like Dee Crayton and four-star Tennessee commit Sham Umarov.

Crayton has steadily climbed up recruiting boards over the past two seasons. A pivotal moment for the four-star came when he dominated against West Forsyth in 2021, contained current UGA tight end Oscar Delp, and led his team to a 21-10 region win.

Crayton reads the game well and is a smooth athlete. Like fellow four-star Clemson linebacker commit Jamal Anderson, he made impressive plays as a stand-up edge rusher in his senior season. Crayton is the full package at linebacker. 

Morgan Thomas - A very quick stand-up outside linebacker. A blitz specialist, who can find the hole and hit it very quickly to stop the run or disrupt the pass. Good speed to the outside to stop screens and off-tackle runs. Very instinctive player who visualized the quickest line of attack. Loose hips and confident in playing zone coverage.
