His sweet jump shot was indeed honed through hours shooting with his dad, or in the gym, and he isn't about to stop now. A focus now is Dennis' diet, to add muscle to his wiry frame.
"Our work here isn't done," Dennis said.
His work has already put him on the Division I radar. Dennis received his first offer, from Northern Illinois, in February. He visited Butler in December. He's recently had contact with Drake, and also been in touch with Lafayette, Wisconsin-Green Bay and IUPUI.
Dennis, who is joining the Team Rose AAU club this year, plans to take more visits in May.
"I think my decision will come in time," Dennis said. "If I can get an offer, or the one I have, I might be ready to commit early. I have no preference."
