When asked about why he chose Penn State in an interview with Rivals, Dennis-Sutton described, “I trust their process, you know.” They’ve been putting guys in the league and that’s my ultimate goal.” He described Penn’s State’s recruiting as being “consistent” and “loyal”, as the school was in touch with him since his freshman year.

Dennis-Sutton elaborated that it was a good opportunity to be playing at Penn State with some of his former teammates, but described it as not being of the utmost importance. “At the end of the day, we have to do what’s best for me,” he said. “But, you know, like I said, it is cool to play with my former teammates [and] we have that connection and that bond as soon as we step on the field,” he added.

In another interview with VSN, Dennis-Sutton described Georgia as being a target of interest before his commitment, describing it as a “close second.”

In Dennis-Sutton’s appearance in the All-American Bowl, he recorded a sack in the game, an impressive feat for a defensive player. The top-ranked football player in Maryland, Dennis-Sutton has a lot in store for the future at Penn State and beyond.
