Defensive back Denzel Conyers (Gulfport, Fla./Boca Ciega) was looking towards Tampa's Under Armour combine in May to elevate his recruiting status.

Unforunately bad luck struck Conyers during the final week of practice before Boca Ciega's spring game. A misstep during a practice drill left the 6-foot-2, 185-pounder with a torn ACL, no combine to look forward to and most likely the end of his senior year.

Luckily Conyers had attracted the attention of several schools up to that point and he had offers from UConn, New Mexico, Western Michigan and Middle Tennessee State.
