Every Sunday, SEC Country will unveil its offensive and defensive recruits of the week based on their weekend performance. In order to qualify, recruits must have at least two SEC offers.
This week’s SEC Country Offensive Recruit of the Week honors goes to D’Vaughn Pennamon, an Ole Miss running back commit from Manvel, Texas.
SEC Country’s Offensive Recruit of the Week: D’Vaughn Pennamon
D’Vaughn Pennamon got the nod for SEC Country’s Offensive Recruit of the Week honors following a highly impressive performance Friday in his school’s playoff game. Pennamon, a 2016 Ole Miss running back commit, had 360 yards rushing and five touchdowns on 23 carries, according to Corey Roepken of the Houston Chronicle. Pennamon led his team to a 70-56 win over Clear Creek High School.
“My coach just challenged me to be a dog, and I did just that thanks to my offensive line,” Pennamon told SEC Country.
Pennamon committed to Ole Miss in July.
