After dominating local competition for several years in South Carolina, Demonte Capehart made the move to IMG Academy to face a national schedule in 2019.
He often served as the best player on the field in the process. The future Clemson Tiger is 6-4, 290 pounds, but plays like he’s 50 pounds lighter with his quickness off of the football.
He’s among the most advanced men in the trenches with his technique. He can win with speed, swims, spins, a classic push-pull, a powerful club and more.
A balanced rusher with great lower-body strength, Capehart is a threat to push the pocket on every snap. He also showcases elite disengaging ability at the point of attack, critical for any defensive lineman’s consistency.
Some at IMG Academy say that without a doubt, Capehart is the top defensive lineman to come through the prestigious program.
Capehart finished his senior season at IMG with six sacks and 16 tackles for loss.
