Speedy Jenkins Talks Auburn Junior Day

Speedy Ryan Jenkins talks about his trip to Auburn and meeting offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler.

Marietta, Ga.—A speedy wide receiver who made a trip to Auburn last weekend, Ryan Jenkins from Lassiter High, already has a pair of offers and is hearing from several top programs.

Getting the chance to see the Tigers and meet the Auburn coaches, Jenkins said he enjoyed his time on the Plains.

"It was my first time at Auburn and I had a real good time," Jenkins said. "They told us all about the facilities. I met with Coach (Scot) Loeffler and he was telling me about the offense and how they will use the receivers. I like it. I like it a lot. I was real impressed.

"What really stood out to me is just the family aspect of Auburn," he added. "I like how when you're walking around the campus it's just like one big family. I felt real comfortable there."

Even though Loeffler already has a lot of experience in the coaching profession, at under 40 years old he also has the appearance of being a young coach. That's something that Jenkins said appealed to him on his visit.

"I like young, energetic offensive coordinators," Jenkins said. "He's definitely one of them after I had a chance to get to know him."

Hearing from Clemson, Auburn, Tennessee and Oklahoma State with offers from Clemson and Louisville, Jenkins has a strong tie to Clemson already with his brother Martin currently playing for the Tigers. Still keeping his options open he said he'll visit Clemson this coming weekend and Vanderbilt the next.

A 5-10, 177-pounder with good speed, Jenkins had 25 catches for 415 yards and five touchdowns as a junior for Milton High.
