Jenkins committed to Jay Wright and Villanova on Sunday.
"I picked Villanova because coach [Jay] Wright and the coaching staff presented me with a great opportunity and a great plan and it was something that I really couldn't turn down to go with a great education," Jenkins told Scout.com.
Jenkins, Scout.com's No. 74 overall prospect in the 2013 class, also strongly considered Clemson, Miami, Rutgers and Xavier. Jenkins took a recent trip to Villanova and trip helped firm up his decision.
"Going into that visit I had already known where I wanted to go and what I wanted to do," Jenkins told Scout.com.
"Just coming in, I can get a great a education and an opportunity to get better and chase all my childhood dreams and hopefully win a national championship at Villanova," he said.
Jenkins is Villanova's first pledge for the 2013 class.
