Jenkins holds six offers

David Jenkins is an emerging 2016 forward from Washington who already holds six scholarship offers, with a few schools standing out.

One of the top 2016 scorers in the Northwest is 6-foot-1, 180-pound Tacoma (Wash.) Wilson shooting guard David Jenkins.

Even though Jenkins is undersized, he plays hard and is a serious threat to score with his jump shot off the dribble.

“I shoot the ball really well,” Jenkins said. “My coach tells me the best part of my game is my shooting. I try to work on different types of shooting; not just threes but pull-ups, straight line dribble pull-ups, all of that.

“I’m working on being a little more crafty. I’m also working on my athleticism.”

Jenkins listed Boise State, Portland State, Washington State, Saint Mary’s, Pepperdine and Montana as offers, with three schools standing out for him.

“I like Boise State and USC; I’m going to visit down there. I like Oregon too,” he said, before breaking down what he likes about all three schools.

USC: “USC has a great transition game. I know their coaches really well and I feel like they would take good care of me. They run a lot of dribble drive motion, and I like their offense.”

Oregon: “Oregon is a high-paced game. They have elite athletes, you have to be fast and be able to get the ball and go.”

Boise State: “Boise State has really good fundamental basketball. They’re all shooters and I like to shoot it.”

Jenkins doesn’t hope to draw things out too long before he makes a decision.

“I’m going to make a decision right before my senior year of high school,” he said. “About a month after the adidas Super 64 in Las Vegas I’ll make a decision.”
