Jenkins to narrow his list

Around this time last year, Ryan Jenkins had just one offer -- Clemson. Now he's up over 10, a majority of which were sent out within the last few months.

After Saturday's camp stop at Georgia, he'll announce his final list of favorites later that night. A commitment will be announced in three weeks while competing at The Opening.

That's where things stand for Jenkins, a three-star wide receiver from Lassiter High School in Marietta, Ga.

Dabo Swinney and Jeff Scott were among the Tigers' coaches who spoke to the No. 59 wide receiver in the country.

Jenkins spoke with CUTigers on Friday night after his trip to Clemson.

"They were just telling me that they really want to get a chance to coach me," he said. "They're telling me all the positions they'd put me at. I wouldn't play just one [wide receiver] position. They'd move me all over the field.

"They were just saying they really want me up there."

With a Clemson offer already in hand, Jenkins opted to compete during the afternoon practice at the Clemson camp.

The dude is a competitor.

"It's always fun to go out there and do 1-on-1s, and just to play football, period. I know Sammy Watkins did it last year, so just to have some fun," Jenkins said.

Georgia will have him in for camp on Saturday. An offer might be extended.

"It would mean a lot," he said. "Even though it is the in-state school, I don't know too much about it. I've never been there as a recruit."

Saturday will wrap up college visits. Alabama hosted Jenkins for earlier this month. The Crimson Tide didn't offer, but did let him know where things stood.

"In terms of an offer, they were telling me that they want to wait until they get done with all their summer camps. After that, they'll evaluate all their receivers that came through camp and see who they wanted to offer," Jenkins said. "They told me that won't be until July 15. I'll be committed before then."

He'll commit at The Opening during the first week of July.
