WR Ryan Jenkins Profile
Jenkins, a senior at Lassiter High School in Marietta Ga., has been committed to Clemson since July.
His brother, Martin, is a junior cornerback at Clemson. His father, Lee, played defensive back at Tennessee.
"Coach Butch Jones called me two nights ago. He was just telling me how much they liked me and how much they would like me in their slot position at receiver. He offered me a scholarship, right there on the phone," Ryan told CUTigers on Wednesday. "He was just selling me on the different points of the school."
The eldest Jenkins starred at Tennessee before going on to a professional career in both the NFL and USFL.
"I was pretty happy, because I went to Tennessee games all the time as a little kid, so it was real cool getting the offer from them," Ryan said. "I used to go to games way back in the day."
Whether or not he'll take a visit to Knoxville is still up in the air.
"I'm not sure about a visit or anything like that, because I haven't talked it over with my family or my dad, yet," he said. "Nothing is official. I'm still committed to Clemson, so nothing is official."
Regarding Jones' background, Ryan does have one bit of anecdotal information.
"I know he coached Antonio Brown at Central Michigan and Antonio Brown had over 300 catches in his career under coach Jones, so that was pretty cool to hear," he said.
As a senior, Jenkins caught seven touchdown passes.
