The Hertford County standout is waiting for his first official offer, but several schools appear to be close to pulling the trigger. "I don't have any offers yet," he said. "My coach says a couple of schools are talking about offering soon. I think Kentucky and North Carolina State might be the first."
The talented athlete will take an unofficial visit this weekend. "We are going to North Carolina on April 8. It is the same day as the Clemson spring game, but I will be going to Clemson."
What will me the most important factor when Jenkins selects a school? "I just want to go to a school where I can play tight end," responded Jenkins.
Which school is recruiting the North Carolina standout the hardest right now? "North Carolina is," responded Jenkins. "The only camp I know I am going to for sure is North Carolina. I am not sure what other camps we are going to visit."
As a junior, Jenkins caught 16 passes including two touchdowns. However, he is also a devestating blocker. He also finished with nine sacks playing on the defensive line.
