Interest Growing for NC TE

One of the top tight ends in North Carolina is receiving interest from several ACC and SEC schools.

Lamarcus Jenkins, a 6-3, 225 pound tight end prospect missed a visit to Clemson earlier in April, but he has visited two in-state schools. "I went to North Carolina and North Carolina State. The visits went good," Jenkins told CUTigers.com. "I really liked North Carolina better. I liked the coaches and the players."

The Hertford County standout plans to take some other visits, but the plans are not set. "I plan to visit some others. I need to talk with my coach about when we can get to Clemson. I really don't know when or where I will go. I am going to the Nike camp in Georgia," he said.

The star tight end is also waiting for his first offer, but that could change during the May evaluation period as several schools are showing interest, including the Tigers. "I don't have any offers yet. I'm hearing from North Carolina, North Carolina State, Virginia, Clemson, Tennessee and Kentucky," said Jenkins.

"I think North Carolina is close to offering. They want me at tight end."

When asked if he has any favorites, Jenkins responded, "No, not yet."

Which teams are recruiting Jenkins the hardest at this time? "I would say North Carolina and Virginia," replied Jenkins.

During his junior season Jenkins caught 16 passes including two touchdowns. However, his head coach says it is his intangibles as a blocker that makes Jenkins an invaluable player.
