DT Janoris Jenkins Profile

5-11, 180 pound defensive back prospect Janoris Jenkins continues to see his offer list grow.

"I just got offers recently from West Virginia and Rutgers. I am not sure how many I have now. It's hard to keep track," Jenkins told CUTigers.com in a recent interview.

When asked about his current favorites, Jenkins responded, "I like everybody about the same right now."

The prize recruit does not plan to take any visits this spring.

"I haven't really been on any visits the past few weeks. I don't really have any planned yet. I might go to Miami this summer. I need to check with my coach."

Which team is recruiting Jenkins the hardest right now?

"I would say South Carolina is," replied Jenkins.

The talented defender would like to play with some of his Pahokee teammates at the next level if possible.

"We are talking about staying together," he said. "But we don't know if it will work out or not. We have talked about a package deal."

The Florida standout has been trying to get in touch with coach Ron West of the Tigers.

"I haven't heard from Clemson as much lately. I need to get hold of coach West. I've called a few times, but I haven't been able to get him," said Jenkins.

Don't expect an early commitment from Jenkins.

"I am going to take all my visits first. I will take them after my season. Then I will make my decision," said Jenkins.

A talented two-way player, Jenkins helped lead his team to the Class 2B state title as a junior. He finished the regular season with 698 yards (11.6 per carry) and six touchdowns. Defensively, he had 49 tackles, which led all Pahokee defensive backs.
