He also said that Cowboys defensive coordinator Bill Young, his recruiting coach throughout the process, was in Gulfport, Miss., on Tuesday afternoon and early evening to pay him a visit.
Jenkins visited Oklahoma State in October and gave the Cowboys a verbal commitment after his visit, but did stress that his mother would need to see things and approve.
Jenkins did visit Miami last weekend, and while announcing his Miami visit in a Scout.com story said he had de-committed from Oklahoma State and was no longer considering them. He said he was down to four schools -- Miami, Georgia (he visits Jan. 21), Florida (he visits there Jan. 28) and Auburn, which he said he did not need to visit.
Now, after the Miami visit a story on Scout site JC Football.com quoted Jenkins as being interested in the Cowboys.
Besides Young, the Cowboys also have Jason Jones recruiting Jenkins, and head coach Mike Gundy has his one coaches visit left as he has not used it.
