2015 OL Transfers to Bishop Miege
After spending the first three seasons of his high school career at Kansas City (MO) Rockhurst, 2015 offensive guard Jackson Jenkins decided it was time for a change. The big lineman transferred across State Line Road and enrolled at Shawnee Mission (KS) Bishop Miege. "It's a lot different," Jenkins said of his new school. "I really like the coaching staff. They are a lot younger, so there's a little more energy, I'd say. More structured workouts, before and after school. Everything about it is really great so far." Jenkins will compete for immediate playing time, and will likely be protecting three-star quarterback Ryan Willis at one of the tackle positions. Kansas, and will take on those same responsibilities under third-year head coach Jon Holmes. "I would be lying if I said it didn't play in my decision," Jenkins said of the opportunity to work with Grunhard. "I'm sure some college coaches will look at it as an extra year of college coaching. Grunny is a great coach. I really like everything about his coaching style, and I'm excited to start playing for him." With the obvious tie to the Jayhawks, the 6-foot-5, 300-pound lineman says KU has been showing interest in him for a while now. "I worked with Grunny at KU's camp," Jenkins said. "He was recruiting me at Kansas, but that's died down a bit since he left. I think that will pick up again." KU isn't the only program showing interest in Jenkins. He attended Junior Day at Missouri last year, and was recently in Champaign to get a closer look at the Illini. "Mizzou was talking to me a lot before my junior season, but after that, it died down," he said of the Tigers. "I went to Illinois Junior Day, and I really liked my visit there. Coach Ricker talked to me and Ryan. The facilities are great." Now that he's had some time to get familiar with his new surroundings, Jenkins is focusing on his recruitment, and getting ready for his senior year. "I'm really trying to get it out to colleges that I moved."
