Bryson Jenkins, a 6-foot-0, 190-pound outside linebacker / safety prospect from Frisco (Texas) Centennial is starting to pop up on more and more recruiting radars powered by a strong off-season that saw him add some size and weight to his frame.
On Monday, he received some great news when he picked up his first scholarship offer.
"Army," Jenkins reported when asked who stepped up.
"This means to me that all the hard work and 5 am workouts have paid off and now I can keep grinding to get better each and every day to be the best."
Jenkins, who is also receiving recruiting interest from "Baylor, Harvard, and Yale", believes that his versatility sets him apart as a prospect and that is what makes him a prospect who has now been identified and rewarded with a division one offer.
"My size, speed, knowledge of the game, and ability to play anywhere on the field," Jenkins answered when asked about his strengths as a potential college defender.
Jenkins was recently in Waco for an unofficial visit and is on the Bears radar as well. He was really impressed with what he saw.
"I went to Baylor a couple weeks ago and loved the campus and the way they conduct practice," Jenkins said. "I really fell in love with the culture they were creating down there. It's something special."
As a junior in 2016, Jenkins collected 40 tackles, four sacks, five quarterback hurries, and an interception.
