Jenkins Returns from Pivotal Georgia Trip

ATHENS – Jordan Jenkins knew coming into this weekend that his trip to Georgia was an important one.

From the sounds of it things went pretty well.

"Georgia is definitely a school I am still considering, and they will make the next cut," Jenkins said Saturday.

Jenkins said last week that the visit to Georgia this weekend was important as he was looking to narrow his college choices down.

"I wouldn't definitely say this weekend will put Georgia in or out for me, but it will be something close to that," the Harris County prospect said last week in an interview with Scout.com's Chad Simmons.

But Jenkins said he got a chance to experience a few different things on this trip to Athens.

"The trip this time was different because I got to watch film on my past season, and Coach Grantham taught me some simple moves to fix my game. He wants me to use my hands more to beat guys off the edge," Jenkins said.

Jenkins and a slew of other outside linebackers got to work with Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham at Georgia's annual Dawg Night, which took place at Sanford Stadium.

Jenkins is considered a five-star prospect and the top overall player in Georgia this year according to Scout.com.

"I think I could fit in well at the outside linebacker position for Georgia," he said. "They definitely made me feel wanted. Coach Lilly came and took us straight to Coach Grantham's office as soon as we got there so we could get some one-on-one time."

That one-on-one time appears to have paid of for the Bulldogs for now.
