This Year's Darnell Jenkins

This year's Darnell Jenkins could be former teammate Courtney Denson.

Miami Central will certainly miss the athletic and big play ability of Darnell Jenkins. Throughout his prep career, Jenkins played nearly every offensive position creating big plays.

That role has been passed down to Courtney Denson. t 5-foot-11 and 185 pounds, Denson handled quarterback duties as a junior and put up impressive numbers. He rushed for 405 yards, while passing for 1,855. And despite missing two games to an injury, Denson was among the County's leading scorers with 21 total touchdowns.

With a 2.7 GPA, Denson will surely get plenty of early recruiting looks. On a questionnaire, Denson says the University of Miami is his top choice, followed by Florida, North Carolina, Clemson, and Virginia Tech.

A cousin of former Miami High standout Cookie Thomas (Florida State grad), Denson plans on attending the NIKE Camp at UM next month. He's part of a tremendous senior class for the Rockets, which also feature linebacker Arlington Highsmith and defensive lineman Bryan Pata.
