Breakout Season?

Darnell Jenkins is a senior wide receiver from Miami Central who has 49 career catches for 492 yards and four touchdowns. Jenkins has impressed a number of people in previous off-seasons and is due for a breakout season.

According to tight end Greg Olsen, he believes Darnell Jenkins will the 'Canes offensive breakout player of the year.

"We all see it everyday and I think he is going to have a big year for us," Olsen said.

Last year, Jenkins (5-10/185) set career-highs with 25 receptions, 242 yards, and 2 touchdowns.

With his great speed he should be utilized more downfield and have a number of big plays.

Fall practices begin in two weeks and Jenkins will be one to watch.
