QB Derell Jenkins 6-3 190 4.5 Bolingbrook, Illinois

Derell Jenkins is an excellent dual-threat quarterback and he's having a terrific 2001 season. Jenkins leads his team into a quarterfinal showdown with undefeated Hinsdale (South) and Illinois bound Mike Trepina this Saturday.

Jenkins has set up his first official visit.

"I'm going to Northwestern (11-30)." Jenkins said. "I'll probably set up the rest of my visits after the play-offs. Wisconsin, Minnesota, Western Michigan and Bowling Green have offered me a scholarship."

Jenkins denies a leader but Northwestern is definitely the school to beat here.
