Brandon Jenkins is one of the top defensive players in Memphis as well as the state of Tennessee. It has been posted on several internet sites (Newberg, Emfinger and ESPN) that Brandon committed to Mississippi State Wednesday night. Gene's Page recruiting writer Charles Johnson talked to Brandon's mother Thursday night. Here is what she told Charles.

Mrs. Jenkins, I'm calling to find out if Brandon has committed?
"Yes, to Ole Miss, last night."

[Because several recruiting sites (Newberg, Emfinger and ESPN) has him listed as an MSU commitment, I asked her about that.]

Rumor has it that he also committed to Mississippi State last night. Is that correct?
"Not really."

Not really? I'm not really sure what you mean by that.
"Well, he hasn't signed anything."

Oh, I understand what you mean since signing day is not for about a week. So he has never committed to the Mississippi State coaches?

Ok, thank you Mrs. Jenkins.
