"Mississippi State was the first one to offer me. Oklahoma and Middle Tennessee have also offered," said Jenirro. "Other schools showing serious interest in me are Ole Miss, Tennessee and Baylor. Tennessee, Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Oklahoma are already trying to set up visits for the fall."

He's attending a couple of college elite camps this summer as well as an invitation-only Nike camp.

"I'm going to Mississippi State's elite camp. Ole Miss has asked me to come to their elite camp. I'm going to it," said the second-team MAC All-State selection. "Alabama has asked me to come to their camp, but I don't think I'm going to make it because it is the same week as the Nike All-American Camp. That's an invitation camp that invites something like the top 200 players in the nation."

Although he plays forward in high school, colleges seem to feel that his best position on the next level is on the perimeter.

"Everybody is recruiting me for point guard except for Tennessee. They want me to play two (guard)," said Jenirro, who plays guard for the Jackson Tigers, an AAU team based in Jackson, Mississippi.

Jenirro's named his top seven schools, although an eighth school could easily jump into his top seven.

"Really, I don't have a favorite. I'm looking at everybody. The ones I'm looking at are Oklahoma, Baylor, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Rice, Mississippi State and Oregon," he said. "I also like Middle Tennessee because they have been recruiting me the longest. They have been asking around about me since the 10th grade. Their coach told my high school coach if I came there I would play tomorrow."

He talked about his top seven.

Oklahoma - "I like them because they really show the most interest out of everybody. Just about every tournament that I have played in, their coach has been there."

Baylor - "They have a really good program and treat their players well."

Ole Miss - "I like them because they are close to home. And they have a good program."

Tennessee - "I like their style of play."

Rice - "I really don't know much about them, but they are showing a lot of interest in me."

Mississippi State - "They are the same as Ole Miss, they are close to home. I'm about 10 minutes from their campus. I really like Mississippi State because some of my family members played for them. And I have friends that go there."

Oregon - "They have been showing a lot of interest in me. They call me and send me a lot of letters. They send letters that include things like help keep the gym rocking here at Oregon and other things like that. And they send pictures with their players on them and there will be one player blanked out and they write that this could be me."

Will Jenirro sign with Mississippi State or Ole Miss so that he can play close to home or will he decide to sign with one of the out-of-state teams that is recruiting him? Keep it right here on Scout.com to find out.
