"I've made my decision. I'm going to sign with the University of Arkansas," said Jenirro.

There were several reasons why he chose Arkansas.

"I sat down last night with my mom and we talked about it and and I decided Arkansas was best for me because their style of play really fits my game," he noted. "And I know some of the players that are from Mississippi; Charles Thomas and other players that I played against when I was younger. I felt like it would be an easy transition for me."

Jenirro had cut it down to five schools prior to choosing Arkansas.

"I also considered Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Oklahoma, Virginia," said Jenirro, who also had scholarship offers from Baylor, Tennessee, Alabama, Middle Tennessee State, Central Florida, UTEP, Georgia and several other schools.

He anticipates playing point guard on the next level.

"They want me at point guard," noted Jenirro. "To me, playing point guard is a very important position to play because you have to be a floor general when you are on the court. I love running the offense. I just like passing the ball and getting my other teammates open for wide opened shots, getting in the lane and making easy layups and 15-foot jump shots."

At one point he anticipated that he would be attending prep school next year, but things appear to have changed since he told me that.

"I really didn't know if I was going to have my grades, but I've really been in my books," said Jenirro.

And if he stays in those books he should be playing for the Arkansas Razorbacks at this time next season.
