New Commit Says Coaching Staff Impressive

Watching Teven Jenkins and his father walk around the Cowboys half-day minicamp on Sunday afternoon it was easy to look at him and project him in full pads and what he would look like mixing it up with the current offensive line group. As he walked around he spent time talking to some of the current Cowboy offensive linemen.

Starting right offensive tackle Zach Crabtree was over there talking to Jenkins and they looked like they would make a good blocking tandem. Jenkins, on tape, shows up as a mauler who can devastate a defensive lineman but also has excellent feet for pass protection and blocking on the move.

My first question to the 6-6, 295-pound Jenkins was why did he choose Oklahoma State? "How great the coaches were," Jenkins answered. "The coaches are really cool and at the same time they are really serious about their jobs. I was convinced by the coaches."

Jenkins said he does play some left side on the offense in Topeka High's unbalanced package but he is primarily a right tackle, and Topeka High School is primarily a right-hander run dominated. Jenkins is comfortable blocking for both.

Jenkins isn't sure what he wants to major in but he is a good student carrying a 3.4 GPA at Topeka High School.

He was enjoying watching the camp that included his Topeka teammate at running back in Mike McCoy. The 6-2, 221-pound bruiser in McCoy is a good match for one of his top blockers in Jenkins.

"We're going to be good," Jenkins, a soft-spoken young man said. "That is why I was staying to watch the camp, was to watch Mike. We have a chance to be really good this season."

Jenkins is the seventh Oklahoma State commitment and a very important first commitment on the offensive line in the 2016 class. We'll repeat that on looks and tape alone he looks like a very good fit in Stillwater.
