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.
