Colton Jenkins takes in OM practice
"I went to Ole Miss' practice yesterday. I actually went to see them practice last week too. I went to Alabama this past weekend, and I went to MSU the Saturday befor," added Colton Jenkins.
What did Colton think about the OM practices?
"It was great. It reminds me of how we practice at Winona. They run similar plays. Their TE blocks and lets go on the route. Robert Lane had a 60 yard TD run on a dump off pass. It was great. We run the same thing. I score a lot of TD's off of that. The best thing about the practice was they included me when they were breaking down, you know, where they say Rebels on three. I really enjoyed that."
Is it important to Colton to play the tight end on the college level?
"I love the position. I have grown up playing tight end. I like to play it. I feel comfortable at tight end. I love to catch the ball, but I will play where ever they want to put me."
Colton received a scholarship offer from MSU a few days before he visited there for Jr Day. How did the visit go?
"I talked to Coach Grimes and met with Coach Croom. I like Croom. I love the way he put his words. He told me your word is who you are, and that is how I feel. We watched them practice, and it was nice. I have been going to MSU for a while."
How did the Alabama visit go?
"It was A-Day I went to. When I first got there, I signed in and spoke with Coach Woods. I also met Coach Shula, their TE coach, DL coach, and their OL coach. I talked to all of them. We went to practice, and I was impressed with them as well."
Auburn was the first school to start to recruit Jenkins; have they been in touch lately?
"They have been sending me letters, but I have not talked to them on the phone. I just talk to MSU, Ole Miss, and Alabama."
Is Colton getting any nearer to a decision?
"I was going to see if anything else came out of my senior year, but right now, I have those three (MSU, OM, Bama) I like a whole lot. I am getting a lot of stuff from Michigan, but I doubt I will go there. It is so far from home. But, I like Ole Miss. I am really thinking hard about committing to them."
Colton will attend the scout combine at Ole Miss on April 30th.
