3-Star DB Plays Big In Hawaii

This year's De La Salle (Calif.) secondary could be the best they've ever had and All-State selection Damon Jenkins is a big reason why. The 5-11, 175 pound corner had a big game in the Spartans 31-21 win over St. Louis (Hawaii) both in coverage and returning kicks.

Jenkins was assigned to St. Louis standout receiver Jason Rivers and did a very solid job. He breaks incredibly quick on the ball, has the speed to run with any receiver and is a huge hitter.

In fact, Jenkins had the hit of the game leveling St. Louis running back B.J. Batts causing a fumble. He also had two big returns, one on a squib kickoff that set up a touchdown and another on a punt that led to a field goal.

Schools have been slow to offer Jenkins for academic reasons but he could be the most complete corner in the West region and has huge upside at the college level.

California, Fresno State, Ohio State, Oregon, Oregon State, Miami and Washington State are schools he is interested. Only Washington State has offered a scholarship. Jenkins is a three-star defensive back as rated by TheInsiders.com and is ranked 41st nationally at his position.
