From his time living in Louisville, Jenkins-Moore said he became very familiar with Big East schools like Rutgers.
"I know a lot about Rutgers," Jenkins-Moore said. "I follow the Big East and saw them a lot. Their defense is really good. I like how they play."
With linebacker being a top position of need for Rutgers in 2012, Jenkins-Moore said he is excited about the possibilities the school can offer.
"I've spoken with [linebackers coach Dave Cohen] a few times," he said. "I like him. All of my options are open. It would be good to get up there, so I can get to know the staff a little bit more. ... I want to go to a place where I have a chance to play. I want to go where I'm going to play and I want to win games."
"I'm really looking at every school," Jenkins-Moore said. "I'm doing my research and seeing what they have. I don't know enough about all of the schools, so I'm still looking all around."
Jenkins-Moore said he plans to take visits after his semester at Pierce and he knows what he is looking for.
"I'm searching for a home away from home," he said. "I've been in a lot of places, now I'm in [California] and the college I choose will be a my new home. I want a place that feels right."
Offered as an outside linebacker, Jenkins-Moore said he could play multiple defensive positions.
"In a good scheme, I'm very versatile," he said. "I'm a linebacker, but I can maybe pass rush in a 3-3-4 or play up in the box or anything. I used to play safety."
He plans to decide in late summer, before the start of his season at Pierce.
