Jennings Enjoys Rutgers Camp Experience

Timber Creek (Erial, N.J.) 2014 wide receiver Adonis Jennings was one of the top underclassmen on campus for this week's Rutgers camp. Jennings holds a verbal scholarship offer from the Scarlet Knights and yesterday watched his cousin Myles Nash offer his verbal commitment to the program.

Timber Creek (Erial, N.J.) 2014 wide receiver Adonis Jennings offered one of the most enthusiastic cheers yesterday when teammate Myles Nash announced his verbal commitment to Rutgers.

Cousin and close friend, Jennings holds a verbal offer from Rutgers and was happy to see Nash make a decision he felt was the right one.

"I think it's a great choice," said Jennings, who participated in the full, four-day Rutgers camp. "Rutgers has been showing him a lot of love and I think he can be a great player for Rutgers. I'm happy for him."

Jennings is currently high on the Rutgers coaching staff, he said, and sees the chance to play with Nash and former teammate Quanzell Lambert as a factor that increases his interest in the program.

"I would say so," Jennings said. "It's going to be fun coming up here with my cousin. Playing with him, it would be nice. I know definitely he'll try to get me. I'm going to be coming to Rutgers a lot, for most of their games, probably all of the home games. I think it's good that he committed."

Jennings was one of the top skill players on campus during the full Rutgers camp. He came with the rest of his Timber Creek team, which attends one camp per summer as a group.

"I liked the whole campus, the stadium, the whole atmosphere," Jennings said. "I like everything, a lot of things about Rutgers. I like how the coaches treat me, how even like the trainer knows me. Everybody knows me. Everybody comes up and is like, ‘that's Adonis Jennings.' It's been a good experience."

The camp experience, Jennings said, was particularly rewarding because of the heavy competition. He is used to facing tough talent as a state champion, but not in every 1-on-1 repetition.

"I'm experiencing tough competition," Jennings said. "[Paramus Catholic's] Jabrill Peppers, [St. Joseph's (Philadelphia)] John Reid, they've been giving me some of the best competition of my life. I usually go against not-ranked corners. But going against Jabrill, I was doing my thing against him and he was getting me too. We were just going at it. Me and John Reid too, we pushed each other."

Jennings recently added an offer from FCS powerhouse Delaware and is receiving heavy interest from West Virginia and Virginia Tech.

"Those are the two big schools that are really, really interested in me right now other than Rutgers," Jennings said.
