Wilson, who spent the last 11 years at Iowa, is a known commodity at Timber Creek. He recruited linebacker Quinton Alston to a commitment and has a working relationship with head coach Rob Hinson dating back more than 20 years to when he coached at Woodrow Wilson (Camden, N.J.).
"He was my recruiter at Iowa and we all liked him," Jennings said. "I think it definitely helps Rutgers in recruiting in South Jersey. Coach Wilson recruited a lot of people in South Jersey. He's a nice guy. He's come to the school a bunch of times to see us, so we all know him. He's a great coach."
Nash signed with Rutgers earlier this month and has been active in recruiting Jennings to join him.
Jennings was one of the top performers at the Rutgers camp last summer, where Nash announced his Rutgers commitment. He also visited for multiple games and a bowl practice this fall.
Though nothing is set up, Jennings expects to visit a spring practice with Nash in April.
"I saw [Nash] probably 30 minutes ago in the weight room and he says it every time," Jennings said. "He's always talking to me about it and how excited he is about Rutgers. … They're recruiting me the hardest right now and I like all of their coaches."
"Both were good because I went to basketball games and learned a lot about the schools," said Jennings, who recently saw teammate Zaire Williams sign with Temple. "It was snowing at Pittsburgh, so I didn't get to see much of the campus, but I liked it."
Jennings holds offers from Rutgers, Temple, Pittsburgh, Old Dominion and Delaware. He will unofficially visit Maryland this weekend, with hopes of adding his second Big Ten offer.
"I'm definitely excited because I'm going down for their basketball game against Clemson," Jennings said. "It should be a good environment. … I want to see their facilities and meet the head coach and just learn about them."
