Janoris Jenkins talks about his recruitment

Janoris Jenkins spent this summer working hard at camps and combines in order to demonstrate he is one of the top DB's in the nation. SOR had a chance to talk recruiting with the 5-foot-11 and 180-pound speedster from Pahokee HS [Pahokee, FL].

Janoris Jenkins spent this summer working hard at camps and combines in order to demonstrate he is one of the top DB's in the nation. The 5-foot-11 and 180-pounder did not dissapoint as his continually expanding offer sheet demostrates.

"I think kids from the Pahokee area tend to be under-rated. If I played in a different part of the country, I perhaps would get more respect. But overall, as a football player, I work hard and think I am one of the best Db's in the country. And I was fortunate enough to go to several camps and combines, and should coaches how I could perform. Every school I went to, the coaches told me they wanted. They were all telling me I am a great player".

Jenkins took trips this summer to places such as Florida, Florida State, Auburn, Clemson, Rutgers, and South Carolina. "All the schools offer something a little different. I liked every place I visited. The coaches treated me well every where I went".

The 4-star prospect according to Scout.com has no favorites at this point, and will try to narrow things down in the fall.

"I liked all the places I visited. I am open to everybody. The plan is to sit down midway through the season, narrow down my choices, and then commit soon thereafter. While I want to take my visits after the season, I would like to make a commitment in the fall".

Jenkins has kept in touch with all his suitors this summer. One coach who has made a favorable impression is Rutgers' DB Coach Chris Demarest. "I called Coach Demo last week. We spoke for a while. He really wants me to be a part of the class. He tells me I am a special player and could help them in their goals of becoming a national championship level team. We have a good relationship".

Overall, Jenkins' main focus right now is on the upcoming football season. "Recruiting is great and all, but my focus is working out with my teammates and winning a championship this year. Martavious (Odoms), myself, and a few other players have been running hills daily to work on our speed and explosiveness. We have our first game on Friday against Clewiston. We want to put on a good show and play ball".
