The offers for Brandon Jenkins are coming at a furious pace. Before signing day Jenkins, 6-foot-4, 230 pounds was only holding a FIU offer. Two weeks later he has several.
"UCF has offered, Kentucky, Rutgers, Tennessee, South Carolina and Miami." Adding, "I also have some verbal offers from Minnesota, USF and LSU."
Last season Jenkins had 80 tackles, 20 for loss, 16 sacks and 1 INT returned for a touchdown. He was a machine out on the field and his hard worked earned him an invite to the Army All-American combine in Texas. Only the top juniors are invited and Brandon was one of them.
"I went to the Army All-American combine. I got preseason All-American and honorable mention All-Combine team. I had a really good time there and I think I did pretty well, "
This offseaon Jenkins is working on strength, particularly upper body. He trains with a private strength coach in Tallahassee. He says he's also working on his quickness off the ball.
"I use my size and strength a lot, I'm also quick off the ball." Jenkins said, "My favorite move is the rip move, I'll be working on technique this spring as well."
Growing up Jenkins says he was a Florida State fan, but when choosing a school he is open to all programs he has offers from.
"Right now I don't have any favorites. I need to learn more about the schools that have offered me."
When choosing a school Jenkins is looking for an environment that he fits in on and off the field. He says he's not worried about the type of defense a team runs because he's versatile enough to play different positions. Most teams are recruiting him as a defensive end, except for Florida, Jenkins says they like him at linebacker.
His plans for the spring/summer are not set, but he does know that he wants to hit 4 or 5 college camps over the summer and get a feel for some of the programs that have offered him. Last year Jenkins took 3 un-official visits to UF and 2 at Florida State.
