Florida DB Interested In WFU

Brodrick Jenkins, a 5'10, 170 pound defensive back prospect from South Fort Myers High School, has seen his recruitment pick up. The talented corner holds offers from multiple BCS schools. Jenkins recently spoke about his season and where he is with the recruiting process.

Brodrick Jenkins and his teammates at South Fort Myers enjoyed a successful season. The team finished 8-2 on the year but fell a bit short of their goal. "We won 8 games but missed the playoffs," said Jenkins. "We lost two district games which really hurt us."

After a great junior season, area teams became very weary of Jenkins and tried to take limit what he could do this season. "A lot of teams schemed against me this season but I did the best I could. I had 4 interceptions in the first two games this season but after that, I only had 19 balls thrown my way. Also, teams would just kick away from me so I couldn't hurt them in the return game."

There has been no shortage of big time offers at this point for Jenkins and he may be on the verge of a few more. "I have offers from West Virginia, USF, Iowa, and Pitt. Wake Forest is also in my top five but I am waiting on an offer from them."

Jenkins elaborated on his contact with Wake Forest. "They saw me in the spring and really liked what they saw. Some other teams got involved in my recruitment and I think they thought I was no longer interested in them so they backed off a bit. They started contacting me again and I sent them my senior tape and I have heard from them quite a bit recently. I am just waiting on a offer from them."

Jenkins has three favorites right now but hasn't closed the door on any of his top five. "I would say at this time West Virginia, USF, and Pitt are my top three because I have visited those schools. I have two official visits left. One will be to USF and the other to either Wake or Iowa."

When it comes time to make a decision, Jenkins has a few things he will be looking at. "Of course education is important. I want to be an accountant so most schools have that major. I also want a family atmosphere and a good relationship with the coaching staff. I just want to be happy wherever I am for the next four or five years. Of course I would also like to get on the field as soon as possible."
