A Great Visit for Jenkins

With the Wisconsin program in desperate need to add talented wide receivers, Menasha (WI) junior wide receiver Emanuel Jenkins was impressed with his visit to the Badgers for the spring game.

A under the radar prospect was on campus for the Badgers spring game in Menasha (WI) junior wide receiver Emanuel Jenkins. The Wisconsin native took in the action and spent some quality time with his primary recruiter, secondary coach Ben Strickland.

"The visit was great," Jenkins told BadgerNation. "I had the chance to walk around the campus the day before and on Saturday I was able to watch the spring game. I got to talk to coach Ben Strickland. Coach Strickland told me that if I focus on school and athletics that I will have a great chance to be recruited. He said that he likes my size and hands and that he looks forward to seeing me at camp this summer."

The 6-2, 185-pound lanky wide out finished the season 43 receptions and 475 receiving yards. He reflects back at his junior campaign and how his recruitment is going as well.

"My past season went great," said Jenkins. "As a team, we made it to the semifinals. For me to be just a junior, I feel that my recruiting is going great. I'm hearing from North Dakota State, Northern Iowa, Northern Illinois, Wisconsin and South Dakota. I have South Dakota's spring game coming up. I'm going to be there a day early to see the campus and talk to the coaches."

While Jenkins sits with no offers, he is hoping that one day he can suit for the Badgers and play in Camp Randall.

"I am interested in Wisconsin," said Jenkins. "If I get the chance to play for the Badgers, they will enjoy the show. I'm not being cocky, I'm being confident and if they believe in me, we will achieve the Wisconsin's dream and win that Rose Bowl."
