"I loved the atmosphere," Jenkins told Badger Nation about his October 4th official visit to Madison. "I'm from Florida and so visiting Wisconsin you see the complete opposite. I liked how active and excited the student section was during the game."
A talented player like Jenkins has been playing offense as a wide receiver and defense as a corner back. His junior year, he racked up 229 yards and two touchdowns on the ground and had 23 catches for 367 yards and one touchdown in the air including three kickoff returns for touchdowns. As a corner back he had 28 tackles with three interceptions. Jenkins has proven to be a versatile player in high school and he hopes he can transition that to the college level.
Jenkins would like to play cornerback if he has the option to choose but will do what ever the coaching staff asks of him. Several schools have been looking at other positions then wide receiver and cornerback as possible options for him.
"Some schools are possibly going to try and play me at the kick return or punt return position." said Jenkins.
He has two official visits coming up in the next six weeks. He has an official visit to Pittsburgh. this Friday when the Panthers host West Virginia. On December 13, he will see the Mountaineers play again when he heads up to West Virginia for a visit. When it comes down to favorites, however, Jenkins is still undecided and wants to take his time to weigh out his options.
"I haven't really sat down and thought about it. It's still up in the air." said Jenkins.
Jenkins plans to make his decision around the signing date of February 3rd, one day before signing day. Jenkins has been preparing his body to endure the physical regimen that is needed to excel at the college level.
"I've been getting myself in shape to endure the hard work," he said. "This coming Monday I plan on starting to lift hard and I also play for the basketball team, which has been keeping myself in good condition. I'm planning on transitioning my work ethic at a higher pace and get myself in the college mindset for performance."
Jenkins, based on his stats, is a hot commodity on the market for some prominent schools. The Badgers hope that he can be the next big thing to come into Wisconsin and make a difference from the start.
