Although he no longer plays high school basketball here in South Carolina De'Riante Jenkins loves his home state. He still keeps in contact with all of his childhood friends and even plays AAU ball with the Upward Stars.
He messaged us to give us the very latest regarding his recruitment which has really taken off since he moved to Florida to play for West Oaks Academy and compete on a national level during the high school season as well.
So what was it like moving from Lake Marion to Florida to help give his skill set additional exposure and how has it worked out thus far in his opinion?
"It was very good this past season. It helped introduce me to a lot of exposure and I got a lot better I think. Every part of my game has improved. I'm playing against good competition everyday in practice and in the games."
With his stock rising in such a hurry Jenkins told us where things stand in regards to his recruitment currently and how things have gone so far on the AAU circuit.
"I'm wide open to everybody right now. I have no timeframe or anything. I'm really enjoying it and being on the Adidas circuit it's pretty cool."
