At 6'3 and 246-pounds one of the most explosive defensive ends in the country checks in from Hamilton (GA) Harris County high school.

Currently the nation's 7th best defensive end prospect and 44th ranked overall prospect Jordan Jenkins is a man on a mission when it comes to the recruiting tour. The Jenkins family has decided that he will not attend a school farther west than Texas and farther north than Tennessee.

The Jenkins family has done an incredible amount of research over the past 12-18 months and made plenty of trips to potential college destinations. They have visited Georgia four times with a potential fifth trip coming up for Dawg Night. Jenkins and his family have visited Tennessee, Alabama and Auburn a total of five times with one trip to South Carolina. They have visited Florida four times with the fifth and final college trip coming in a few weeks for Friday Night Lights.

Five Star Defensive End.

The teams with the greatest chance of landing the Peach state star in alphabetical order would be Alabama, Auburn Florida, Georgia, Georgia Tech and Tennessee. The teams to keep an eye on are Florida and Tennessee followed by Alabama and Auburn.

Jordan Jenkins
Top Player in the Peach State.

Jenkins has great natural ability with a very quick first step that often times results in extreme pressure on the ball carrier. Currently in the 246-pound range look for Jordan Jenkins to have a big Senior season even though his high school coaches continue to play him out of position consistently having him crash inside from his defensive end position. They are taking away his greatest strength with his speed rush ability and quick step off the edge. Once Jenkins gets to the next level he will have the kind of coaching that he currently doesn't have that will allow his technique and fundamentals to flourish. Once that happens coupled with his character, commitment and work ethic he has the potential to become a dominating player at the collegiate level.

The Jenkins Family Might be close to a Decision.
