As a freshman in 2007, Jenkins posted 7.5 sacks while working into the line rotation, but this year he rarely leaves the field and he's posted 52 tackles and an oustanding 16.5 sacks.
"I'm really good at mixing up my moves and getting the offensive lineman off balance," Jenkins said. "I know what I'm going to do before the snap and I don't let anyone get in my way."
On the recruiting front Jenkins is still waiting on his first offer, but that could come soon.
"Ball State, Western Michigan, Michigan State and Eastern Michigan have all been recruiting me pretty hard," Jenkins said. "Eastern Michigan and I are going to talk this week and it was about an offer and setting up a visit, so they are probably the closest to offering me.
"Western Michigan actually invited me up there for last weekend's game and the other schools are talking to me about possibly visiting soon too, but I haven't set anything up yet."
Because he was a full-qualifier, Jenkins will sign with a school in December and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
