Georgia, who finished strong in-state a year ago, just landed a key in-state prospect in ESPNU 150 defensive end Jordan Jenkins (Hamilton, Ga./Harris County).
A top eight player in the state and a top five player at his position, Jenkins is a defender with good size and an impressive wing span for his build. He plays hard and his active nature and use of his long reach can make him tough to get and keep blocked. He should be able to develop into a real productive pass rusher in Athens with his physical tools.
Jenkins is a talented prospect who gives good effort. He does need to keep polishing his technique and work on keeping his pads down, but with some work should develop into a fine defender in defensive coordinator Todd Grantham’s scheme.
