I talked to Centennial cornerback Martin Jenkins this afternoon and he updated me on his trip to Florida this past weekend for the Friday Night Lights camp.
Jenkins, you’ll recall, is a lightning fast prospect whose recruiting star has been on the rise ever since he received a scholarship offer from Clemson last week.
Jenkins said he thoroughly enjoyed the camp and getting a brief tour of Florida’s campus and facilities.
“It went great,” he said. “There was a lot of competition down there and that’s the way I like it. I talked to one of their defensive backs coaches (Vance Bedford) afterwards and he said I did a good job. We exchanged some information and then we left.”
Alas, Jenkins didn’t get what he really wanted. “I didn’t get an offer out of it, at least not yet,” he said with a laugh.
Even if Jenkins doesn’t hear back from the Gators, he’s getting more and more notice from major D-I programs. Ole Miss and North Carolina are just the latest to contact him. The majority of interest he’s been getting is from schools in the MAC. . . .
