WR Ryan Jenkins Commits to Clemson

New, 16 comments


Ryan Jenkins (5'11 179, 4.5 40) originally from Alpharetta-Milton Ga., brother of CB Martin Jenkins, finally committed to Clemson as expected today at The Opening. Jenkins picked Clemson primarily over Oklahoma State. He was rated the #26 player in the state of Georgia and the #47 WR overall. He's rated at 3 stars, which I think is fair.

Jenkins was not highly recruited until later this spring after some impressive showings at several camps against good competition. His size is not impressive, nor is his outright speed that of similar-sized Germone Hopper, and I imagine that held him back from getting more offers. His route-running and hands have helped him garner a lot of kudos at the camps though, and he shows some quick feet like his brother on film. Those quick feet and dime-cuts are really useful for a slot receiver, where he'll play at Clemson.

I think its possible his rating in-state goes up a little this year, but I'm not certain he goes up to a 4-star player. He transferred to Lassiter from Alpharetta-Milton. He was recruited by Tony Elliott, but it bears mentioning that Kevin Steele offered and got Martin as a favor to his dad, because Martin was not very highly recruited at all.

We expect Jenkins to be the first of 3 WR takes this cycle.
