HEADING INTO HIS official visit to Washington State, three star cornerback Darius Allensworth didn't…
Checking in with future Coug 'backer
"If it hadn't been for Coach Morris and Coach Choate, I probably wouldn't have committed to Washington State," said Jenkins. "I was kinda upset when I heard Coach Morris was leaving.
"But I'm still committed to Coach Leach."
Jenkins, who was upbeat and energetic when reached by CF.C, said Washington State defensive coordinator Mike Breske was in touch with him right after Morris, his primary recruiter, made the decision to return to Texas Tech. Breske also came by for an in-home visit last week.
"It was good to meet with Coach Breske again…he talked to me about all the new kids that are coming and how great of a class it is… they're looking for a new linebacker coach but he asked me to also keep in touch with him, at least once a week. He's a good guy," said Jenkins.
IT DOESN'T GARNER the same amount of attention but recruiting is always just as much about holding onto commitments as it is about gaining new ones, especially down the homestretch -- and because pretty much every school sees attrition and movement in their recruiting class.
Baylor and Stephen F. Austin were also both by for in-homes last week, said Jenkins.
"But I'm most likely still going to be going to Washington State," he said.
JENKINS PROJECTS AS a BUCK linebacker in Washington State's 3-4 after he fills out his frame, although he could also fit into other linebacker roles as well.
His senior tape shows a high school middle linebacker with some speed.
