Jenkins closing in on decision 

January, 6, 2012
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. --Four-star defensive end Jordan Jenkins (Hamilton, Ga./Harris Co.) was surprised to learn he would be playing defensive tackle in the first half of the Under Armour All-America Game on Thursday night.

The 6-foot-3, 235-pound prospect surprised himself though when accounted for four tackles and two sacks while playing the position. The two sacks tied an Under Armour record that was originally set by Florida defensive tackle Omar Hunter. Ohio State commit Noah Spence later broke the record with three sacks.
